Overview

Exact emulation of the original TR909 groove box.

Drumazon synthesis emulates all the sounds of the original TR909. All the instruments are synthesized in exactly the same way as the original, and all of the nuances and details of the original are captured perfectly. In addition, all Drumazon instruments have enhanced controls. This extra functionality allows the user to adjust the sounds further than on the original unit, which opens up a whole new world of sound creation.

Outputs
Drumazon has a flexible output configuration. Every instrument's audio signal can be routed to any of the 11 outputs. This allows users to further shape sounds individually or in groups via their favorite plug-ins. Each individual output can be set to mono or stereo, and every instrument also has a Mute and Solo button. Mute will not just silence the sound; it will stop the sound being triggered. Solo will stop all other instruments from being triggered and only allow the selected sound(s) to play.

Control
Drumazon also has extensive MIDI control where MIDI notes can be used to trigger each individual sound. Alternatively, the internal sequencer can be used. This can be set to play using Drumazon's internal clock or set to synchronize perfectly to the host sequencer. Most of Drumazon's parameters can be automated within the host and also controlled using MIDI CC with an external controller. An easy-to-use MIDI Learn function allows reassignment of any of the parameters.

Internal Sequencer
Within Drumazon' internal sequencer, patterns are stored in 8 banks and each bank can store up to 12 patterns. Each pattern consists of 16 steps, and each pattern location has a MIDI note number assigned to it. The patterns can be edited traditionally using the step buttons or using the tap function.

Drumazon' internal sequencer has various modes of operation. In Chain Mode, ranges of patterns are selected from the internal banks and are played through in a circular fashion. Patterns can also be triggered freely by selecting the corresponding MIDI note (for example, from a MIDI controller keyboard), and external controllers can be used in any mode to provide full control over pattern playback.

A Randomizer function is also provided within the internal sequencer that can be used to make simple changes to a pattern or create a whole new one “ an ideal feature for when your creativity needs a boost. Randomizing can be applied to specific instruments and specific steps and the frequency of occurrence can also be adjusted to give you just the right amount.

Drumazon' files are stored in the XML format. This allows single patterns or whole banks to be exchanged between users easily. XML allows the files to be edited in a text editor, which is ideal if you want to post or share a pattern on a website - just post the text.

Presets
The settings for each instrument can be stored in it's own preset. Each instrument preset can be loaded in individually, which allows maximum flexibility when putting kits of instruments together. A dedicated Preset Manager is provided to help the user manage the sounds within their own unique library.
