If you've played with iZotope's BreakTweaker, it's hard to not be impressed with the abilities of this plug-in. However if you've played thru the presets, you'll find 92 mostly EDM presets and a confusing layout of the 12 patterns in each preset. When I purchased this on the day it came out, I immediately relealized this as being a plug-in that desperately needed a Power Pack!
I'm blown away with the emails from happy MegaMacho drums customers. People are loving the qualtiy and uniqeness of the samples so it made perfect sense to create a unqiue version of MegaMacho Drums tailored for BreakTweaker. This Power Pack has 124 grooves in 11+ Genres and 910 Sound Generator presets. Factory voicing had only 92 Presets in 5 EDM genres and a paultry 69 sound generator presets... To make this truly unique, I've included 1,061 Drum Samples from MegaMacho Drums. The huge memory "Shadow Kits" and some drum samples are not included. These are only availble in the Kontakt 5 or WAV versions of MegaMacho Drums.
For the first time ever, I hired 4 other programmers to work with me on this project. Ryeland Allison, Toby Pitman, Seth Norman and Carl Helder worked with me to create the Patterns. Their resumes of clients they have worked with is impressive and inspiring (Hanz Zimmer, Sir Paul McCartney, James Newton Howard, TOOL, James Newton Howard, Triage, BT and many many more). The end results is a truly inspiring library of grooves exclusive to BreakTweaker that use MegaMacho Drum Samples, Factory samples and in some cases the Expansion sample libraries that you can purchase from iZotope (highly recommended).
The majority of these 124 presets have 10 patterns and follow identical note layout standards. Patterns 1-3 are the groove (pattern 2 ALWAYS has no pitch and ready for writing music in ANY key). Patterns 4 - 6 are fills. Patterns 7 - 9 are No Kick, No Snare and No Kick or Snare patterns. Pattern #10 is generally a single snare hit so that you can do simpler drum fills. This makes working with these presets a lot of fun because you know what to expect when you play a note instead of having to learn what groove each pattern is before starting to write music. If you have worked with the factory voicing, you totally know what we're talking about.
Watch the videos, listen to the music demos. This is a very special labor of love to make BreakTweaker far more potent and usable than how it comes from the factory.
NOTE: Make sure you have the additional 1.5Gb FACTORY SAMPLE CONTENT installed or you will get "Missing Samples" messages! Check your BreakTweaker Library/Samples - get information on the folder size. If it's 5.2 megabytes, then you're missing 1.5 GIGABYTES of factory content!
NOTE #2: 16 of these 124 Presets use samples from the Cinematic Textures and Vintage Machines EXPANSION libraries you can buy from iZotope for BreakTweaker. These Presets won't load without these libraries. More Info Here.
