Mutable Instruments’ Peaks is a small but versatile Eurorack module that features two channels of drum synthesizers for creating fantastic 808-style kick and snare drum sounds. The Dead Man’s Catch alternative firmware adds a FM drum synthesis mode capable of creating more intersting percussive and melodic sounds. This pack features 81 sounds (some dry, many running through filters) including:
- 26 snares
- 15 kick drums (9 of them tuned to C)
- 16 melodic sounds (tuned to C)
- 12 high hats
- 4 percussion sounds
- 8 toms (two different sets, tuned low to high: A, D, F, A)
These are 44.1kHz 16 bit mono WAV files, perfect for dropping into most samplers.
About the demo track
This demo track was put together in Ableton Live with a drum rack and a few instances of Sampler & Simpler (for the melodic parts) loaded with samples from the pack. There is a lot of filtering of samples, chorus/flanger/reverb applied to some of the melodic sounds, and some compression/EQ on everything. Everything you hear is from the sample pack.
