DM-307’s extensive content is complemented by an intuitive user interface featuring the all-new Grid™
. The Grid™ is an advanced 5 voice drum machine with 8 programmable patterns, allowing you to build grooves by simply clicking on a step.
Expand your beat creation by stacking 5 grid presets in a performance multi and gain unprecedented control over each part with individual FX, modulators and envelopes.
Load one of the 180+ Kit Groove presets or 300 Performance Multis to get a true sense of the power of the Grid, or create your own complex grooves from the thousands of sounds found in the Kits and Multis.
Master Your Beats
DM-307’s interface was designed for quick and simple groove creation. You can easily create a beat, alter the envelope, and drastically affect the tone of the sounds.
Similar to Damage and AEON, there are 3 levels of effects provided in the instrument. Apply effects globally with the Master effects, tweak individual sounds with the ADSR, filter, EQ, and tune, or engage the signature Advanced Trigger FX™
to quickly modulate and alter the sound.
Tempo sync is automatic, and exporting a loop's MIDI data to your sequencer is simply drag-and-drop. Tweak your grooves quickly with the integrated keyswitches for effects and stutters, and create instant impacts with the unique 'Analog Hits'.
The sound of DM-307 comes from loops, kits, effects, and multis, all powered by the Kontakt 5 Player Engine. All loops and kits are designed for seamless layering and maximum flexibility, and are loosely classified into 5 different styles.
DM-307 provides a host of loop menus and single loop presets. Stocked with over 1200 loops in 5 contemporary styles. , you can quickly mix and match kicks, snares, hits, and other elements to build complex layered rhythms and grooves.
The Loop Menus are intelligently mapped, and formatted into “breakout” presets, allowing you to perform the full loop in a single key, or mix and match the individual layers of different loops, all in one preset. Single Loop presets provide level, pan, and tuning for each slice, and allows you to recompose via midi drag-and-drop.
DM-307 offers more than 80 different kits, built from nearly 2,000 unique sounds. These kits combine organic drums with processed classic drum machines and aggressive modular synth sounds to create a one-of-a-kind palette of genre-defying percussion.
The signature ‘Analog Hits’ and ‘Tempo Synced Risers’ are perfect for adding impact and emotion to any track.
DM-307 offers 3 different levels of effects - apply effects globally with the Master FX (Reverb, Delay, Distortion, Modulation, Twist and Punish), Trigger Performance Effects, or tweak individual sounds.
The Advanced Trigger FX (pictured here) are switchable real-time effects with incredible scope for intuitive and creative sound tweaking. Control the speed at which the effect is engaged and disengaged, or turn on the sequence button, and modulate the effect changes with a 32 step sequencer.
The signature Punish and Twist knobs preside over everything, adding aggressive drive and character to your beats.
