Virtual Reality

IK Multimedia debuted the MODO DRUM, its first physical modeling drum virtual instrument. A sequel to IK’s MODO BASS software, MODO DRUM brings musicians of all styles and genres a new level of customization, detail and realism, stated the company. Using a combination of modal synthesis and advanced sampling, MODO DRUM offers 10 deeply customizable, virtual drum kits with real-time access to every parameter of each drum (kick, snares and toms), from size and tension, to shell profile and playing style, and more. Cymbals can also be tuned and damping adjusted to ensure realistic music tracks, the manufacturer noted. To further shape their sound, users can place their kit in different acoustic environments and take advantage of a full mixer with sends and buses, as well as 19 studio processors and effects from IK’s T-RackS and AmpliTube software titles to add the final polish to any kit.

Shekere It Up

Based on the Xequebalde, a Brazilian folk instrument, the Gon Bops Bucket Shekere is a hybrid of a metal bucket and a shekere. It can be played in hand like a traditional shekere or placed on a stand — a snare stand works perfectly — and played with brushes, stated the company. The Bucket Shekere is also the first Will Phillips signature instrument for Gon Bops. The Shekere is designed primarily to be super light for long-playing comfort, and it provides a rich, warm percussive attack. It’s crafted from lightweight aluminum, and its shell stands eight inches in height with a 12.5-inch opening.
