Key features

BMS (Beaotic Mapping Standard)

Note and control mapping are the same across all Beaotic kits, making it possible to exchange kits along the way without thinking about note and control data.

RANDOM SAMPLE SELECT
Every time a note is triggered, a random variation of the designated sample (different from the two previous) is triggered. This custom algorithm effectively eliminates the so-called machine gun effect.

VELOCITY ACCENT adds 5 additional Round Robin layers for velocities at or above 85. Velocities at or below 84 hold the 5 Round Robin layers without Accent. This makes it possible to mimic Accent on a per-note basis. The Accent slider controls the Volume on the accent layers.
VELOCITY TO START results in a sonic expression very different from Velocity to VCA (volume). It controls the start position within each sample via Velocity. The harder you hit the note, the closer you get to the actual start of the sample.
OSCILLATOR DRIFT is a function that adds a subtle pitch randomization, very similar to the pitch drift on old analog oscillators. By using Oscillator Drift you get a more organic pitch.
SNAPPY in the Snare Drums 2 group resembles that of a classic Roland drum machine, but we added Snappy Color and Snappy Decay for more flexibility and fun.
COLOR
The color parameter lets you select between sound-variations sampled through analog hardware filters, bit crushers, or pre-amps. In VolcaTron 55 you'll find the Color knob on SD2 Snappy, HH2 and FX1.
NOTE EDIT is where you make individual adjustments of Pitch, Level, Pan and Output of each note's sound. Pitch can be either absolute or relative to that of the group.
HIGH SAMPLE RATE
All samples in every Beaotic kit are recorded at 96 kHz. This gives each sound a more accurate amount of overtones, notably when pitched down. Of course it's all recorded in 24 bit with the shortest possible signal chain.
FREE UPDATES are included for the entire product lifetime. All accessories, templates and guides will be developed and made available on this webpage for free as well.
