Multi-Particle Percussion Synthesizer

Originally inspired by audience applause, hip-hop samples, and classic
drum machines, Fracture is a multi-particle percussion synthesizer that
applies concepts from classic analogue clap circuits to granular
synthesis methods.

It all starts from proprietary micro-samples we recorded specifically
for this purpose and ends with an engine built to suit these samples.
Unlike our other percussion module, the Chimera which uses impulse
rich samples as it’s tonal center, Fracture uses single impulse samples
like Claps, Snaps, Ping Pong Balls, Opening a beer can, and many more.
It then plays a group of similar samples back in a psuedo random order
for unique hits. Density, Decay, and Tail affect tone and how “tight”
your virtual clappers are to playing together.

Our goal was to design a clap percussion module covering the range
from classic drum machine claps all the way to full audience applause.
We ended up with a module that covers a huge range of timbres beyond
claps. We hope this engine provides you with the tools to intuitively
create wild percussion sounds that bring your system to life in a new
way.
