Snare Factory 2 – a plug-in dedicated to creating great snare sounds.

Snare is probably the most distinctive of drum sounds – so you’ll want these to be yours and yours alone. Snare Factory, like all the other Factory 2 products is designed to give you unique and usable drum sounds easily and quickly, and to offer you a range of options to tweak and sculpt your drum sound to be exactly the sound you want. Or use the intelligent randomisation system to generate hundreds or thousands of options and save all the ones you like. It’s about variety, capability AND workflow.

Snare Factory 2 is a sample based instrument – it uses three layers – in each layer you can select any of the 1,040 meticulously sampled different snare drums (way more than any other Snare Drum module we know of), so the combinations of sounds is huge. We’ve sampled a wide range of analog drum kits, iconic drum machines and some obscure drum machines too. Each layer then has a range of modules to affect the sound, a multi-mode filter, an FM processor, a wave-shaper, reverb, delay and a compressor. Finally in the sound shaping area there are a set of modulators, for velocity, pitch and filter frequency. All this gives you complete flexibility in getting the sound you are looking for.

There’s an intelligent randomisation system for the whole instrument – and another for each voice. So getting to new, interesting and useful sounds is enjoyable and really quick.

Every drum sound you use in Snare Factory 2 comes in three different snapshots – a powerful facility that gives you three different snare sounds available at the same time. Snapshots are like parameter locks on steroids, you can have two snapshots that vary by just one effect parameter, say filter frequency, or that vary every single parameter – so snapshots can go from subtly different sounds to wildly different sounds – your choice. Like the randomisation system there’s a snapshot generator function to quickly and easily generate snapshot variations.

Finally there’s a master volume control and our Infinite Round Robin Engine (IRRE) which modifies the sound on every incoming note, your not stuck with 5, 10 or even 20 round robins Рthis system produces millions of subtly different sounds Рslightly changed for every note played. How different each hit sounds is up to you.

So stand out from the crowd. Get rid of the frustration searching for drum sounds then layering and tweaking to get anywhere near what you are after – in your hands Snare Factory 2 will produce the sounds you need and that are like no others.

Buy Snare Factory 2 and we will send you an authorisation code (one time entry – no calling home, no internet required, use on any machine you own) that will activate the demo that you can download above.
