Classic Drum Synthesis

NOTE: This product requires that you have an iLok account for authorization, although it does not require a physical iLok key. Please call your Sweetwater Sales Engineer if you have questions.

Softube Heartbeat delivers gives you classic drum synthesis in a cool software drum synth with a retro sonic character all its own. You get a killer effects section, as well as an innovative Auto Layer Machine which can launch your beats into the stratosphere. Drawing its inspiration from the best drum synths of the 1980s, Heartbeat is the drum synth you've been wanting all along: meticulously modeled analog fused with futuristic features and massive flexibility. It doesn't emulate any existing drum machine; its sound generates from Softube's own synthesis engine, augmented by select waveforms. Try it - you'll be hooked. In a Heartbeat.

Auto Layer Machine

Heartbeat's Auto Layer Machine gives you four channels that can each be used to layer sounds or to trigger an event chain. Use it to create new sonic textures or to build automatic fill patterns in up to four steps. Sound too rigid? Move the Chaos sliders to the right to throw in randomness, from subtle groove shifts to full-on trigger-riot pandemonium. At Sweetwater, we're having a creative blast with Softube Heartbeat. You will, too.

Softube Heartbeat Features at a Glance:
  • Eight channels of drum sounds, mostly based on modeled analog synthesis
  • Mixer with volume, EQ, effect sends and panning for each channel
  • Four channel Auto Layer Machine for layering sounds or triggering beat patterns
  • Chaos slider adds randomness to the behavior of Auto Layer Machine
  • Adapted versions of TSAR-1 Reverb and Valley People Dyna-mite included
  • Includes Filter Echo and Output Saturation
Get your groove on with Softube Heartbeat!
