Two weeks ago, I reviewed UVI’s Beat Anthology 2 sample library and found that it’s an excellent collection of analog and virtual drum machines. One of my criticism was that the build-in sequencer is somewhat too simple and has no deep creative features. If you look at the side of the Kontakt 5 products, there is now a similar product from the company Sample Magic available but with a more interesting sequencer but with a less large library.

Sample Magic launched today Klip, a new powerful drum machine instrument  for the Kontakt 5 Player that comes with over 4000+ samples and a very creative 16×32 parameter sequencer. A unique FX matrix allows musicians / sound designers independent manipulation of up to 16 parameters per pads across 32 steps. A very powerful instrument with an excellent scripted Kontakt 5 engine that gives musicians a perfect tool for designing complex drum machine rhythms.

Klip is a powerful instrument and drum machine that pushes the threshold of electronic music production, utilising an expansive parameter editing matrix and comprehensive mixer functionality. Mash loops, re-mould and merge beats, mangle rhythms, programme in a completely unique fashion – all in real time – tempo, key and beat synced to your host DAW.

Splice loop segments, add convolution reverb, delay, bit crusher, filters and tape warmth emulation. Mix in Klip’s 8 channel mixer with EQ, compression, distortion, transient designers, buss limiter and much more.
