DesignByPaul’s latest iOS (iPhone/iPad) AUv3 app SynthDrum Kick is all about designing kick sounds with a drum Synthesizer!

Hooray a new AUv3 app is out! DesignByPaul, known for many iOS Synthesizer apps has released today SynthDrum Kick, a new kick drum Synthesizer for iOS. The oscillator side is based on a sinusoid & 909 style clipped triangular. Additional pitch & amp envelopes offers you everything to design the perfect kick.

On top, it comes with a noise generator, an LFO that controls AM & FM as well as a parametric EQ x2 and soft clipper. I have not tested the app yet but if you search an AUv3 that can create nice kick sounds, this app could be something for you.


No more searching through samples, no more limited preset sounds, no more waiting. With SynthDrum Kick, you can synthesize the drum sounds you want in a lightweight​ fast package. Create multiple instances right inside your favorite AU host DAW (GarageBand, Cubase, AUM, BeatMaker 3 etc) for multiple percussion instruments. Whether you’re looking to create solid punchy house kicks, deep dark tuned trap bass kicks, or any other EDM genre, SynthDrum Kick has you covered.

SynthDrum Kick is a new, intuitive AUv3 AudioUnit plugin for iOS – Specially designed from the bottom up, to make synthesizing kick drums efficiently and quickly. SynthDrum Kick’s sounds are 100% synth-generated. Coupled with all the controls you need, being right at your fingertips, it’s easier than ever to get the kick sound you want. You get to work quickly and productively, without having to compromise and fall back on the same old pre-made kick samples.

Whilst some apps have irrelevant controls and workflows for synthesizing percussion, SynthDrum Kick has a versatile range of controls and a DSP engine specially designed for percussion synthesis. A user-friendly, adaptable AudioUnit that can get the beats you want, fast, from the moment you load it into your favorite DAW. More sonic versatility for your kicks whether on the move or in the studio, you can quickly create percussion that is unique and specific to your taste.
