Fanan Team have released Zoe 2 (successor of Zoe), slot driven drum sampler and drums groove arranger. It brings up some of the most desired features that modern production technology has to offer. Now, with some brand new features, better live control user’s both mp3 and wav. format support and faster workflow.
Zoe uses 10 (.wav, mp3) file sample slots to build 10 drum components drum-kits. According to this approach, every slot can be anything, from kicks to snares or cymbals or you name it. Each slot is triggered by its own unique midi note which noted on its slot button. For instance, slot 48 is triggered by note number 48 in the midi keyboard (c2). The samples menu is divided into 14 categories, including a wide range of drum-kit components types. Once you press on any type button, you get the list of the samples you can choose from. Zoe comes with 30 full built-in drum-kits.
The Morph System
Zoe is armed with brand new morphing system which can blend any 2 drum elements together (which can create tons of new fresh drum sounds). The morph system can also play with the blended element’s pitch and increase the invention of new drum sounds like never before.
Zoe has a built-in mixer that allows you to tweak any sample separately. You can use the EQ, change the pitch, add a random pitch manipulation to every sample, pan and or add saturation, phase effect, delay or some interesting coloring by using our Zelda filer.
The Kit Manager
Zoe loads drumkits extremely fast, only 0.6 sec for full loading. It can set “sample start and “sample end” points with midi assignable knobs and it also allows you to tweak the active keyboard’s octaves starting points and tweak or fire up the master effects by using macro knobs and buttons. Zoe uses 24 presets drumkit banks. Each preset represents a full drum-kit containing all the components and settings.
Zoe is not only a great sampler but also an arranger styles midi sequencer. It uses the arranger keyboards style sequencer method to run 8 simultaneous midi grooves per style that can be switched instantly with a midi keyboard. Each variation gets its own midi key number and the transitions are synced to the determined tempo. Zoe can also add an automatic cymbal crash on end points and use self or synced tempo. The midi sequence can be also sent out to the DAW through the midi channels and trigger other VSTi’s.
Special Channel’s Modulation Effects
Each channel in Zoe is armed with dedicated modulation effects which allow adding beautiful nuances and textures to each drum element separately. There is a yowling phaser effect, a delay and the new Zelda filter which can completely change the audio materials native character and morph it into a new interesting sound.
