Virtual drummer that improvise on your patterns.
Version: 3.6.1Archibald is a virtual drummer which improvises on your patterns. As you're building your rythm in the step by step sequencer, you determine its margin of interpretation from 0 to 100%. It gives a better sound (which drummer would play two consecutive eighth notes making exactly the same shade and attack ?).

The power of interpretation of this machine may surprise you... Archibald is built with a 44,1 khz sampler with very realistics sounds.
The second sequencer, driving the first, allows to program sequences based on several bars.
From Version 2.1 onward, Archibald may interface with your sequencer via Rewire technology, allowing you to mix the 7 individual outputs from within your favourite sequencing software. You may also export your work as audio, in stereo or multi-channel mode.
Archibald plays all binary and ternary meters from 2 to 8 beats per bar. Thanks to adjustable delays per note, you can create unusual rhythmic patterns, or obtain a specific humanized 'groove'.
A 44,1 khz sampler is incorporated in Archibald, with 192 polyphony's voices. Thanks to that, you get a more realistic sound on long resonance instruments, such as cymbals and toms. You get also snare drum's rollings on fast tempos.
The sound bank is a 45 mo file, reaching 40 samples an instrument (for snare drum p.ex.). So you come more close to sound diversity of real instruments.Whenever you want, have a look at CPU utilization.
Archibald plays every binary or ternary bars from 2 to 8 beats. Thanks to adjustable delays per note, create peculiar rythmics or obtain a specific and humanized "groove".
You have the possibility to choose between a stereo output or a multi channels output. The stereo output includes a mixing window. The multi channels output offers a 7 voices mix outside Archibald, thanks to hardware or software device; as if you have placed 7 microphones around a real drum kit.
