Get comfortable and get creative – Discover what D16 Punchbox can do!
Most DAWs come with some very powerful tools for shaping and designing your Kick sound. However, few offer the complete control and flexibility of a dedicated Kick Drum designer. Punchbox by D16 aims to fill that niche in the production marketplace and does that extremely well with their new Punchbox Bass Drum Synthesizer tool.
In this comprehensive course, ADSR’s Stephen Ellestad walks you through all aspects of Punchbox operation, including detailed looks at the interface, each Generator and Effects module, FX routing and mixing and more.
You’ll pick up practical workflows for developing layered Kick sounds, working with the detailed Preset & Sample browser tagging system and MIDI controller mapping in both Logic and Live.
To round it out you’ll also learn how to use Punchbox to take over Kick duties for DAW drum tools, while looking at using Punchbox to supply the Kick sounds for Logic’s Drummer and Kontakt’s Studio Drummer.
