Creation of drums through a mixture of samples and synthesis. Steinberg Backbone will create unique drum sounds through resynthesis. Steinberg has released the Steinberg Backbone percussion tool. According to the developers, the new plugin promises to simplify the process of creating unique layered drum sounds thanks to samples and resynthesis.
Working with a drum sound starts with importing a sample. After downloading the file, the user can perform spectral resynthesis of the original signal to create a new sound. The Backbone supports up to eight samples per sound, resulting in unusual and unique signals. Each layer can be processed in the effects and filters section.
With the help of the decomposition tool, users can combine separate parts of samples, independently control the attack and other parameters of each layer. Steinberg notes that Backbone does not limit the user in processing: you can adjust the filtering, height, decay time of the signal, as well as the features of its amplification. At the end of the signal flow are two effect stacks for post-processing the sample.
Steinberg Backbone offers a single window interface – all controls are collected in a single window, making it easy to work with. According to one of the creators of the product Florian Haack, the main challenge that the developers set for Backbone was the ease of creating and manipulating sound. It was this approach that led to the possibility of creating your own sounds based on combining samples and synthesis.
