Overview

A Sampling & Synthesis Handshake

PunchBox is the best of both worlds: expressive synthesized sounds fused with the richness and complexity of real samples bring you top-notch, unheard-of kick sounds that set themselves apart.

Each included sample is its own little masterpiece, crafted with professional experience using top-shelf instruments through the best vintage studio analog gear. The kick sound synthesizers, originating from our highly acclaimed emulations of the classic Roland drum machines, were taken to the next level and customized to perfectly fit the purpose of PunchBox.

At the heart of PunchBox is four sound generators, each a key component of your final kick sound. Factory settings were created as a jumping-off point to get started in a unique, intuitive and inspiring way.

Intuitive & inspiring workflow

The PunchBOX dev team worked hard to offer you an interface that understands your needs – and not the usual other way round. You'll immediate feel like working with Lego and see how simple it is to just activate/deactivate/level the building blocks of a kick sound – and all of that only a mouse click, wheel turn or drag'n'drop away. Not feeling creative today? Not a problem, just browse through the perfectly tagged presets or use the random sound generator!

Vast quality factory content

The best sound designers out there prepared an arsenal of 1100 samples and 800 presets suitable for pretty much all contemporary subgenres of electronic music. It's never been easier to keep up or even exceed the most recent trends in music production and sound quality standard. Organized using the reknowned D16 tagging system makes browsing for the right (base) sound easy, efficient and smooth.
