I'm guessing similar techniques were used through the late-60's and 70's to produce that kind of "dead", muffled drum sound Ringo popularized. Maybe MODO Drum can offer those options in a future update?


I came here to suggest this, tea-towels and wallets!
Also that damped Steely Dan sound.

I believe this one wouldn't be too complex to implement:

===> Ability to create/edit a kit from zero. In other words, when you edit a drum kit, some elements/instruments can't be disabled and one of the reasons I believe it would be nice to disable unused items is because when I use multi-out to my daw, all of them are recognized by the daw. (I'm using Bitwig). Most of the time my drum set is basically: kick, snare, hihat & a crash cymbal.

Thirding this. It's pretty much a staple for the music I make and has a ton of crossover appeal currently. A dampened kit with as little reverb as possible (another request of mine) is the swiss army knife for most producers these days. Much easier to slot into a mix as a comping instrument than standard rock drums, but can also hold their own as the center of attention. Plus they just sound cool.

Another point on the bezier velocity curve would be mighty useful too :)

Otherwise it's awesome.

Would like a hand drum or conga set.
Also, expansion packs for drum sets and MIDI tracks.

Love MODO Drums, btw - it's my go-to drum plugin 80% of the time.

Hi Guys,

I have been exploring MODO drums for about a month or so, and I have been liking what I have heard so far. I would however like to make one suggestion to improve things (in my opinion).

Would it be possible to have more degrees of openness in the hi-hat (I realize this would require more samples). What I have seen so far are 3 articulations - closed, open and more open. If there were at least 6 variations or degrees of openness or apertures (from the manual) for each Shank and Tip it would allow for a more natural sound when playing a groove. Such as subtly changing the degree of openness going from a verse into a chorus or hitting the hi-hat and opening it at the same time then closing it for those classic Hi-hat barks.

Thank you
Dan

Note there are more than three samples there. But this thread will be relayed to the devs.

Note that you can get very realistic hihats with MODO DRUM like Dancetech does here:

1. Allow a second snare to be added to the kit
2. Allow tuning of the resonance head of the snare
3. Turn snare strip on and off via CC with associated sounds
4. More articulations for cymbals and hi-hats bell, bow etc
5. Allow adjustable volume per articulation. Side stick and rim shot on snare are too fare apart in volume
6. Damping options such as cloth, gel, tape and wallet for the classic Motown sound
7. Wider range of kits and elements

I use this kind of vst as a composing tool i whish i could import my own or third party MIDI grooves



Definitely would like to see MIDI Import and better MIDI file organization. Maybe I'm just used to EZD2, but their structure does work well.

And damping would be a plus.

New to MODO Drums myself. Have TD-27KV Roland E-Drum kit. The couple things that my kit has that MODO drums does not appear to support:

1. My snare has two CC - MODO only supports 1
2. My Ride has CC - But MODO doesn’t not support ride
3. Each of my regular Cymbals (2 of them) have two different zones, but the cymbals in MODO only allow for one - so I have to map them to two separate cymbals which is kind of strange.

It would be nice to have the drum in an interactable 3D space with the ability to add simulated microphones wherever you want on the kit. This feature could replace the perspective function and give more control to the user

On the mixer page for the slider the moves from one end of the mixer to the other to be wider and more obvious.
