Atmegadrum software released today
The Atmegadrum software is now available from the Soulsby Synths website. It turns the Atmegatron into a 16-part 16-step drum machine. It also features a global pitch LFO and individual instrument volumes and delay effects.
The default sample rate is a crunchy sounding 8kHz and this can be tweaked. Check out this YouTube video to hear it in action. There’s an audio demo track on Soundcloud too.
In the near future there will be software to allow users to upload their own drum samples to the Atmegadrum.

If you’ve still not got an Atmegatron and want to know more about it, be sure to check out some of these reviews:
- Sound On Sound (June). “Paul Soulsby’s debut product is a small synth of violently unrestrained character.”
- Future Music (June). “The unit is certainly fun to use and sounds as gnarly and unrefined as you would expect.”
- Palm Sounds. An audio interview with Paul Soulsby and demonstration video.
- Sounds and Gear. A highly in-depth video review.
