Yumbu (successor of Booboom) is slot driven drum sampler. It based on our Boo Boom sampler and shares many components and structures with it, but on the other hand, it also brings up lightning speed drum-kits loading and fast one stage control, fitted for live usage. Now, with better control, both mp3 and wav. format support, faster workflow and only 0.5 sec. loading times for new kit, Yumbu is one of the quickest drum samplers in the markets.
Yumbu uses 10 (.wav, mp3) file sample slots to build 10 drum components drum-kits. According to this approach, every slot can be anything, from kicks to snares or cymbals or you name it. Each slot is triggered by its own unique midi note which noted on its slot button. For instance, slot 48 is triggered by note number 48 in the midi keyboard (c2). The samples menu is divided into 14 categories, including a wide range of drum-kit components types. Each type button (kicks, snares, claps, etc.) is directing to it’s own sample library folder which located at “C:\Users\yourname\Documents\Fananteam\Yumbu\USER”. Once you press on any type button, you get the list of the samples you can choose from. Each sample slot has also a room for 150 user’s imported samples which can be added manually to the “user” folder. Yumbu comes with 30 full drum-kits to start with.
Yumbu has a built-in mixer that allows you to tweak any sample separately. You can use the EQ, change the pitch, add a random pitch manipulation to every sample, pan and you can use our pitch based round robin effect which has a wide control ability on the final sound. The mixer is also armed with 3 master effects (compressor, reverb, delay) with a brand new unique effect called “F.R” which allows full scale frequency control over the wet signal. You can use the effect by sending a fx amount from the “master fx” knob on every channel or you can override the per cell sending and just send them directly to the master effect.
The kit manager
Yumbu loads drumkits extremely fast, only 0.5 sec for full loading, and uses a “one button press” preset manager which allows a super-fast presets switching by midi assignable buttons. It can set “sample start and “sample end” points with midi assignable knobs and it also allows you to tweak the active keyboard’s octaves starting points. Yumbu uses 24 presets drumkit banks. Each preset represents a full drumkit containing all the components and settings.
Special channel’s modulation effects
Each channel in Yumbu is armed with dedicated modulation effects which allow adding beautiful nuances and textures to each drum element separately. There is a yowling phaser effect, a delay and the new Zelda filter which can completely change the audio materials native character and morph it into a new interesting sound
