BitRate II & Monoboy: $49 $24.50


Conceived from Adam Hanley—the fascinating mind behind Icebreaker Audio—the BitRate II & MonoBoy VST taps into chiptune music, vintage digital electronics, and circuit bending. This retro drum machine VST brings these beloved sounds to life as both a drum synth and its melodic counterpart.


BitRate II uses multiple methods of retro digital synthesis and sampling in this retro drum machine VST to produce charismatic and nostalgic drum sounds. The sound engines in this chiptune VST include chip sounds, FM synthesis, lo-fi sampling, and glitchy circuit bending. For more epic drum beats, check out our Damage Drum Kit.


Also included is MonoBoy, BitRate II's melodic counterpart. MonoBoy uses similar sound engines but in an interface more suited to melodic play. Its key features include three sound generator modes (a unique DM sampler, easy-to-use arpeggiator, and voice controls), and a master FX section that includes the one-of-a-kind Bit Delay effect.


BitRate II & Monoboy were created by Icebreaker Audio, the brainchild of Adam Hanley, whose name appears in the credits of many high-profile Kontakt and Reaktor products. He is also responsible for the Kontakt scripting here at Heavyocity, pushing the limits of the platform to bring even our craziest ideas to life.
