What is Fractal Bits

Fractal Bits is a drum synth with over four billion unique sounds created by fractal algorithms. Each set of 12 drums corresponds to a code of 8 characters (you can save/copy/paste it as plain text).

  • search for new sounds with three buttons: next random set (>>>), edit code, previous set (<<<);
  • three types of keyboards for live drumming: on-screen buttons, PC keyboard, MIDI input;
  • several processing parameters + control via MIDI;
  • real-time audio recording to WAV (32-bit);
  • export to: WAV (one file or a set), SunVox (samples + effects in one file), text clipboard;
  • the LCK button freezes individual drums - they will not change during the search for new sets;
  • iOS: Audio Unit Extension (AUv3), Audiobus, Wi-Fi export/import.
Double clicking on a parameter opens a window for setting the exact value.

If you enable the Hold option, the notes will play endlessly, without reacting to key release (noteOff) events; turning the note on again works like turning it off; there are two ways to enable this option:
1) using the Hold parameter in the "MIDI Mapping" window;
2) by pressing the HOLD button, which appears in place of LCK while playing the musical keyboard: press HOLD, release the desired notes - then the released notes will continue to play.
