Shou Drum - Interface

The Shou Drum features a classy, elegant interface offering key controls for tweaking the instrument’s tone, as well as some powerful sequencing features. Volume, tuning, mic mix, transposition, and both volume & pitch envelopes can be modified from the main page. The other tabs offer a powerful combination poly-arpeggiator, sequencer, and gate, plus a custom microtuning engine, and a four-slot FX rack.


The poly arp is quite powerful, offering many possible modes for performance and sequencing. With “Use MIDI Pitch”, the engine will arpeggiate held MIDI notes, using the Velocity & Length tables to modify each step. Alternatively, “Use MIDI Vel” will use input velocity instead. The “Gate” mode toggles a trance gate, useful for rhythmic pulses without retriggering samples. The Pitch table is used to create custom note sequences based on each played note.
