Originally inspired by audience applause, hip-hop samples, and classic drum machines, Fracture is a multi-particle percussion synthesizer that applies concepts from classic analogue clap circuits to granular synthesis methods.
It all starts from proprietary micro-samples recorded specifically for this purpose and ends with an engine built to suit these samples. Unlike WMD's other granular percussion module - the Chimera - which uses impulse rich samples as it’s tonal center, Fracture uses single impulse samples like Claps, Snaps, Ping Pong Balls, Opening a beer can, and many more. It then plays a group of similar samples back in a psuedo random order for unique hits. Density, Decay, and Tail affect tone and how “tight” your virtual clappers are playing together.
Fracture is essentially a clap percussion module covering the range from classic drum machine claps all the way to full audience applause and covers a huge range of timbres beyond claps.
