GOTHIC INSTRUMENTS Dronar modules £59.95 EACH

The Dronar concept is like a huge software modular synth library, with added menace.Andy Jones loads up two more modules from the dark side…

Dronar’s concept is simple and quite unique. It uses a modular approach with individual software titles that concentrate on specific sonic areas, and all of these are pretty competitively priced (usually around £60 each). You simply choose modules – as and when they are released – to create your modular Dronar collection. I looked at the first instalment, Hybrid, a couple of years back and now have the most recent two chapters in to review.

I didn’t initially think I was the right person to test the first of these, as it’s got the word ‘brass’ in the title and I’ve had a long battle with technology trying to recreate brass sounds since my first synth’s pathetic attempts back in the 1980s. However, the Dronar concept is not about recreation – it’s about manipulation and atmosphere. Hybrid, for example, was full of menace and it was dead easy to create loads more with dramatic on-screen controls.

About MusicTech

Though it was only a few issues ago that we contemplated the future of music, we came to the realisation that the future is now! With more effects at our disposal than ever before, we tour the modern arsenal of plug-in effects, tools and software that you might not even realise existed! Elsewhere, we speak to the legendary DJ Jazzy Jeff about his production and DJing ethos, and join Detroit-based artist Klayton, whose love of 80s electronic and metal bands has borne many fruitful projects, not to mention an amazing studio. We put Hans Zimmer Strings to the test, as well as a slew of new pieces of gear and software in our expanded reviews section. Additionally, there’s 4 new tutorials for Live, Logic, Cubase and Pro Tools, brand-new tips, retrospectives and our Essential Guide series draws to a close with a 101 to recording. We hope you enjoy the issue!
