Ddrum4 users, I am proud to announce the birth of ddrum4ui!

The idea for this interface came to me after reading Ken Wright's enormous work over the past few years on ddrum4edit (see here), and its realization was made possible thanks to my friend Geoff Levner, a genius developer who discovered the world of electronic drums with this project, and who worked hard this last month outside of his office hours.
A huge thank you to both of them for their involvement and collaboration on this project.

What is ddrum4ui ?

Ddrum4ui is a sound management interface for the Clavia ddrum4 module, based on Ken Wright's ddrum4edit command line utility. It allows the management and modification of original sounds from Clavia sound banks, as well as the creation of new sounds from your own samples.
The interface is nice and clean, intuitive and simple to use.

What can you do with ddrum4ui?

OPEN factory sound files provided by Clavia.

CREATE your own sound files from scratch by importing audio samples.

DISPLAY the layers and the samples defined by the sound.

LISTEN TO layers and samples separately in real time.

MANAGE layer and sample settings: Add/remove, adjust pitch, volume and decay, define position and velocity parameters.

COPY layers and samples from one sound file to another, by simple drag and drop.

MANAGE variations and sequences.

LISTEN TO modified sounds at any time using the pad simulator.

How do I get ddrum4ui ?

The software is FREE and is available on MacOS (10.13 or later), and Windows (10 and 11).

Je peux aussi répondre en Français à toutes les questions relatives à ddrum4ui, et son utilisation avec le module ddrum 4.


Amazing work. I just yesterday was chatting to a guy on a Facebook group (possibly 65drums page) and he'd just come into possession of a Ddrum4 and was asking about cymbal sounds. It appears they were wiped from the module from previous owner. Anyway, I directed him here. It great to see there's life in that old dog yet, I had one for many years and it served me very well. It even appeared on a couple of international albums which I sessioned on in the 2000's, though wasn't given credit.

Thank you for your support, I confirm that the Ddrum4 brain is still alive ! :)
