BitRate II & Monoboy

Reaktor Ensemble by Heavyocity

BitRate II & Monoboy

BitRate II

BitRate II uses multiple methods of retro digital synthesis and sampling to produce charismatic and nostalgic drum sounds. The included sound engines cover chipsounds, FM synthesis, lofi sampling, and glitchy circuit bending.

On top of these unique sound engines, BitRate II also offers a 5-track mixer and a master fx section that includes an analogue modelled EQ, bus compressor, and speaker simulator for added lo-fi effect.

The drums can be triggered via MIDI or from the internal sequencer. The sequencer provides two modulation sequences per drum, which can be routed to virtually any combination of sound parameters in any amount.


BitRate II also comes bundled with the MonoBoy instrument, a melodic counterpart for BitRate II. MonoBoy uses similar sound engines, but in an interface more suited to melodic playing.

MonoBoy's key features include 3 sound generator modes (a unique DM sampler, easy-to-use arpeggiator, and Voice Controls), 2 Modulation sequences, and a master FX section that includes the one-of-a-kind Bit Delay effect.

Icebreaker Audio

BitRate II & Monoboy were created by Icebreaker Audio, the brainchild of Adam Hanley, whose name appears in the credits of many high-profile Kontakt and Reaktor products, working on anything from African drums to additive synthesis. He is also responsible for the Kontakt scripting here at Heavyocity, pushing the platform to the limit in order to bring even the craziest of ideas to life.
