The Best Choice for Designing Top-Quality & Dancefloor-Crushing Kicks

The Kick Sound You've Been Looking For

The best choice for designing top-quality & dancefloor-crushing kicks.

PunchBOX is a virtual instrument designed for creating high-quality kick drum sounds. An equally vast and exquisite factory content delivered by industry-standard sound designers Sounds of Revolution and CFA-Sound gets you started in no time.

Synthesis & Sampling Shaking Hands in One Plugin

PunchBOX easily brings together the best of the two worlds. The expressiveness of synthesized sounds next to the richness and complexity of samples end up delivering top-notch, never-heard and dancefloor-crushing kick sound.

Each of the onboard samples is a little diamond in itself, crafted with professional experience, precious pieces of studio equipment, top-shelf instruments and vintage analog gear. The kick sound synthesizers, originating from highly acclaimed D16 emulations of classic Roland drum machines, were taken to the next level and customized to perfectly fit the purpose of PunchBOX.

The very heart of PunchBOX is comprised of four sound generators, each of them standing for a key component of the final majestic kick sound. Factory settings were created to allow influencing the sound in a unique, intuitive and inspiring way.

Vast Quality Factory Content

The best sound designers out there prepared an arsenal of 1100 samples and 800 presets suitable for pretty much all contemporary subgenres of electronic music. It's never been easier to keep up or even exceed the most recent trends in music production and sound quality standard. Organized using the renowned D16 tagging system makes browsing for the right (base) sound easy, efficient and smooth. 

An Effect Rack that Get's Your Kicks

Fulfilling your every need when it comes to taking a kick sound to the next level drove the PunchBOX dev team to create an effect rack with (almost) unlimited power. Switching effect order by simple drag 'n' drop? Varying effect amounts with a simple click? Feeding an effect with only a small proportion of sound generator X? It's all in there! The greatest kick sound mangling tools at hand.

Intuitive & Inspiring Workflow

The PunchBOX dev team worked hard to offer you an interface that understands your needs. You'll immediately feel like working with Lego and see how simple it is to just activate/deactivate/level the building blocks of a kick sound – and all of that only a mouse click, wheel turn or drag 'n' drop away. Not feeling creative today? Not a problem, just browse through the perfectly tagged presets or use the random sound generator!  This is an interface that understands your needs. Get creative in a jiffy!
