LinPlug's RM IV features 18 velocity sensitive Drum Pads that can be used to trigger any of 11 different Audio Generator Modules. The instrument features a modular design that currently includes 10 percussion synthesis algorithms, as well as a percussion sampler. The 10 Synthesis modules are able to create sounds ranging from classic analog drum sounds to the cutting edge sounds of contemporary music.
The Sampler module provides single-sample, multi-sample, velocity-layer and velocity-crossfade support, at up to 32-bit resolution. The instrument also includes an AHDSR-controlled multi-mode filter, a compressor designed specifically for percussion sounds, a "Humanizer," and a 6 x 6 Modulation Matrix.
The RM IV comes with the Manytone Acoustic Drums series, a set of 8 multisampled, 24-bit acoustic drum and percussion kits. Several independent sound designers have also contributed additional kits so that altogether, the RM IV comes with over 170 high quality synthesized and sampled kits, comprising more than 2500 individual drum sounds (In excess of 1 Gigabyte of Samples). In addition, the RM IV has a time-saving "preview in context" feature that enables individual samples and even whole kits to be browsed as the instrument plays back a sequence. The RM IV is fully compatible with RM2, RM III, LM4 and CM-505 kit formats, and can load samples in both WAV and AIFF format.
