528 Beats

Kickstart your inspiration with 527 beats that combine almost all genres of modern music production: urban grooves; phat cinematic booms and overkills; hybrid FX layers, and odd pop beats. And, of course: each beat comes with an individually adjusted "shape" chain.

350 Sounds

We went down the rabbit hole, looking for unique sounds!
Rytmik 2 contains a dynamic range from small dings and dongs to massive booms, textures from organic to analogue to heavily processed electronics, collected from field recordings, drum machines, modular systems and every size and shape of real drums and percussion we could find.

Shape your FX Chain in Real-Time

This is an entirely new possibility to change any beat in real-time to create almost inexhaustibly vartiations - completely free programmable. Rytmik 2 offers 13 different FX options you can use to create your own custom chain. It ranges from filters to volume tools, which are assignable to each slot, resulting in a clever variation tool.

Random Creation

With the Randomization feature, Rytmik 2 empowers you to effortlessly create a track/slot with unique sound, velocity, effect settings, etc. You can customize each element to your liking, ensuring that the result is both suitable for your music and compelling.

Export Midi to DAW

Now it is possible to drag your self-made beat completely into your DAW to adapt it from there to your arrangement.

Smart Sequencer

We have reduced the number of tracks to 14. This is extensive but not too complex. And each of the 14 tracks is equipped with lots of tools and FX, which are even dynamically programmable across all steps.
Kontakt Player Ready

Rytmik 2 is also available for Kontakt Player. So you don't need to own a full Kontakt version and still can enjoy all the benefits of the NKS capabilities of all NI hardware, for example, Maschine or Komplete Kontrol.

Super Easy

We've turned over every single stone to perfect the workflow and intuitive operation. In the process, we've managed to keep everything extraordinarily minimal and uncluttered - and it doesn't look bad at all.

Finding your Beat

You can filter presets and quickly find suitable beats by using category tags. And if you get stuck, just have Rytmik2 surprise you by suggesting a random beat using the Preset Dice Feature.

No Audio Loops

Rytmik 2 does not play audio files!
All beats are generated in real time by a programmable 14-track sequencer. Change the tempo without losing quality, enjoy the organic variations created by round robins and velocity layers, and change sounds and their rhythms at will.

Mix Up Tracks

Each individual track has its own button with which it can be triggered. So every beat and countless variations can be played manually.

And many little things

> Live recording while playing the beat.
> Trigger the instruments or loops individually with the dedicated keys
> Quickly mute instruments or control FX via the mod wheel.
> Shift individual tracks as well as beats forward or backwards.
> Separate delay and reverb send and master returns.
