Kraken is a physical modeling snare drum module for eurorack modular synthesizers.
No samples, 100% digital synthesis with the ability to make realistic snare drums of all
sizes, shapes, materials, and colors. Similar to Crucible, Kraken uses a network of
classic synthesis blocks like delay, digital filters, and noise to create a very unique
“Crack-in” to the snare drum sound you’re into most by adjusting parameters that
corelate to physical drum properties such as shell type and size, head tightness,
amount of overtone, and how tight and bright the snares sound.
You like snare samples? Great! Although Kraken does not use any recordings to
generate sound, you can get a perfectly repeatable snare sound, similar to a sampler by
using digital noise to generate the sound of the “snares”. Dial in the decay to cut the
sound short, and use different gate lengths to mimic “gate” mode style sounds in
