Motto Akemie:
FM Drum Synth and Step Sequencer


‘Motto Akemie’ is a 6 Voice FM drum synth and step sequencer for your DAW.

Each voice is inspired by our renowned ‘Akemie’s Taiko‘ eurorack module featuring similar controls and playful FM sounds from pure sinusoidal oscillations to mega clonks to chaotic self-feedbacking enveloped noise.

The built in multitrack step sequencer allows for quick polyrhythmic pattern creation with step modulation of all parameters, randomisation and Pam style scaling across storable pattern banks and presets.

Voices can also be played chromatically and controlled via MIDI with support for MTS-ESP microtuning.

Motto Akemie is available for purchase now for macOS and Windows. Purchase to get emailed a license key. Downloads run fully functional for 7 days before requiring a license key.
