Softube’s Heartbeat captures the sound and experience of early 80s drum synthesizers, and Sami Rabia’s video tutorial series teaches you how to use it to create your own modern masterpieces!
Sami begins with a GUI overview, showing you how the plug-in is laid out, then he dives into the kick drum section, explaining all the simple, but powerful tone shaping parameters. Next, he explores the Snare & Clap module, Hi-Hats Module, Percussion Module, and Cymbals Module.
With the modules covered, Sami demonstrates how to use the mixer, including the multi-output option, as well as how you can map velocity to different elements of Heartbeat.
After that, Sami looks at the Effects section, revealing the built-in reverb, delay, and compressor for even more sound sculpting, and then explains how to use the Auto-Layer machine, which is capable of both simple sequencing and extreme chaos.
Finally, Sami delves into sound design with Heartbeat, showing you how to design a vintage drum sound, and how to build an EDM-style kick.

Sami is a wonderful tutor, and does a great job explaining each section of Heartbeat, and then applies it to some modern sound design techniques.

The video explains all parameters of the plugin. What i miss in this video is how you do the workflow with the DAW. I own the plugin but it is always complicated for me to work with it – how to transfer the sound/midi/audio to Ableton inside of arrangement.
