Rack Extension Features:

Drum Channel section
Select, mute, isolate, route and set volumes for the drum channels.

Patch Selector
Browsing, loading and saving patches is done in the same way as with any other internal Reason device.

Sample Playback section
The Sample Playback section contains all sample related controls and parameters for the currently selected Drum Channel. The currently selected Drum Channel is indicated by the lit Drum Channel selection button.

The EQ section features a Hi Cut (Lowpass) and a Lo Cut (Highpass) filter. Perfect for removing any rumble (Lo Cut) and/or hiss (Hi Cut), for example.

Activate and select the desired Insert Effect for the selected Drum Channel.

Drum Channel mixer controls
To the right of the Sample Playback Insert FX sections is a vertical 'channel strip' with controls for the currently selected Drum Channel.

Send Effects and Compressor section
The four global effects - Chop, Delay, Reverb and Compressor - work as Send Effects for the respective Drum Channels. All Send Effects can be used by all Drum Channels simultaneously, and all effects are active simultaneously.

Mixer Section
In the Mixer section you set the effect return levels of the send effects, as well as the Compressor output level, the Clean bus level, and the Master Volume.

Modulation Matrix section
Route the global LFO1 and LFO2, plus three selectable modulation Sources, to selectable modulation Destinations. This creates a very flexible routing system that complements the 'pre-wired' routing in Umpf Club Drums.
