What is STOMPER Ultra++?

STOMPER Ultra++ is a Microsoft Windows (click here if you have a Macintosh) software synthesis program for drum-like sounds. The latest version of STOMPER can always be downloade from this page, which can most easily be found with the following URL

http://www.master-zap.com/stomper/
[NEW!] The old stomper.base.org will be phased out
If you have links to that URL on your page PLEASE CHANGE THEM!!!

STOMPER Ultra++ uses a very simple synthesis method, mixing pitch-shifting narrow-band noise sources or pure sine waves (zero bandwidth noise, really) together to one sound.

Still, it manages to make faithful reproductions of 909's, 808's, and Simmons drums - and even phatter sounds!

Also, it does much more than just drumsounds, now. In the new ULTRA+ version, it's more of an analog synth-thingy too, with several different waveforms, resonant filters, and other yummy things...

What some users say about STOMPER:

"Really cool application!
We hardly use the real 909 anymore...
'Stomper' kicks bigtime!"
- Robin Söderman, Antiloop
[RealAudio] Hear Antiloops song "In My Mind", which has Stomper Kicks!
"I really like this software. I used it for kick drums, and they sound really great, powerful and definite."
- Alejandro Guerrieri, Oid Mortales Records
"After using Stomper I thought I was ready to start my own record label"
- FlipMode.com
"Abso-f'ing-lute-ly awesome.....an endless supply of analog kit samples, sub-basses, and stuff you can't even describe !!!"
- Kilo, DanceTech

Can I try it too? (Downloading Stomper)

You certainly can! Click here to download the latest version (STOMPER ULTRA++ 4.0) of the self installing STOMPER installation program. For nostalgic reasons, and to cater for old links from all over the web you can also get the installation program embedded in a .zip file, although it is not very much smaller!

What's the catch?

Stomper is MusicWare, that means that it it doesn't cost you anything except Music! If you use STOMPER sounds in your music, you are kindly asked to send some of it to me (for my listening pleasure only - you retain all ownership to your music, of course!). A normal casette tape is sufficient, although if you make a commercial CD, tape, or Vinyl, you must send one (1) copy of it to me!

If you are feeling generous and truly like the program, you are encourage to pay the registration fee of $10 via the online credit card payment facility. Note that: This is not required - you do this out of generosity and your free will. Also, it does not relieve you from the MusicWare obligations as defined above!

Another neat way to support me in my programming/music making, would be to buy my CD (click for details)! You'll love it, it is simply crawling with Stomper sounds! Just read on:

Want Stomper on a CD for only $20?

Why would you want to do that when you can download it for free? Because it's cool, because you can use it as a frisbee, and because you get almost two hours of cool stomping music with it. Click here for more info about my independently released really cool CD "The Curvature of Space"

Is there a mailinglist for this thing?

Yes, it's a nice one, with a great feeling of "community". We are in high gear, discussing software synthesis in general mostly. Sometimes traffic can be high! One interesting project born on the list is the stompilation.

Stompilation!

Check out the Stompilation!! A bunch of folks on the Stomper Mailing list (mentioned above) has collected a set of tracks using Stomper sounds, which eventually - if all goes well - will end up on a CD called the "Stompilation". For now, the Stompilation is only available on the web, where you can download mp3 files of Stomper tracks.

Why ULTRA? And ULTRA++!?!

It's just my corny sense of humor. Once it was called just "Stomper" but I made a pretty large upgrade (adding filters and several waveforms). This new and improved version of Stomper must have a new and improved name!! So I figured, the latest detergent/nappy/whatever is always called "Ultra", "Ultra Plus", or "Ultra special Plus (new and improved)", so I thought, why not called the improved version of Stomper "Ultra"? And with the addition of WAV import, it got the extra "++" name.

Stomper on a Mac?

I've had numerous request for a Macintosh version of Stomper. That will not happen direcly (since I have no Mac, and no experience in writing software for it).

However, all is not lost. I'm planning a Java version of Stomper - which will naturally run on the Mac too!

Also, running Stomper under SoftWindows95 has been reported by numerous people to work just fine!.

Another way would be to buy the Ensoniq ASR-X Pro sampler/resampler, which has Stomper built in....
