About the software

Backbone is your new, innovative drum designer for single kicks, snares, hi-hats, percussion, rises, hits and more. Layer up to eight samples and shape them with classic subtractive synthesis, decompose samples into tonal and noise elements, re-synthesize samples to manipulate them in unheard ways and apply up to eight effects with two fully routable buses — all with a slick, extremely fast interface. Backbone takes your drums into a whole new era of sound design — the era of drum re-synthesis!

The main features of Steinberg Backbone are:

  • Intuitively design drums with up to eight layers
  • Re-synthesize one-shots and loops
  • Directly export audio for clip-based music production
  • Backbone supports VST 3, AU and AAX
