With his Entity Ultra-Kick module Andrew Morelli introduces a personal lovechild, which he has worked on since the discontinuation of his Entity Bass Drum Module (BDS).
User feedback on the BDS found its way into the UK module alongside his own ideas. Thus, the single-core architecture was transformed into a dual-core resonator design of which one core (Frequency) is responsible for the frequency component, while the second one (Character) is dedicated to the transient response and offers a wide range of impulse/attack characteristics and tones.
The sound palette ranges from impressive bass drums and percussive sounds towards synth tones and allows impressive and well-thought shaping-options within the individual steps of sound shaping.
Via the Ripple control, an adjustable range of the "Frequency" core enters the Character core, where smaller doses add clicks/accents to the transient, while higher control ranges create exciting FM effects and wavedistortion artifacts. The Punch knob controls a soft clipper/saturator housed between the two cores, which can provide subtle saturation as well as extremely high distortion doses. Finally, a three-part dynamics processor joins the party; with an (auto)compressor reacting to the excitation state of the second resonator core that can be fine-tuned via the 6dB side-chain filter (bass drive) and the dynamics control (NY-Style parallel compression). Afterwards the gain-dist control come into play, sending the signal with more or less momentum into the distortion limiter. This prevents clipping of the freshly designed kick, but also lets it dive into additional distortion dimensions if required.
Attenuators for decay, character, and bass drive are also available, along with extensive patch/trigger options.

Steady State Fate (SSF) is the instrument design outlet of Andrew Morelli. Whereas the WMD/SSF product line features simple and small-format modules, his newly self-released modules are getting a very positive reception.
