Plugin Boutique is offering a 40% discount on the Hats drum synthesizer plugin dedicated to hi-hats and cymbals sounds.

Instead of generic white or pink noise, the noise section features 6 square wave oscillators with different pitches and phases, like the famous 808 – the result is a noise sound with a controllable metallic character.

The factory bank comes with more than 50 samples, ranging from rare analog drum machines to real acoustic hi-hats and cymbals. Some of the samples were also processed with a classic Aphex Aural Exciter and recorded to tape with a vintage Revox B77 MkII.

Both sources can then be processed with 4 effects: Ring Modulator, Bit Crusher, Filter, and Reverb. The effects can also be arranged in any order with a simple drag and drop. The filter section features a HighPass and BandPass in series; both filters are 12dB/oct state variable filters with zero delay feedback.
