Very nice! This is the best synth drum vst I’ve come across. Although the filter section doesn’t seem to work on most sounds, but the eq does! The filter problem needs an updated fix.

Definitely worth a D.L.!!!

The filter is for the noise/clap generator section.


This actually looks like a copy of SmackBox by Stefan Hållén: http://www.kvraudio.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=181633

If me you prefer his GUI you can download his SynthMaker source code export of SmackBox here (.dll plugin): https://sites.google.com/site/gstefanhallen/Home/smackbox068_001.dll?attredirects=0&d=1


Can’t say I’m surprised it’s someone Else’s work that apparently wasn’t given any form of credit for? At least, I couldn’t find any credit given to the original designer.

I seem to recall DSK being blasted for this sort of thing in the past? Even though I have an account at KVR, I rarely read or engage the forums due to the fact it seems to be drama based at times.


Guys, the DSK website clearly states that SynthDrums is
“* Based on Smackbox project, developed by Stefan.”
Smackbox is even a hyperlink straight to Stefan’s project.


Right, now it does, but I can assure you it was not mentioned when this plugin was released.
