LinPlug has announced the re-release of Element P, a virtual percussion instrument plug-in for Windows.

The LinPlug Element P has been manufactured until April 2004, and now, after 6 years it is in store again. We got requests from time to time and finally decided to make this dedicated percussion synthesizer available again.

With its simple FM-alike technology it has its unique sound, is easy to edit and much fun to play with. We put in all efforts to make it compatible with todays production environment, so it is fully compatible with all Windows versions from XP on up to Windows 7, both 32 and 64 bit.

A Mac version will follow , if we see demand. If you are on Mac and love to check it out, please drop us a line.
