Plugin Boutique has posted another Top 5 Friday video, showcasing some of its most popular plugins and virtual instruments in a particular genre.
This time, producer Tim Cant takes a look at five software drum machine plugins.
The following plugins have made it on the list:
5. StiX by XILS-lab
StiX brings together a wide variety of drum sounds in one interface, charting the course from early analogue drum machine sounds, through to powerful digital hits.
4. Heartbeat by Softube
When it comes to analogue modelling, Swedish developer Softube usually sticks to effects, which is why everyone was pleasantly surprised when they came out with Heartbeat.
3. MicroTonic by Sonic Charge
MicroTonic has been around for years, but it’s still near the top of everyone’s drum machine pile.
2. Battery 4 by Native Instruments
It’s more of a drum sampler that a traditional synth-based drum machine, but Battery is the powerhouse that countless pro producers swear by, and it’s not hard to see why.
1. Geist 2 by FXpansion
Geist 2 is a whole beatmaking workstation plugin that can actually run standalone too. It’s a huge piece of software, with fully-featured sampling, massively flexible sequencing, and a full mixer with effects – but that’s just scratching the surface.
