I like the simplicity and videogame-like sounds of this little guy. The modulators for each sound are limited, but all useful and easily identified/programmable. So far so good! However, as is the case with way too many of these homespun VSTs, the routing options are just ... broken ... or missing, or ... I'm not even sure, here. The VST allows you to assign each sound to a Channel (of 6) ... but what this does, or how it relates to your DAW's channels, I have no clue. In Reaper 6, at least, they remain unidentified by the DAW and no actual routing of individual sounds/channels is possible as far as I can tell. A too-frequent frustration with drum synths, even some commercial ones.

Тоже не могу заставить работать этот плагин.в Reaper. Прогу установил давнищу, а изучить всё руки не доходят. Некогда. Нужно работать. Поставил в FL Studio Всё прекрасно работает.

About as good as you could want it to be. Sounds cool and has a nice, simple but flexible interface and uses up very little CPU. The main downside for me is that this synth is a little too much inclined towards the whole, crazy, in your face, digital drums spectrum which means you end up with some cool sounding drum parts that don't really fit in with anything else, that always seem to be saying "hey look at me!" rather than just providing a rhythm track. I want to like this more but realistically i don't think it's quite as use-able as a more basic sounding synth like ERS Drums.

Same here. Cool little drum synth, but the absolutely broken/missing routing kinda kills it.

Really nice, but seems to bug when trying to route the outputs. Is there a fix somewhere? Haven't find yet :'(

Great but not free, it's a magazineware (comes with Computer Magazine which you must buy in order to get it).

This drum machine is pure analog and it sounds funky i love it, hard to believe this is free, I am a big fan of analog drum machines and have been looking for this particular sound on the computer, it has that mechanical low-fi very dirty sound. Also the sound shaping is awesome.

I like it, it has solos and mutes, wich is rare among free drum machines, and the default bank sounds good.
