Drumatic 3 is a virtual analog drum synthesizer.

All sounds are 100% synthetic and allow an enormous flexibility and variation. Sounds are: Bassdrum, Snaredrum, Handclap, 2 Toms, Hihats and a Rimshot / Bell.
  • Graphical envelopes for amplitude and modulation.
  • Load / save presets for single sounds.
  • Simple but effective effect section for each sound with distortion and bitcrusher and a filter.
  • 6 Stereo outputs, assignable for each sound.
  • All parameters can be automated (midi-CC not yet supported).
Please support freeware development

Be careful with your hearing and equipment while using this one! Maybe it's just my 10-year-old computer and my decision to run on 64-bit GNU/Linux which forces Wine to be two versions behind LOL but, this plug-in cannot be used with OpenMPT v1.30.06. The kick drum is totally worthless no matter how the volume is adjusted inside and outside the plug-in. The VU meter shoots straight up clipping everything else. Eventually it either hangs the app or throws an exception, like a few others of this developer's plug-ins. For a few drum sounds rendered out of this thing (excluding "Brutal Kit") I suggest downloading Majken's Grizzly.

This plug-in seems to work well on Debian v11 "Bullseye" base which has Wine v5, with the same release of OpenMPT, but don't rely on this report. It should be the same on Ubuntu which is still on Wine v6. I was able to use KX-SYNTH-X16 v4.3 for example in Wine v8 on a couple of rolling-release distro installations, but it's better to keep an "outdated" distro around for someone like me who insists avoiding Windows as much as possible. Get the "Bullseye" while you still can, before Debian 30th anniversary!

I've been a fan of drumatic for a while, but I've recently had issues with the kick being ridiculously loud with no way to fix it, I can get around this with kick samples but I'm wondering if anyone here knows how to fix this issue?

Unfortunately, also doesn't work with Zynewave Podium. It says "Could not open Plugin Drumatic 3.dll" Any ideas, on how to fix??? (About 99 % Plugins are working without probs in Podium)

I've tried installing this plugin in the FL12 plugins folder as well as the general Vst Plugins folder. I'm using wine to run FL however I have never had any problems like this. Who knows, maybe I'm just being stupid.

This finds a good balance between weird, cold, digital synths like waldorf attack and warm, crude, analog synths. You can dial in some weird sounds and have loads of options but the basic sound quality is still quite warm and nice a lot of the time. There are lots of options but they are laid out in a fairly comprehensible manner so it shouldn't become too confusing. I maybe slightly prefer ERS drums for its mellower sound and simpler interface but this is a really excellent, serious bit of software. CPU usage is low.

Pretty much what everyone said. Just upvoting it. Anyone know about extra Drumatic 3 banks? Please post. Oh yeah, my goto drum synth. Use it all the time.

One of the best drum synth with DSK Drum synth, CM 505 and SR 202. But if you have 99$... buy a "Utonic" by Sonic Charge, it's a bomb.

Really fantastic drum synth! Give it a go. I use it to design al kinds of sound that I render out to one-shot samples. We use it a lot. Take a listen here: http://underthesurface.bandcamp.com

One of the BEST freeware drum synths there has ever been period! Drumatic 3 is even better than a lot of Commercial drum synths. It get full marks from me.

This is my fave drum vst. I have tried many; few can cut through the mix with this kind of punch and volume. Easy to use, and easy to customize, with a small load on the cpu. In my top ten of vst.

The best virtual drum machine I have used. For writing EBM & Industrial this is perfect with a few reverb and distortion fx stuck on top of it.

This is a generally good drum kit, but I think you should be able to name out the percussion, like it does in the FPC, or the Fruity Drumsynth Live.
