Chow Kick is a kick drum synthesizer based on creative physical modelling of old drum machine circuits.

Along with a highly parameterizable pulse shaper, Chow Kick uses a resonant filter with several nonlinear modes, creating a wide range of possibilities for sound designers. The kick drum can also be easily "tuned" with incoming MIDI notes to match the key of your song!

Never was there an easier way to go from Simmons to TR909 to TR808 bassdrums, just try it. Insane this is free, insane how good and clean it sounds and yes how easy to program. This is EDM Synthwave and House Bassdrum dream. I use it for every track. Every.

I said screw it to most of my drum samples and moved onto this for all modern dance music kicks, not joking, all of them! Light on CPU, stable, easy to program but still very flexible for slow or fast-moving music, soft or hard kick drum and just sounds great like Eric Prydz kicks. This is easily the best free kick drum synthesizer 64-bit VST there is. This is pretty perfect as it is but if Dev wants to add something, a separate master EQ next to filter but it's fine without because a separate EQ is a must for all kicks anyway and many prefer a specific plugin for EQ.

Works as advertised, great way to get nice kick drums quick. Pairs nicely with the chow tape plugin they also offer.
