Oblivion Sound Lab has released Hex Drum, a virtual instrument inspired by synth drum machines of the 1980s, in particular the Simmons SDS series with its distinctive hexagonal drum pads, from which the plugin takes its name.
Oblivion Sound Lab say:
For Hex Drum we took inspiration from the architecture of the SDS 'drum brain' and made it more flexible by adding deep editing controls, and some unique twists of our own.
Hex Drum lets you easily dial in that vintage drum sound, but still feels right at home in a modern mix.
