Beat DRMR is a VST/AU plugin for Windows and macOS, instantly providing 178 drum kits for Electro, Techno, Detroit, Minimal, Acid and other styles that need punchy drums. The pack includes a total 2.136 sounds, the sources include AirBase, Analog Rytm, Dreadbox, DrumBrute, a huge modular system and other fancy sources.
The drum kits:
Some kits are really nice but many are boring and/or made out of very mediocre samples. After I had deleted all of them, the amount of occupied disk space is acceptable so that Beat DRMR is worth to keep.
Like others always wrote, the GUI is weird because of the tiny (but important) knobs with vertical (WHY?) labels and the giant (but useless) pads. I think it's all about the nice flashing the big pads do during playback...great to impress beginners. :D.
I've been using version 1.0 in a few different plugin hosts in various states of up-to-date-ness.
There's lots of great sounds in DRMR. Nearly every bank gives the user something pleasant without any additional modification. The global and per-channel controls are sensible and intuitive, and make the aforementioned adjustments easy to understand.
DRMR has no multi-out access, nor does it allow MIDI control for any parameter. The UI, while simple to understand, is a bit out of proportion, with oversized pads that eat up the user's screen space and undersized knobs that can be difficult for some users to click accurately.
It's quite convenient for some "set it and forget it" drum programming, but if you need to do something with complex multi-channel processing, or with automation, DRMR may not be the plugin for you.Read Review
Some great sounds here, thank you. UI w/ giant squares is waste of space -- huge on laptop. Also sideways knobs awkward, not easy to quickly dial in.Read Review
