1. GUI if you can easily understand and make the thing create the sounds you desire in a logical and straight forward way that is easy to replicate or explore, then you have a winner and it's easier to go onto number 2.
2. The sound! It is easy to dial just the right amounts of everything with this drum synth. A little noise? A little more umph or pop? You got it... It is full, deep, thin and crisp. Whatever you need.
3. Stability... it's no good if your inspiration is interrupted every few minutes or randomly in the middle of your groove. This thing is solid as a rock as far as I can tell.
To be fair I have not tested many other commercial drum synths, but if I compare it to the drum synth in LinPlug's RMV, this little freebie puts it to shame in my book.
Compared to Sonicharge's uTonic I find it hard to make the tone/musical type drum notes like in uTonic, but for straight 909, 808 and others Drumatic 3 is always my top choice. :)
Only weak point is the lack of presets... but it's FREE.
Thanx man! I'm gonna try without crashing my bridge. I'm working with Cubase 5 x64 but for some reason the bridge crashes with the use of some x86 stuff. Unfortunately also with some stuff I used a lot like Topaz Klang LFO filter. Would it help if i put the .dll files in the x64 plugin folder in programfiles?
