The ultimate drum machine? I think not...

The ultimate synthetic drum machine? I think so!

For me it comes down to three things.

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.

Does anyone know if Drumatic, Drumatic 2 and Drumatic 3 work on a X64 system?

3 July 2016 at 1:51pm

It's x86, but you can certainly run it on a x64 system. I have x64 system and a x86 DAW that supports bridging. Everything works fine.

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?

No, doesn't help. Try jbridge.

Or if your 32-bit plugins are in the majority... run all plugins in 32-bit in Cubase 5 x32.

No way! Then I can only use 4 gigs instead of all my 16 gigs memory.

3 July 2016 at 8:36pm

Do you really hit that ceiling that often? :)

Besides, just using the nature of bridges you can "delegate" some of your plugins to outer memory just by bridging it.

4 July 2016 at 5:51pm

Maybe not the full 16 but I'm often somewhere around 7 or 8.. so yes, I need the x64 setup.

3 July 2016 at 9:16pm

Well, jbridge it is then. ;)

3 July 2016 at 9:18pm

jbridge crashes Cubase as soon as I start ANY plugin, so I uninstalled it.

Does anyone know maybe another drummachine like drumatic for x64?

5 July 2016 at 12:35am
