The free plug-in reaches V1.1 with a new GUI and an expanded sound palette
Science's Vintage Drum Elements is a VST/AU drum machine plug-in that
emulates the sound of the Yamaha RX5, an 80s beat machine which - in
its original hardware form - has graced recordings by everyone from
Depeche Mode and Pet Shop Boys to Masters At Work and Chromeo. The
plug-in's recently had an upgrade that's given it a new user
interface and an added drum kit, but the price remains the same -
that is, the princely sum of zero pence/cents.
Vintage Drum Elements now gives you five drum kits: two RX5 kits,
plus the Synthetic Kit and Ethnic Kit and the newly added Yamaha
RX21. You also get a full FX kit, plus four instruments: DX Bass, DX
Clavecin, DX Marimba and DX Orchestra.
Drum Elements works as a VST/AU plug-in on both Macs and PCs, and
supports both 32- and 64-bit processing. And while it's not the most
fully-specced drum machine on the market, we're sure you'll agree
that at the price, it's gotta be worth a look!
