Third Harmonic Studios has released EXD-80, a freeware virtual analog drum synthesizer instrument in VSTi plugin format for Windows.

EXD-80 is a flexible drum synth that can produce a wide variety of drum and percussion sounds, from emulations of classic drum machines to crazy, mangled glitch sounds – all synthesized, no samples here!

EXD-80 is available for free download via Third Harmonic Studios (4.07MB download size, 32-bit VSTi plugin format for Windows).

The plugin is based on subtractive synthesis and there are no samples inside. It can be used for re-creating classic drum machine sounds, as well as creating new and unique glitched-out sounds and noises.

According to the developers it can cover a range of genres from house and techno to glitch and hip hop. I’ve included an audio demo below and you can take a look at the demo video on YouTube (click to open in new tab).

  1. Hey,
    thanx for the hint.

    Has great options and not the typical parameters or in other words: Seems to very flexible for weird sounds. A contender to Attack and Microtonic?
