The most recent freebie is Exc!te Cymbal for macOS, Home windows, and Linux. I feel it’s fairly secure to say {that a} cymbal plugin, on the floor, in all probability isn’t probably the most thrilling prospect, regardless of the identify of this specific product.

After I say not probably the most thrilling prospect, I don’t imply it negatively; I simply imply dialog tends to focus extra on kicks, snares, and maybe issues like cinematic percussion. I’m not sure if anybody has requested me if I do know of a fantastic cymbal plugin.

I’ve used a number of drum/percussion plugins, and if I ever discover myself sad with a single a part of a package, it’s usually the cymbals. Even on sure plugins that I feel are good, the kicks/snares might be nice, and the cymbals generally sound too low-cost and tinny.

Listening to Exc!te Cymbal, I’d say it sounds superb, however what impresses me extra is the convincing articulation. Many instrument plugins, not simply cymbals, sound real looking when doing easy issues however go downhill whenever you begin to chain collectively varied articulations. It might usually begin to sound fairly mechanical, clumsy, or disjointed.

The demo of Exc!te Cymbal reveals off a few of that different articulation, phrasing, and dynamics, and it goes from sounding superb to sounding nice.

Chair Audio has created a number of quirky however genuine plugins; test them out. We lined their earlier Exc!te Snare Drum providing on BPB.
