80's Simmons Drums Sounds Revisited

Oblivion Sound Lab releases Hex Drum for Mac and Windows      09/11/20

 Oblivion Sound Lab describes Hex Drum as a virtual drum synth inspired by iconic drum machine's of the 1980s. They say that it was particularly inspired by the Simmons SDS series with its distinctive hexagonal drum pads, from which it takes its name. It is available in VST3 and AU formats for macOS and Windows. Here's the details in the company's own words...

Hex Drum is a virtual instrument inspired by synth drum machines of the 1980s, in particular the Simmons SDS series with its distinctive hexagonal drum pads, from which our plugin takes its name.

Simmons drums were used on countless recordings during the 1980s across many genres, from disco, to reggae, to chart-topping pop hits. In recent years their distinctive sound has been given new life in synthwave and other '80s inspired genres.

For Hex Drum we took inspiration from the architecture of the SDS "drum brain" and made it more flexible by adding deep editing controls, and some unique twists of our own.

Hex Drum lets you easily dial in that classic vintage drum sound, but still feels right at home in a modern mix.
