Briefly tried Sinebeats in Reaktor...first contact was really, how can I say, cold...interface is very confusing, so small and so filled with details...I couldn't find out how to do anything else than launching factory presets patterns...I liked the sounds though. Definitely feels like something I need to read the manual before diving deeper, but as it happens a lot with software I feel like, it's hard to find...Does anyone know if there is a Sinebeats user manual?

Looks like this one has user manual for the whole factory library : https://www.native-instruments.com/file ... 015_11.pdf

And then there's this sampler from Soniccouture called Blanks, it's based on Kontakt:



I like the UI on this one

You have Ableton Live. Literally anything can be loaded into a drum rack. Any VST. Sample. whatever.

I think the perfect drum synth is yet to be created. I have some personal favorites but they all have drawbacks. The difficulty is that different elements (kicks, snares, cymbals, etc.) require different types of synthesis (and patching), so how do you cram all of that into an easy to understand and program interface? Then there's the sequencing part, which many people expect these days in a standalone drum plugin.

Microtonic by Sonic Charge has a fantastic sound still, even though it is quite old in software years. However, all drum parts share the same synth engine so the range of sounds you can get out of it is somewhat limited. Reaktor is probably the most flexible but has a steep learning curve if you want to go beyond the factory library. I really like the dedicated drum synths in Maschine - they only work in Maschine though.

What I would like to see is software drum modules along the lines of WMD, Erica Synths, Noise Engineering, etc. which you can drop into one unified interface. Something like Phase Plant but for drums.
