Maxsynths DR-910 is a Roland TR-909 drum machine emulation, in terms of sound the DR-910 VSTi is a faithful reproduction of the original device: each sound section (bassdrum, snare drum, etc.) has been developed to sound and act as similar as possible to the original instrument.
The plugin includes also some extra features not available in the hardware version: a reverb unit with independent send controls for each sound source, a compressor tailored to work with drum sounds (based on the same engine of MaxSynths DSP-1) and a Lo-Fi FX processor.
These extra features will help the user to quickly shape the sound as desired without using external plugins. However if you need to process the signal with external effects, each drum module can be routed to four different stereo outputs that can be independently processed in the DAW.
What i like:
I like the look and the simplicity, it sounds great and the reverb is fantastic, the four stereo outputs, the low CPU usage.
What i Don’t like:
Nothing because it’s free.
