12 / Synthesis Algorithms

DrumSpillage is a model based drum synthesizer plugin for Mac OS X featuring 12 exclusive drum models capable of synthesizing a diverse range of electronic percussion sounds.

The models implement a variety of synthesis techniques including classic analog, physical modelling and FM synthesis. More info about the new features in V2 can be found here on our blog.

Bass Drum
Dual oscillators, multiple waveforms and FM enabled. Tuned for deep kick and bass drums.
Bass Drum 2
Solid analog sounding kick drums with full control over pitch, decay and transient attack.
Snare Drum
Snappy electronic snare model. Fully customisable from classic TR sounds to modern snare timbres.
Wood Drum
Flexible wooden drum model delivering natural and synthetic timbres from rim-shots to congas.
Synth Clap
Synthetic hand clap with control over noise source, clap speed and ambience tail.
Hand Bell
Modelled bell sounds with overtone, edge, filter, partials and q controls. Multiple oscillator shapes.
Dual oscillator + noise combination. Fully tuneable with unique flam and presence controls.
Sweet closed and open hi-hat timbres with precision control over oscillators, noise and dual-filters.
Rich source of metallic cymbal and percussion timbres featuring dynamic filter control.
Modelled after a suspended metal membrane. Generates dense inharmonic sound clouds and glass-like timbres.
Noise Drum
4 band pass filtered noise oscillators with variable Q, pitch and lo-fi effects. Now includes sine generators!
FM Percussion
A mini FM synth in itself. Generates a huge range of electronic percussion from sub-bass to snares.


New UI

DrumSpillage 2 features a brand new user interface design. Whilst keeping the version 1 aesthetic intact we've tightened up the overall structure and improved workflow. Modulation and velocity controls are now ultra simple to set up. Extra large easy-to-hit sliders and clearer labelling simplify your drum design process.


Upgraded Synthesis

DrumSpillage 2 adds new synthesis controls and significantly upgraded sound quality across the board. The hi-hat and cymbal models now use anti-aliased oscillators for a sweeter sound. Further upgrades include improved filtering, new distortion algorithms, 3-band resonator, frequency shifter effects and an optimised DSP chain to ensure a tight sound with low CPU overhead.


Modulation and Velocity Control

DrumSpillage includes 4 dedicated LFOs per pad and a new dynamic velocity system to control the synthesis parameters in real-time via MIDI velocity. LFOs can be cross-modulated and feature new waveform shapes. These new features combine to create extremely dynamic synthesized drum kits.


New Presets and Stability

DrumSpillage 2 includes a selection of new presets demonstrating the expanded sound design capabilities of the instrument. A lot of development work has gone into making DrumSpillage 2.0 a more robust instrument with respect to preset management and audio stability.

Review by
Resident Advisor

"DrumSpillage is not another TR-909 clone. It's not a drum box you've heard before—it sounds more like a compilation of many."

Review by Plughugger

“Really impressed with DrumSpillage, it's one of the best sounding drum synths I've heard... It's all over the new record.”


"The synth engines are superb. It's the first drum synth plugin that's able to make top notch kick drums that can really drive my tracks."

John Tejada

"Great job on DrumSpillage 2. It’s miles ahead of the competition."
