Drum synthesizer

MiniSpillage is a free professional quality drum synthesizer plugin from AudioSpillage. At the heart of MiniSpillage lies a high resolution DSP audio engine and a custom set of synthesis algorithms designed exclusively for original electronic drum sounds.

MiniSpillage offers a subset of the features available in DrumSpillage (AudioSpillage's forthcoming commercial drum synth) but in a compact format.

MiniSpillage is not a recreation of classic drum machine glories or a celebration of the past. With MiniSpillage we aim to build on previous innovations and provide modern musicians with an original instrument designed for the demands of today.

Key Features :
- Custom drum synthesis algorithms
- High resolution 64 bit DSP engine
- Fluid real time control
- Clean and intuitive user interface
- Efficient optimised design
Mac OS X 10.4 or higher and an AudioUnit host application.
