Hex Drum | Oblivion Sound Lab
A CLASSIC DRUM MACHINE SOUND, REIMAGINED
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.
