Synapse Audio Intros EKS-9 Electronic Bass Drum Synth


Synapse Audio has introduced EKS-9, unique VST/AU plugin dedicated to creating vintage-style electronic bass drum sounds – and has served up a sexy 3d ad for a virtual instrument to boot.


Its virtual analog engine is not only capable of authentic recreations of the sounds from such machines, but can synthesize new kick sounds with lots of punch, too.

The EKS-9 is available for Windows and Mac OS X. A free demo version is also available. It is fully functional, except that patches cannot be recalled and white noise is introduced every minute.

System requirements:

  • Windows: Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7
  • Mac OS X: OS X 10.4 (Tiger), 10.5 (Leopard), 10.6 (Snow Leopard)
  • A host software which supports VST or AudioUnits

EKS-9 is $39 during the first month; regular price is $49.
