    MZTK releases Z-Drum free drum machine VST instrument


    MZTK has released Z-Drum, a free drum machine VST instrument for Windows.

    Z-Drum was a follow up to a beta called ZoxDrum -which used samples, with emphasis on trying to get pattern-chaining working, and a basic structure for a simple VST x0x-style drum machine.

    This is a pre-beta-whatever version, proof of concept etc. it never got finished because i could not resolve some issues and went off on a tangent trying to improve something and ended up with another project. There is wrong triggering on pattern change 1st step – due to how pattern change is governed, need a new method here.

    At the time i was trying to do this with very few 3rd party modules-here there are 3. For syntheditors: this is an example of using 2 patchmems in a single plugin.
