Ricardo F. Gomes has released Off-Grid, a free drum machine primarily designed for layering and experimentation.
The plugin contains a large variety of different percussive types, which can be accessed/cycled entirely from the UI on the fly without ever breaking the signal flow.
Each of the 7 channels runs on 4 voices distributed for each cell unit where you can select and do other processing such as pitching, reverse, loop, as well as layer mixing, etc.
A series of random triggers are a significant part of the plugin workflow as a single touch may change the entire channel output, or simply adjust the panning or gain values.
- Fast Unique workflow

Off-Grid is available in VST/VST3 plugin formats for Windows and macOS.
