    Thought a little of drum machines/synths is a good thing. So here we go.
    (excluding of course samplers here like Battery, which do not make any sound on their own. Ofc synths can be used to synthesize drum sounds.)

    ArticStorm is asking about Drum SYNTH and not sample player ...

    Most of Beat16 addition are sample based players, as well as XO.

    LinPlug RMV (discontinued) had some nice drum synth modules.

    DKS Pro joins the "classical" oscillator-based electronics drum synthesis approach with simple FM synthesis, physical modeling of the drum shell and a powerful set of effects. This synthesizer can emulate many of the classic electronic drum machine sounds, but through its extra FM and physical drum shell modeling features can go much further. www.kvraudio.com/product/dks_pro_by_araldfx

    Tremor has some dope things in store. Didnt realize as it was released back in 2015.
    Kudos to R2R for releasing the License Manager, saved my day.

    Fxpansion seems pretty dead to me right now. :(:snuffy:

    Punch2 also had some very interesting sounds in store. But the gui man, why so many knobs and why so tiny! Can not somebody gift RP a free course in GUI design? Damn.

    There is something special creating one shots in Punch2, its a great drum synth - so once i have sampled some stuff from Punch2, i will delete it again ...

    Thanks for the expanding my list.
