Drum One By Sound Magic
Drum One, a free acoustic drum kit plugin for Windows and macOS, is now available from Sound Magic. Sound Magic’s Drum One is a completely free drum VST plugin. It generates acoustic drum sounds with a lightweight version of the Supreme Drums engine.
This free virtual instrument comes with a small 80 MB installation since it generates sounds using modeling technology rather than sampling. That’s nothing compared to some fully sampled acoustic drum kits like the SSD 5.5 plugin with Steven Slate Drums.
Another benefit of modeling-based virtual instruments is the ability to personalize the sounds. The Center for Haptic Audio Interaction Research’s EXC!TE SNARE DRUM plugin is an excellent example of this.
Drum One, on the other hand, does not allow you to fine-tune the drums. Instead, each drum component comes with many pre-made settings. You may pick from a variety of kick drums, snare drums, floor toms, and other instruments. You may also alter the microphone levels for each section of the drum set (in, out, overheads). This allows you to personalize the drum kit and adjust the mix to your liking.
Drum One has a reverb effect and a basic transient shaper. Only a dry/wet mix control is available in the reverb. You can’t change the size, decay, or any of the other settings.

“Drum One is a free drum kits plug-in utilizing a lite version of Supreme Drums Engine. It is designed to provide high-quality, easy-to-use drum kits to musicians/producers. By using the latest modeling technology, it has a small size which is around 80MB.”
The growing number of free drum plugins has an amazing addition in Drum One from Sound Magic. Considering its small installation size, it delivers quality acoustic drum sounds because of its modeling-based technology. While some may find the lack of major customization possibilities to be a downside, the wide variety of pre-made drum settings and programmable microphone levels offer plenty of potential for modification.
Reverb and transient shaping are important additional effects that let you customize the drum sound. Drum One is a true gift for musicians and producers looking for a small, user-friendly drum plugin that doesn’t sacrifice quality.
Therefore, I recommend you give it a try before buying any paid plugins since it could work for you and because this plugin costs you nothing.
