Best Freeware Drum Machine / Synthesizer Plugins For PC & Mac (2020)

SYNTH ANATOMY uses affiliation & partner programs (big red buttons) to finance a part of the activity. If you use these, you support the website. Thanks! 

Here is the SYNTH ANATOMY list of the best freeware drum machine/rompler/sampler/synthesizer plugins for PC & Mac including sample-based & synthesis based instruments.

Many classic Synthesizers or effects plugins are available in a free or commercial form. If you look at the beats section with free drum machines or drum synths, it will be much smaller. Here you can find free drum machine/instrument plugins that are based on samples or even on pure synthesis.

The vintage trend can also be clearly seen here. Many plugins are based on sounds from vintage drum machines like the Roland TR-808/TR-909.

    • Thanks for the information. Not sure yet if I will put it in the list because the developers writes: Free at this moment! so it will be not forever freeware.
      Let’s see. Cheers
