Are our main reviews proving too long for you? Then kick back with this bite-sized appraisal…
Pandomax is a VST drum machine with a unique selling point: its settings can be easily randomised with a specialised menu.
Randomax has 11 drum sections, each of which can use either one or two WAV files to create its sounds, along with a selection of controls including transpose, gain, pan and the like. More than 800 drum samples are included, but sadly, most are pretty poor.
In fact, quite a few of the kick and snare samples don't really sound much like kicks or snares at all, and most of the toms sound nothing like any toms – real or synthesized – that we've heard before.
This is a pity, because the idea behind Randomax – easy drum kit randomisation – is a good one. However, Prodyon are promising a second version, enabling you to use your own drum sounds – now that really might be something worth investing in.
