Freebie watch: Diablo Lite is built to make drums punch, slap, and hit harder

It really sounds like we want our drums to beat us up. Anyway, Diablo Lite, a new free plug-in from Cymatics, is all about harder-hitting drums – and it in fact is some nice boutique software.

Texture is a free, rich granular reverb plug-in with mid/side for Mac, Windows

You deserve some instant ambience – ready to pour over your sounds like so much maple syrup. Hell, yeah – and download this now, as it’s free only in December.
