Exc!te Cymbal


The free cymbal plugin offers an ultra-realistic sound through physical modeling. Use MIDI notes to trigger the built-in exciter and change the tip hardness and bell intensity parameters. For added realism, MIDI trigger values can be adjusted with a probability curve. The exciter is powered by a waveguide resonator algorithm that allows you to change pitch, decay and damping.
