Our Verdict

A disappointment.

Pros

  • A good idea!

Cons

  • Poor sounds.

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.
