Free Music Software: Chowdhury DSP has introduced Chow Kick, a free & open source kick drum synthesizer for iOS, Linux, Mac & Windows.

Chow Kick is based on ‘creative physical modelling of old drum machine circuits’. Along with a highly parameterizable pulse shaper, Chow Kick uses a resonant filter with several nonlinear modes, creating a wide range of possibilities for sound designers. The kick drum can also be easily “tuned” with incoming MIDI notes to match the key of your song.

It’s available now as a free download.
