Full Bucket Music Bucket Pops
Like the vintage instrument, Bucket Pops has all 15 drum instruments, each with the same charm as the original. Full Bucket Music does not use samples for this emulation but has recreated all 15 instruments with pure synthesis. Each sound has tweakable instrument parameters known from the original. It includes Quijada, Tambourine, and Guiro as well as sliders for volume and balance.
Buck Pops ships with the 20 original rhythms of the Korg Mini Pops-7 but has the ability to create its own rhythms thanks to a built-in sequencer. The plugin is written in native C++ code for high performance and low CPU consumption. Further, it has a resizable user interface, as well as full MIDI, learn support. This means you can control all parameters with MIDI CC.
All in all, this is yet another must-have plugin from Full Buck Music. Even more, if you are a fan of the sounds of Jean-Michel Jarre.
