  1. bobby

    Great plugin with some excellent, and useful, sounds included for the different genres.
    Their are some minor issues (effects are Global) and it needs some work to make it more effective, but it’s a fantastic first time effort and I look forward to the updates and improvements. The developers are open to dialogue and seek constructive feedback, which is always a good thing!

    • Afroplug

      Thanks for the great feedback and support Bobby! We’ll keep it up!


    Usually the first question people think about when it comes to a “freebie” is the question: “is it any good?” Or “does it produce high quality sound?”
    I have spent hours on this free “Afroplugin – Drum Vst,” trying out the various sounds and presets, and I can fully assure everybody that it is a great tool when it comes to producing drum beats of different genres, from Afrobeats to Reggae, Hip-hop, RnB, Funk, and even GOSPEL, etc.
    It has high quality drum samples which sound good on Monitors, Headphones, and even Hi-fi speakers. If a sound bank of samples is great in all of these three areas above, then it’s quality is pretty unquestionable.
    There are also some essential global effects like hi-pass and low-pass filters, panner for each sample, etc; and my favourite among these global effects is the Saturation effect, which can give your drum mix a catchy texture.
    In fact, when it comes to African style Afrobeats, I haven’t yet seen any free drum Vst that is better than this one.
    You won’t regret trying out this drum plugin, after all, Afroplug is giving this wonderful music tool out for free. Now, go check it out yourself!

    I tried afroplugin with my mac os catalina and logic pro X, logic pro detects the version of your plugin in version 2.5.9 and not version 1, moreover it is broken.

    good luck

      Hello Almeida, we are sorry to hear that and we will improve it. But first, have you downloaded the new version sent? It is on your account. Please try again and if it still doesn’t work, don’t hesitate to come back to us. 🙂

    I definitely like the idea of this app, especially as Afrobeats take a more prominent role in today’s music. However, the app will not load for me in Logic Pro X; I get an error when opening Logic Pro X. I had to delete the app. Hoping for a fix in a new update.

    Just had a quick look at this and it sounds quite useful, nice sounds, easy to use, shame you can’t get multi outputs, ie send each sound to a different track (using Reaper), but I guess I could always put the plugin on a number of tracks. Nice plugin though.

  61. Arath

    What to say, it’s weird that no one asked for it, and that really in drum kits there are not so many nice things, it is one of the best free drum machines that I have seen, its drum kits are very good, and it amazes me how they sound Despite being free, I hope they make other plugins like that to make other genres like r & b, pop, rock and other genres, and if the possibility is given I hope they are free, I expect more accessories from you 😀 !!!

  62. Sibona

    Afroplug is awesome! It offers various presets to kickstarter your creativity.

  63. William

    Cool and most of all useable….

  64. Marc Rose

    Good staple sounds but not nearly as flexible as inputting sounds in other available drum machine vsts. Would need to be alot more sounds and alot more flexibility to change parameters per pad to be useful in the day to day toolbox.

    Really enjoying this drum plug in so far. It’s different from the crowd and the samples really suit my taste in music. As a blind person I struggle with some plug ins and hardly any are perfect but I can at least access the list of kits and select the one I want. The sounds play well from my midi keyboard and the mouse will click and play on the screen. There is subtle stereo separation and I think would be easy to do more or split the sounds to different tracks. Only things missing are maybe some midi loops/grooves and ideally a sequencer but on the whole it’s great. Thanks guys!

    the layout is simple so I can find easily everything I need, but above all I like that I can change pitch, reverb, saturation, volume, pan and ADSR of every single PAD.
    Love it!

  166. Jimmy Horton

    Very dope. My new go2 plugin for Afro beats, Reggae. Dance hall type styled music. For those in doubt of whether to down load the plugin it’s a no brainer! In fact it’s MUST HAVE plugin for those island, caribean based styled beats. You can also use it to make your own custom loops, tops, bottoms etc. I’ve already used it on a couple of projects, & the results were suprising bkz i didn’t expect very much from this litte (drum) plugin. And i also LOVED the GUI. Only thing i wised it had was (midi) routing which if it does have i couldn’t find lol. I would like to send all the individual sounds to it’s own track if you will, that way i can mix individual drum sound parts, & edit them as specifiied. But all in all i would heavily advise the use, and purchase of Afro plugins & other products bkz the sound quality thus far is exemplirary! Glad i didn’t over look the (FREE) drum plugin offer, & those who do the same will be pleasantly suprised at the QUALITY, of it’s samples, ease of use, as well usability which is key.

    I loved testing this free version of Afroplug vst, the sounds are very good, I was surprised by the quality, mainly because it is free.
    Afroplugin comes with 10 presets, for you to use in the style of music you want, similar to Afrobeat, Hip-Hop , Reggaeton, Zouk, Kizomba etc. Just let your imagination flow.
    The vst also has a riverb FX, a mixing table for you to control the volume of each piece of drums individually, you just can’t use the pitch and effects to manipulate the sounds individually, at least in the free version, some times that is necessary, but I believe that the full version of the vst will be even more refined, I also missed being able to change the size of the vst. But for a free vst it is wonderful! Thanks to Afroplug

    Only used it a couple of times so far but seems like a very good plugin, easy to install and set up in your DAW. Very authentic drum kits and easy to use presets. Seems to be aimed at the Afro and Latin scenes but there’s Hip Hop and others presets too.

I hope there will be more kits because it’s a tight plugin for sketching an idea or adding drums easily. Thanks!

Ca ne retire en rien aux qualités sonores.

  331. Tyrik

    I am enjoying the plugin, It has authentic sounds to each preset in the library. A couple suggestions I would have would be, the option to resize the plugin and clicking from one preset to another is not instantaneous.

    I needed a “Caribbean” drum beat for a new song that I’m orchestrating in Reaper, and I thought Afroplug might do the job. It did the job very well! I am quite surprised that this plugin is really completely FREE. It’s straightforward interface offers a lot of tweaking and fine-tuning options. The results are quite satisfying.

    So far so good. Gets the basics done however it needs an automatic way of adding the plugins instead of having to move them from the Zip file. It would also be great if it could also work on MIDI keyboards a lot more easier.

    Love the sounds its a nice Drum VST the only thing I don’t care for is that the plugin is too big inside FL Studio and I had to detach it to see the bottom 6 pads but other than that I like its sounds and can definitely see making some dope beats using the drums or percussion sounds in this VST.

    Thank you for the 2 free plugins: Afroplug, Afrokeys. I followed your instructions and copied the .dll files and libraries in the folders you suggested, but my DAW does not see them so I am not able to use them. Are these 64-bit vst3? I am using Cubase elements11 on a window 10 PC. I am very anxious to try and would appreciate help on how to make them work. Thank you for your help.

    Afroplug is a simple plugin, who, instead of confusing you with tons of parameters, inspires you and let’s you go straight to laying out your beat. The included samples are really good as well. Definitely a solid freebie.

  465. Kaushal Sharma

    To be very honest. All the samples are really dope. I couldn’t find samples like these on any other free vst.
    But the lack of restore to default position and individual effects for each sample is soooo pissing me off.
    Why would anyone want to add effects to the whole drum bus ? Doesn’t make any sense.
