Great sound, interesting kits. Only gripe is the specifics of triggering the seq. It is good when you can just start the clock/push "play" instead of a specific key note. Could you not have a "unison" button like on eg the Ob synth, for live jam/"self" accompaniment, or maybe a bypass? Excellent demo, nevertheless. Thanks!

@Jon: Thank you for your answer. Doesn't change the fact that this ensemble is very, very inspiring and combines extremely exciting drum sounds in the kits. I like rather unbloody and simple GUIs, but this is just your distinctive style. Twisted Tools once helped me to optimise some things directly in the core, as my 'mimumachine' also made the computer smoke. Just as an idea... Ah, and spelling mistake, of course I meant 'silverBIRD' ;)

Thanks Einmeir. Yea I'm in the same boat. I can't use it either because it spikes at 30 on mine. The only reason I don't work harder to reduce cpu is because most people have far superior CPU's than my core I5. The mixer is what eats up most of it but and that's after reducing it by about 50% lol

It took me a quick look to understand the structure of the 'snapshots' to get the sequencer working, but then: Great! Super good samples, great patterns and an almost self-explanatory GUI. Unfortunately, the cpu on my old MacBook Air in A'Live races to over 30%, which is why I'm not sure yet whether I want to afford the full version, other sample-based drum machines (I still love the 'Silverbox' for instance) run at only 4-5% cpu - so something is eating up massive performance here. But anyway, thanks for the free version, VERY inspiring!

Thanks Jon. That helps a lot. Snare's a bit tricky, tho as setting the DEC and REL up interferes with flams and ghost notes. Still- BRILLIANT release mate. Thanks again :)

Each one of the pads has a length (decay) and hold (release) knob. Set these all the way up and it should fix the problem. Otherwise I may need to add a MIDI out module. I've run into the problem you're having and a number of different set ups with MID drumkits. I think the issue is they send very short MIDI gates unlike a standard controller that holds a gate as long as you press it.

Works great with my trigger pads, but not so great with my MIDI drum kit. I think the transients are too quick for it. Can't quite figure out where to put a hold module in Jon. Please...anybody?
