Impressive! I own tabla so don't have a ton of use for this ensemble in it's current form, but I plan on picking it apart for doing other drum sequencing...

Interesting idea. There *seems* to be some misbehavior among the sequences - like a one-off error in the actual number of pattern steps or something. Maybe I just need to look at it more.

Awesome piece of work! A total blast to jam with! The random feature actually creates musically useful grooves. Thank you.

a second note; it took me a few secs to figure out to link the clock to 'eXt' in order to link it to BPM. it's probably a neat idea to allow a choice, but what about making BPM-linkage the default? this disconenct was the main thing that soured jitterBug for me; only there i didn't see a choice at all.

rick, this is gorgeous! i have been looking for acoustically modelled instruments and drums, and while i absolutely love the quirky variances in timbre and tempo possible with geigerDrum, i have to say that the density of tabla's rhythms and its grid-randomization structure is hard to beat! i also love the auTo function, which essentially allows me to 'channel-surf' for rhythms. :) so, any chance of adding a little more quirky character [timbre, resonance, etc] into the drum-characteristics region? if you did, and maybe even added a bank or two more drumtracks which were switchable, you'd have it completely nailed. great stuff! -aqaraza

One of my top 10 favorite ensembles. It's working it's way into more and more of our pop-music productions, even. Thank you so much!

Can't say it'll replace the original (what happened to all those randomize buttons?) but it may well compliment it well enough.

Question for Rick: I really like the timing feature with the randomiser there any way to sync the randomiser with the clock so that the changes occur at the start of the new bar (or whatever bar amount you choose)? That would be brilliant.

This wonderful ensemble does not deserve to be dressed up in GREY! Nice to see one of your old masterpieces turning up for a re-fit.
