I'd be all over this if it ran on Reaktor Player.

Thanks for the comment. Unfortunately Native Instruments don't do third party deals for Reaktor, like they do for Kontakt. If they did, this would definitely be available for Reaktor Player.

No worries. I'd been toying with getting Reaktor for a while so decided to take the plunge. This module was enough to reach the tipping point. You did a great job with the presets and getting the sound down, warts 'n all :) Congrats.

Same here. Looks sexy and, judging from the description, would go great in my music style.

Yeah. The sound demos on their site are good too. I have chip emulation plugins like Chipsounds, but the way this is bundled together with the different engines and is focussed on percussion seems really inspiring.
