Nice VSTi here. Very straightforward UI, easy to use (minor complaint, the arrows to scroll through the presets, etc are so tiny - in fact the main window needs to be bigger in general). Overall really liked it though. The presets are a mix of good, so-so, and blah, but it's easy to tweak them and I like how the arpeggiator is laid out for the most part. Well worth the download.
I've been using version 1.0 in a few different plugin hosts in various states of up-to-date-ness.
There's lots of great sounds in DRMR. Nearly every bank gives the user something pleasant without any additional modification. The global and per-channel controls are sensible and intuitive, and make the aforementioned adjustments easy to understand.
DRMR has no multi-out access, nor does it allow MIDI control for any parameter. The UI, while simple to understand, is a bit out of proportion, with oversized pads that eat up the user's screen space and undersized knobs that can be difficult for some users to click accurately.
It's quite convenient for some "set it and forget it" drum programming, but if you need to do something with complex multi-channel processing, or with automation, DRMR may not be the plugin for you.
For what this thing does, it is really outstanding. I've been compelled to track down all the free packs for it because they're just fun to play around with.
It's exactly what you would imagine a cross between ReFx Nexus and Dune2 would be if it were stripped down to freeware. The presets sound really good. Surprisingly, it's got 3 LFO's, a mod matrix with 31 destiations, an arpeggiator, and a great sounding filter. Runs stable, coded by Synapse who are probably in the top 5 developers in the business, in my opinion.
I would urge anybody on a budget to get it, or anybody who admires great software to simply marvel at how slick this instrument is.
one or two of the banks i found had issues loading due to an error in the fxb, but it was easy enough to remake and save the .fxb right from the interface.
A pretty decent sampler with several interesting options and a nice but quite small demo soundbank.
CPU friendly if compared with other samplers, interface is user friendly and look inspiring. Effects section is pretty good and contains the usual selection, distortion, eq, modulaton (chorus/ flanger), delay and reverb.
The fact that can load SFZ format is a big plus.
I had small issues when opening files, somehow the loading menu disappear, then I figured out that is just somehow automatically not focused, so it stays behind all opened windows (including the DAW).
There are more interesting samplers or with a smaller CPU consumption, but for this price :) this is warmly recommended.
