I like the idea of Playbeat, and it looks fun, but the fact that you can’t export audio (like Riffer), and lack of multiple outputs make it more like a toy you can waste a couple of hours on. Then again, it’s pretty cheap. I have a feeling it will get cheaper even, after the introductory price expires. I got Riffer for $19 bucks that way. I just waited and 2 weeks later Riffer went on sale thru Audio Plugin Deals (or was it VST Buzz?) for even cheaper.

Hi,

I submitted a couple of ideas for Playbeat and I would be pleased to know what you think of them ;)

1- Browsing samples :
  • It will be really cool if it was possible to select Next and Previous sample on each slot
  • A random pick in the actual folder containing the sample would also be nice
2- Presets :
  • A right click for example, for overwriting a preset button would be very cool
3- Random :
  • Random Pitch : the possibility to constrain to a selected scale
4- Sample editing :
  • Some features like sample length (or a little ADSR) and not only sample start
  • Sample reverse
5- Exporting
  • Export Audio and Midi (Drag & Drop)
6- Panning for each sample (I know that using the multiple outputs that gets possible 😉 )

7- GUI : I think that there a few clicks that could be avoided. Instead of selecting each time one of the four slots to editing each volume, shuffle, or random parameters. I think that it would be really cool to have 4 lanes with volume, shuffle etc. always visible for the all the 4 slots (no need to select each slot to set the levels etc.)

Cheers,
GilJ.

Nice plug-in. But after just a few minutes it crashes Studio One 4.5.2 in all formats on Mac OS 10.12.6.

All of a sudden it is looking better. I think AudioDeluxe has this for $31 (once you sign in and add it to your cart). I may have to pick this up soon. EDIT: WRONG. I think the price just went up. It's $41 with the discount.

Yeah, I checked right after I typed that. Lol! Ok, who has it cheaper than $41?
