I don't know about mostly, but it's a plugin not a standalone. It also has a feature to add latency so that the impact point lines up with the incoming MIDI. That means you can easily create a snare with a reversed build-up and you don't have to shift the MIDI note forward in time.

I plan on using it for both purposes.
the old free version may not work boots successfully on new generations of computers, instruments, and hardware

Thanks for taking an interest in my project folks, it's much appreciated.

The plugin in its current state is indeed not geared towards that kind of usage.
Particular emphasis is placed on aligning the layers. Which at the moment requires a sync point to be set, as pough mentioned.

The use case you describe sounds relevant to me though.
I can see some kind of « batch/folder drag and dropping » and an option to not copy imported samples. This would set the sync point of the dropped samples to sample/index 0 by default, which works for a lot of pre-cut/processed drum sample. It would also require an easy way to switch the sample source on a layer though, without going back and forth between the rack and the library...

This isn’t a top priority at the moment though, I’m afraid. But I’ll write back to you if I add this feature!

for making drum samples for players like
Tal-Drum for instance.
You're right, it is not for playing drumS. It is an individual drum generator/synthesiser.
It receives midi notes sequenced externally (taking only velocity into consideration for now, not pitch -> update pretty high on the priority list) and plays back all the layers you have loaded in your rack !

Ok, cool I'm looking forward to it!

What kind of music would you say are the factory sounds geared for mainly?

Looks really cool. Gonna give it a try! Curious if the granular can do the type of lo-fi stretch like abletons impulse stretch can do.

There are so many drum rack type containers, like Maschine, ableon drum rack and bitwig drum machine. So this type of drum plugin is really useful and I always wish drum plugins had a single drum version.

I've tried it now together with TAL Drum and overall I like the latter more. The concept of oh!snap looks cool but I do not enjoy the workflow. I can't even pinpoint what bothers me exactly, it just doesn't feel smooth. Looking at the browser makes me uncomfortable. I also didn't like the sounds that came with it, so it doesn't help that you can't load your own samples in the demo :shrug:
I may check it again if the the support for user samples becomes better.

@pough Thanks for suggesting TAL Drum. I'll probably buy that one because it seems to do everything that battery does, just better and without the bullshit.
