Now, here's something different - a product that the company doesn't try to oversell in their ads. From a cursory glance at Riffer's ads, I got the impression that it was basically a one trick pony, a simple product that producers MIDI riffs for your productions, and nothing more. I couldn't have been more wrong. As arpeggiators go, Riffer is at the top of its class. Going beyond the typical rate/scale/direction/gate/velocity/swing (called Shuffle here) of other arpeggiators, this one offers a whole lot more with things such as glitch/ratcheting (called Density here), tie and sustain (probably the first place I've ever seen this), 64 step sequencer, perpetual random sequence of every loop, and the creme de la creme - 57 scales in any key you choose, from the ordinary (chromatic, major, minor, etc) to the exotic (Arabian A & B, Hungarian Gypsy, Prometheus, Chinese, etc), plus you can save your own. All of these features propels Riffer to the top of the arpeggiating class. Also, and I'm not sure its because its a VST3, but it doesn't freeze Cubase 12 like other VST2 arpeggiators when I try to run two or more instances. Riffer is definitely a keeper.

Tools like Riffer are the secret weapons for all musical non-educated music makers.
Choose key, pattern lenght, number of notes, shuffle-mode, motion direction, sustain and tied notes and than...
hit the random button!
Or let Riffer hit it by itself e.g. every 4 bars. With the right settings the results are very usable.

Take three instances of Riffer (bass, pad, lead) and one or two instances of Playbeat, an other great tool by Audiomodern,
and you have a endless but not repetitive playing jukebox.;-)
5 Stars for fun and usability!
