Works quite nicely for me. Has been rock stable so far and seems up to the task. Intuitively to work with, responsive and clear interface. Still is a lot of work to tag and sort a big library that has been growing for ten years or more for sure, but that's within the nature of these things.

I haven't come across such an unstable plugin in many years. It crashes so often it's completely useless. I could add one star for being free, but I would have to take it back for my lost time, especially since the developer doesn't seem to care.

IMO it is the best sample manager out there. UI + UX is perfect. Responsive support. Master volume. VST version. Quick search. It made my production x100 faster. Strongly recommend. I loaded 250 GB into it. Don't listen to people who say it's unstable. It haven't crashed even once at my system Win 10 x64. Also people do it wrong when try to drag and drop 1 huge folder into ADSR Sample Manager. You want to go inside and drag 100 sub folders instead.

Extremely buggy and unstable. The idea is great, and if it worked ok, it would be super-cool, but it crashes multiple times while scanning my library, then it crashes when I'm using it (standalone or VST - doesn't matter).

2 stars instead of 1 since its free. This is the most unstable plugin I have come across after using hundreds. Been waiting for a fix but company is not prioritizing this plugin to fix. Good luck but highly recommend skipping until new version that is somewhat stable. Absolutely do not try to load a large library into this. It won't work.

Oh god. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I need nothing more. I waited for my whole life for this random button.

I'd guess you're in my team and think ANY software should have a random button?
