One of the more interesting step filters I've used. The interface is nice to look at and generally intuitive. The randomize function ("Random Dice") is fun. Saving and loading patches is a little clunky.

Not reinvented the wheel but made a usefull filter step gate.
Recommended for all who love easy to use, nice looking fx plugins with a randomizer.
Not recommmended for grumblers always finding something to complain about although it's free.

Free at the moment. Installed it, tried it, deleted it after 15 minutes. Not worth the space in my plugin list. Someone will think it's da bomb, probably. ymmv.

What am I doing wrong installing it?

Win 7 64-bit, Ableton 9.0.1 32-bit.

Tried both bit-versions and various destination folders but it never shows in the plug-in list.....?

Cheers dudes.

Same here...I download it and I get a folder. I extract it and it never shows up in my VST folder in Reaper. Weird.
