Is there a way to change patches/presets via program change in Shortcircuit ?
ANY info would be greatly appreciated.

Is it a joke???
Just before the beginning of the specifications the text says "...phase-modulation (better known as FM)..."
Are you really serious!? Don't you know that there is absolutely not any relation between phase modulation (exactly the term is "phase distortion") and frequency modulation ???
Absolutely nothing to do between the techniques of phase modulation and frequency modulation!!.
With such a confusion I really doubt that you know exactly the synthesis techniques you employ in this VST apart the use of samples!!! It is probably a good (even excellent) sampler... but doing a so obvious confusion between phase modulation and frequency modulation is very, very, very strange for users who master one (or both) of these two techniques!!.

BlackWinny, with all due respect, you are the one who is confused. For sine wave carriers and modulators, PM and FM are essentially the same -- Yamaha used PM in the DX-7 but called it FM, for example. You can find many references on this subject. Here is one example:
"Phase distortion" is just Casio's marketing name for Phase Modulation BTW.

"It has a beat slicer for drum loop"
for pity's sake, can someone tell me where this 'slicing' function is??
i am about to give up on this entirely it's so frustrating...

Set the button saying "forward" to sliced and add slices with Ctrl + Left Mouse.

ok, that's a great help. however i am now stuck on how to assign the slices into zones?
at the moment, even though the slices are mapped to a key each, i cannot seem to select a single slice to edit. all i have is the whole loop, i cannot isolate each individual slice... if i COULD i think i would be a very happy shopper indeed : /.

If you look here:
You will find a downloadable Shortcircuit knowledge base ;-) Many answers to yet unasked questions :)

Dear Developer, please put out a x64 Version of it, so is for EVERYONE ACCESSABLE.
Thank you for understanding.

Very cool software! I would like to know how can I make slices on ShortCircuit2. On ShortCircuit1, all I had to do was Ctrl+Left click, which would then create a new slice, or Right click and then select one of the option for slicing, like in this image :
But on ShortCircuit2, I can't do neither of those things, I can only move an "H" cursor.

Dear Vember Audio, please consider also open sourcing Short Circuit so that it can be updated! Thanks.

I did email Claes about this (he of bitwig) to ask if he'd consider making it open source, but I'm sure he's too busy to do anything about it, alas. I'd think there's probably either code in shortcircuit that he doesn't want people to see or use.
It's a pity as shortcircuit is the only sampler I use, and the only VST that I use via jBridge, which - while it works - isn't ideal for a number of reasons. I'd love to get just an x64 version, and one with a scalable UI would be perfect.

It seems that the developer's website is offline... for those looking for the plugin download, you can get it at vstplanet.com or search it in the internet archive.
