Sitala is a free drum plugin and standalone app.

Sitala's beauty is simplicity. It's fast and musical. Six knobs. Sixteen pads. Drag and drop. Playable like instrument.

16 Assignable Pads:

  • Drag and drop kit management: drag and drop samples into Sitala from your DAW or file browser, and easily drag around sample pads once in Sitala to rearrange them.
  • Built in file-browser: built into the sample viewer making it super fast to select samples without ever having to deal with dialogs.
  • Sample preview: browse through a directory or sets of directories using left and right arrows to quickly listen to and view sample analysis.
  • Velocity sensitive.

  • Assignable trigger and kill groups.

  • Mappable with MIDI learn, sequential notes or General MIDI.

  • Each sample is analyzed for dynamics and pitch, and the controls are automatically adjusted to have a wider effective range and more musical expressiveness.

Controls:

  • Shape: Adjust attack, length and sustain of your sounds while the overall volume remains constant.
  • Compression: Make sounds punchier with more sustain. Automatic gain makeup maintains the overall volume while changing dynamics.
  • Tuning: Pitch sounds up or down by up to one octave.
  • Tone: Emphasizes the highs or lows in a sound. Accentuate or scoop the mids to position the sound in the mix. Adapts based on the pitch content of each sound. Operates as a high-pass, low-pass, sweepable mid-boost or mid-scoop EQ.
  • Volume
  • Pan

Audio Engine:

  • Selectable stereo output or 16-channel one-output-per-pad.
  • Standalone, VST and Audio Unit support.

Love the interface and simple tweaking. With velocity layering I would use it even more. I personally like it clean and would prefer it not venture into FX. Funny, I thought this was more of a rating than a review. No one found it useful, hence...

Sitala is a simple, low CPU usage drum sample player with 16 voices, drag and drop loading, and six simple tweaks for each pad: shape (ADSR), tuning, compression, tone, volume and pan. It's super easy to alter sounds, but there's no detailed editing of samples. It's one sample per pad, though velocity layering is on the road map.

The interface is attractive and easy, and it's cross platform and available in VST and AU flavors so you can use it with anything but Pro Tools natively. The included kits sound very nice and you can get unique sounds in no time. Highly recommended and free.

Fun thing, best feature is the drag and drops and whatnot. Would be nice for internal effects as an addition but I've had cases where it cannot remember my custom kits and I couldn't load the samples back, rather I had to do it from scratch.
