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.
  • Beat slicing: if a sample contains multiple individual hits, Sitala automatically detects that and allows clicking to play individual parts of the loop.
  • Automatic silence detection: Sitala detects poorly cut samples and automatically positions the playhead in the right spot.
  • 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.


  • 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, Audio Unit and AAX support.

Perfect combination of features and simplicity! I personally love the option to preview all the samples in the folder. Finally some love to my hundreds of one shots.

Thank you.

My favorite no-nonsense (drum)sample player.

- Comes with some samples and kits, but you can just as easy use your own samples.

- Live one-click browsing/auditioning samples in the context of your track, so useful.

- Basic yet essential tweaking on per sample basis.

- Loads fast, easy on the CPU.

- No FX but focus on the basic functionality.

Absolutely love it.

Decomposer struck the balance between power and simplicity to create a fun but powerful drum sampler that is a joy to use and sounds great.

They keep adding new features and it just gets better and better. It is now my favorite drum sampler for use in FL Studio and Reaper.

I'm using this to sample all my percussion instruments. It's the most intuitive interface I've used for composing percussion. For instance, I can just drop a sample into a pad, assign it to a note on my drum map, right click to get it to choke another sample, and start entering my beats by playing them on my controller or drawing them with my mouse.

Tried a few different free drum machines and this comes out on top so far. Simple, easy to use and a nice plugin for free.
