De La Mancha has released a new drum sample player for the PC, Ballistic, as a fund raiser for cancer research. It sells for $10, and all money received from sales of ballistic will be donated to Cancer Research UK.
ballistic is a 15 slot drum sample player designed to get you making beats quickly without a million parameters to adjust. All controls are on one screen and the essentials are built in, but with one stereo output per slot, you can add more effects per slot in your hosts mixer. This keeps CPU low and workflow efficient.
Simple but effective, it boasts flexible midi triggers, sample audition, sample tuning, 4 choke groups, mute/solo options, sample reverse, sample normalisation, a lofi option and several kits of samples donated by many generous sample providers such as Loopmasters, Zero-G, Digital-Redux, Goldbaby, Soniccouture, Real Music Media, Ronnie @ Rekkerd, sink, polyslax and bedroom producers.
Even better, all proceeds of sales of ballistic will be donated to Cancer Research UK, helping them in their aim of beating cancer. More details on their work here.
ballistic is the little brother to erratic2, which uses the same sample playback engine, but adds many extra features that randomise and humanise the playback, as well as 6 velocity layers per sample and midi out to trigger external synths and samplers.
