      1. Let’s all just agree your both wrong.
        It uses samples for the attack and a synthesizer section for the “body” (sustain/release/subs) of the kick.
        Let’s also just agree it looks stupid.

  1. me is right that it’s use samples
    He’s wrong that it looks stupid,it looks very nice ( same layout like volume shaper).
    I used the demo and Im convinced.
    For me this is the plugin of 2014 till now.
    My favorite plugin in 2013 was volumeshaper 3.
    These are the plugins where I live for and wait every day for to come out,nothing fancy,just simple to use and effective.
    This will be a winner.
    just make your music and don’t worry about the kick because with this it will always fit with the best quality possible.

  2. Looks interesting. I’ll give it a go. Thanks!

    BTW, Anyone into drum madness should def check out BreakTweaker. It has changed the way I go about editing drum sequences, and the library has excellent material to work with.
