Looks great and plays as standalone, but in Reaper6 it overloads on playing (i.e. +330dB!). I must be doing something wrong?

If you haven't heard already: Sitala is THE BEST sampler for Reaper. Really. Hands-down, full stop, this is it. Now download it and get to making some sick beats. And THANK YOU Decomposer.de!!!

So handy to make drums in simplicity. Very useful and quick to use also for things such as playing multiple samples in the same hit. The controls for each pad are suuuuper handy. I wouldn't dislike an output volume knob, but I'm not complaining. Can't believe it's free!

Has improve tremendously and is top notch now. Great Drum sampler and I hear there are still more developments and improvements on the way. Good for the developers.

It is very practical and configurable, ideal for making your own percussion libraries

I've tried to install this twice, and on both occasions couldn't locate the .dll file necessary to use it in Reaper. What it does install is a "helper.exe" file which is impossible to delete, therefore making me very suspicious indeed. To get rid of it, I've twice had to go to an earlier restore point on my PC. It's a shame because the stand alone version I was able to access looked very useful. On the subject of drum samplers, it's a shame that MuDrum isn't available as a VST - I'd even pay for it!

Is unusable with Mixcraft 8 and previous versions. The menus are inaccessible, making it impossible to load own samples - which is essential because the existing ones are garbage in that it fails to include toms and decent acoustic drumkit.

Very nice but when I try to reload a patch kit that I made some of them crash the plugin and DAW, but not everyone of them. ???? Frustrating after having set up a whole new kit from samples on my hard drive.

this is a nice drum vst. simple and was esy to Route in Tracn shapinktion 7 and reaper. the only issues i had was sometimes when shaping waveforms it would go to far or not nearly how much you wanted to shape it. it only occurred once in a while and usually after Ive mapped it to my midi controller.

I have used NI battery, AD2, SD3, all i ever wanted from a drum machine VST was this, basically if you add a tweakable envelope (that lets you adjust not ADSR but the tension of them) instead of a shape knob this will be the best lightweight solution on the market. Some other great feature would be a mapping tab, where you can link various things to velocity, like a low pass filter, or pitch. Really nice work.

Warning: installs invasive "update service." Would be an excellent plugin otherwise. Note to developer: this work is too good to ruin with said service, please remove it.

I agree. Since my music computer doesn't have an internet connection, the service didn't start and the install failed. "Er, what service?" I pondered. Having installed on a different computer, I see a "sitalaupdatehelper.exe" is set to autorun from the registry key "HKLMSystemCurrentControlSetServices". That leaves a bad taste in the mouth. I like the simplicity of the software, but I am more than capable of checking for updates myself. Ask us if we want automatic checking, or have the software check when it's used. Don't go sticking a background service in there.

Installs an undefeatable "update service" without asking permission. Not cool.

Very easy to use plus drag and drop into the slots is a great plus.

Great. Is it will be possible to assing each pad to any other Output? For example, send all Hats to 5-6 Out. It will be cool. Anyway, you are gays super. I wass looked for somthing like this for 5 ears. Thanks.

A great simple idea of a GM drum sample player. Can I be cheeky and ask the developer that if another version of this is made, that pan, and/or separate audio outs are added functions? This plugin is as good as the samples you load into it, and has some basic but good waveshaping options. The configurable keyboard mapping lets you set GM or sequential keys for the triggering of each drum sound from a keyboard. Nice idea and really useful for using a real drum machine to trigger the plugin's sounds. Thank you vey much Sitala

Hi! Thanks for the kind words :) The upcoming version of Sitala will finally include a much sought after panning feature. Separate outs do exist already for VST and AU. Access this feature by selecting "Use One Audio Output per Pad" in the 'hamburger' menu. Cheers
