LiveTweaker is a multi-functional instrument bringing together a 12-slot drum sampler, a drum synth and a monophonic synth in a single plug-in.
Conceived with live use in mind, the idea is to have 3 instruments on one single track for quick & easy tweaking using a MIDI controller. The second idea is to avoid sterile repetition of the same thing by including various random features. You can achieve subtle variations on a snare’s pitch, a cymbal’s decay, or simulate the osc pitch instability of an old analogue synth, but you can also turn your pattern into something totally different after each repetition. Livetweaker aims to keep things both simple, quick, and easy to use, all along with deep user customizable features for more sonic control.
I like coffee is a drum sampler that randomizes between samples. You can load either 2 or 4 samples per midi destination. There are 12 midi slots, and you can assign them to any midi key. No samples are included.

11 instruments: 1 wave player with 1 vco, 3 filters, 3 envelope generators and a complete control by the velocity. It has 5 stereo outputs.
erratic erratic is a drum sample player with some added ‘randomising’ features to give variation on every cycle. The randomising is adjustable for each sample and can be switched off if desired. You can independantly adjust the randomisation of;
- hit probability for each of the steps in the sequencer for each sample
- hit velocity spread for each of the steps in the sequencer for each sample
- pitch variation for each sample
- swing (hit timing variation) for each sample
- swing on a global level (in addition to the per sample swing)
In addition, you can adjust
- hit velocity for each of the steps in the sequencer for each sample
- volume, panning and pitch for each sample
- minimum value for velocity sensitive lp filter cutoff
- global tightness (reduces the per sample swing)
- number of steps per bar (measure) 12/16/24/32
