For more detailed information on a given product please see the review that will report on any
weird bugs or issues encountered.
Browsing Style: Visual Maps means the
plug-in generates a map the user uses to select sounds as opposed to a browser based system.
Ability to Group Sample Packs: The
ability to create groups of packs to sort and use instead of having to use all packs at the same
time. This is not the ability to turn packs on or off but rather the ability to group several packs
into one macro that only searches those packs without the need to toggle other packs back on or off.
Atlas 2 does this with their "Maps" concept.
AI Sort:An algorithm is used to sort
and select samples.
Sequencer: if a sequencer to generate
rhythms is present.
Sequence Pitch Info: Ability to
sequence notes and pitch information.
Stacking: Ability to trigger multiple
samples with one note.
Loop Auto Chopping: Ability to slice
a loop for you instead of placing loop slicing yourself.
Drag and Drop Export: The ability to
drag supported export types directly into the project from the plugin without dialog boxes.
Record In: Ability to record midi
performances to internal plugin sequencer.
Access to samples: Direct access to
the physical samples provided so that a host isn't needed to get to them.
Intuition: A loose judgment on how
intuitive the interface is. How quickly you can make small and large adjustments. Every time I have
to look something up this score goes down.
Installation Pain: On a few
occassions the installation process was so bad that the plugin wasn't worth it. Most librarys have
streamlined the installation process so that it is not bad, but it is noted here.
