de la Mancha - 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

The samples are triggered in a step sequencer but can also be triggered by midi notes as per the GM standard for drums (see further down) or a mixture of both methods to get a balance of consistency and randomisation (eg the randomised beat in the step sequemcer and fills programmed in midi piano roll)

erratic is a multi-out VST, this means each sample is output to a different mixer channel. You need to set your host to see erratic as multi-out and whichever mixer channel you route erratic to, the output will be to this and the following 7 mixer channels.
