DigiStix 2 is an AUv3 compatible drum machine and sampler plugin for your favourite DAW.

This new version of DigiStix brings some distinct advantages over its predecessor, most notably the ability to host up to 64 samples per drumkit with 5 layers per pad. The interface has been drastically redesigned for iPad to make better use of full screen mode, allowing a popular MPC style 4x4 pad layout with 4 banks of samples. Digistix 2 also allows greater control over the multi-sample layers, with the ability to individually control the volume levels and pitch of layers as well as global pitch and tune settings all from the new sample window.

Previously, each pad had effect sends for the internal reverb and delay effects, but this can now be routed to external busses 9 and 10 for processing using external effects. 

The controller editing is now build into the main display and can be edited in place without the need to scroll the interface. It also now supports extra effect controllers. A new context aware control window allows you to quickly change pad settings without the need for popup windows. 

DigiStix 2 now supports GM and original DS drum kit layouts, and includes a sophisticated multi-layer Auto Sampler, capable of recording new GM compatible drumkits automatically from your hardware. It is 100% backward compatible with the original app, and can be used as a drop-in replacement.

Drag and drop support now allows you to directly drop samples on specific layers, as well as preview and edit them directly. You can create new kits by simply combining banks from existing kits into one mega kit, or use our non destructive referencing to include sounds from other kits.

The randomize feature has been enhanced so you can randomize individual instruments or within specific banks. The new continuous MIDI learn mode makes custom mapping a breeze.

Patterns can also be exported as MIDI stems for use in other packages including a direct import to Helium clips. You can also export patterns as audio in the latest version.

Has everything and more

Love all the new additions here. The sample delay works perfect, not only for lining up layers just right but also for changing up the groove by making certain elements like hats or kicks just a little bit late/early in relation to each other. Thank you so much for adding that and hope others find it useful as well! I highly recommend all this dev’s apps, you won’t be disappointed. Thanks!

Fantastic! A Developer That Understands the Importance Multi-Velocity

This is a fantastic tool for realistic drum sample and kit creation with the added benefit of being a great rhythm sequencer.

Five fully adjustable velocity layers per kit piece makes dynamic, realistic drum sample creation easy and effective .

An automated MIDI multi-layer sampling feature makes this a self contained powerhouse.

For those who have been struggling with machine-gun style, mechanical, limited, one-off, one layer, percussion samplers this is a no-brainer.
