Good day,

Loving the plugin, its such a workflow enhancer, definitely worth the money!

Some suggestions:

1. Some knob to be able to able to pitch the punch as well (like a switch maybe). I'm using Nimble Kick on 2 channel tracks with one for the punch and one forthe tail. However, if I want to pitch my punch I need to bounce the punch channel track and pitch the punch manually in my DAW.

2. Being able to enter precise values into the ADSR.

3. Reverse button. This way we can easily reverse our kicks and make that ' sucking' character you hear a lot in raw kicks and still make it tonal easily.

4. Make the root knob go to G#0. Now I have to put my kicks an octave higher in the piano roll and that's trigging my autism :P.

5. I know you're planning to be able to offset the tail, but can you also do this for the punch? This way I can cut my kick into 3 pieces in my projects (attack - punch - tail) with 3 layers for more control. Not a priority though.

Thanks for the suggestions!

For 1, have you tried unchecking the "separate tail" option? Maybe that's what you're looking for. If you have any more specific ideas for that though, let me know.

yes that helps. However I cannot put exact values into the ADSR to cutoff the punch then so sometimes I have a few ms overlap or a few ms of silence which actually isn't that much of a problem.

oh yes. if you do the punch only on the pogo modifier, it creates some weird artifacts.

What kind of artifacts are you hearing? Can you provide an example wav file of the problem? (You can send it privately via email if you want,

it was specific to the project and I don't remember which project it was.


I notice that I tend to use your plugin more and more as a general sampler. It's really simple to use and the pitching algorithms give it that extra edge above my DAW's sampler (Studio One) and Kontakt (which is quite heavy and not user friendly for doing things quickly).

In that sense I like to program my drums such as snares and claps as well in your program. On that note I do miss more and more the option to easily pitch the punch only, and an offset modifier to delay the punch / whole kick sound within the plugin itself.

Oh and another suggestion, a button to have the EQ before or after the distortion ;).

I hear that often, that people use it for snares and claps! Will look into these suggestions, thanks.
