Yeah beta very soon. The same team who does SSD5 also does Mimic Pro so it's been a bit hectic making sure the module was ready for NAMM. So we're spread a bit thin, but working hard!

Cheers,
Steven

How would one go about applying to join the beta team?

No problem. Can't wait to hear all the kits. Make sure it comes out July 23rd though. I want it my birthday morning :P

Steven-
Can you tell us what MIDI improvements are planned?

Are we finally going to be able to map parameters in Ableton Live?

I have actually! It was a few years ago though.


I just want to know 1. How to be part of that beta and 2. when we can know what the kits are! That's the part I really want to know.

Just saw an announcement from Slate on Twitter that there's another addition coming to the Everything bundle this week. (swiss ?) Doubt it's SSD5. Too bad.

Hope he can deliver something that sounds spectacular soon. Every time I get that darn Sweetwater catalog in the mail, it's exciting because SSD5 is always in it (I think starting in 2014). Of course it's never available. Getting close to waiting for this update as long as I've been wating for the promised FG-X "2" update.

Hope the beta is going good.

Once he said mid-July I had feeling that this may happen....

He did say that his resources were pretty busy with other project deadlines so it's not that surprising. I'm sure it will be well worth the wait.

Slate Summer Sale coming soon?

I'd like to purchase Virtual Preamp Collection but can't pay $149 for it.

Considering Steven is all over Gearslutz on other threads but hasn't chimed in here in about 6 weeks, I would say that it probably is a ways off yet......

I was really hoping for SSD5 to release this summer. I'm previewing my album project and despite how long it's taken to finish, I think I'll actually have it done before SSD 5 drops at this rate. Steve, can you give us an ETA?

Hi folks, we are fixing some new issues regarding the protection. I'm very sorry for the wait but I promise it will be worth it. Obviously it is in our best interest to only release it when we are certain there are no bugs. Current slate drums users will have a very affordable upgrade path too.

Cheers,
Steven

SSD is a separate product, not included in the Everything Bundle, just FYI. For the time being Slate Digital plugins specifically are the only ones included. SSD is not considered a Slate Digital plugin.

Yup, but you never can tell what Slate will add to the everything bundle (S-Gear?!). Still hoping that SSD5 comes out in the near future. Didn't use "soon" since that ship has sailed.

I have a question for all the people that whine in the Slate threads, when are your products being released? It's obviously
so easy to crank this stuff out.

I can remember when I had to sample drums and create my own crude instruments in a Roland S-760 with 32mb!
We are spoiled having all these amazing kits at our fingertips, SPOILED!! I'll be buying the new SSD5 on the first day but if I can't make music and money with all the tools I have now, it's my own fault and not the software.

bwahhhhhhh! nice.

oh man - poor Steven Slate - i'm sure he can handle it

but everyone is so BRUTAL with his release dates.

understood.

there was an Addictive Drums 2 sale this weekend 2.

i forgot i bought it way back with my 2016 DAW mis-step of the year (Sonar Plat).

bought a couple of packs.

by itself, SSD4 absolutely KILLS it - but blended in with the different AD2 presets.

lawdy lawdy - pretty nice.

and the AD2 GUI is pretty friggin' sweet.

Steven Slate said the SSD5 UI is pretty. hopefully it has some EQ/Comp or channel strip functionality similar to AD2.

i like the AD2 UI. may be too much for some.

but again to emphasize - SSD4 for best drum sounds!!! A+
