We've just fixed the link to the PDF manual in the product page.
We are also working on new audio demos and a video walkthrough, stay tuned :)

Thanks Audiothing for that fun little latin tool. Very fun to play with the random feature in the sequencer. Always results in cool groovey latin rhythms. Love it, although its field of application is not very wide, at least not for me. Nevertheless, it's a must buy kfhkh

Please add multi-out to this one. That would improve the sound possibilities a lot.

Thanks! Yes, multi-out is already on the todo list for a future update. I'm also waiting for more feedback and suggestions :)

Nice idea- even though the sounds are absolutely, positively, 'guaranteedly' NOT latin. Congas, bongos, bass drums do not sound like that at all.

Sonic_Beast 3rd February 2016 07:44 PM

Is it possible to load your own samples?

Beatworld 3rd February 2016 11:17 PM

I haven't had the time to try the demo yet.
I can't see a control for selecting BPM ??

Is there one or does it automatically sync to the BPM of your DAW ?

Well, of course not :) it's a sample-based version of an analog drum machine from the 80s which tried to emulate those sounds.
This is the hardware we sampled/emulated:

There will be no demo for this instrument (like Hand Clapper). We decided to have this policy with plugins like these (drum modules, drum machines...).
Anyway, yes, it automatically syncs to the BPM of the host/DAW you are using. You can change the tempo ratio though (1/4, 1/8, 1/8T etc..).

wtf stop complaining. the dev is refering to the original hardware labelled as latin percussion. it looks like a nice and fun to use product and as someone mentioned earlier, a 909 (or 808 or 505) doesn't sound like real drums either but they're great. i haven't tried it yet but it looks inviting.

Maybe I should have put "The instrument features 6 classic electronic latin sounds"?
I think that the description is quite clear, it's an emulation of an old hardware from the 80s, advertised as Latin Percussion. I don't really think anyone would get confused...

The quoted post was directed at another forum member who had written his own opinion of my initial post. No biggie there...

It always astounds me how easily this site can turn negative about the dumbest stuff.

stardustmedia 5th February 2016 08:43 AM

I think my jokes went the wrong way... will delete them hooppie

"Latin Percussion", the product, the plugin discussed here, not any kind of expected real world acoustic percussion that are related to the very wide genre "latin", is a great sounding plugin (as already stated by me above) hittt

Yes, it's quite rare, I was lucky to get it on eBay and I just fell in love with it.
The most famous from Sound Master was the SR88 (there were several versions).

What a nice machine! Never heard of it but it reminds me of the old Korg Minipops.
How long is the intro price running?

Yes, the sounds are similar, hopefully I'll get my hands on one of the Korg as well :)
The intro price ends February 15th.

Eheh, I probably paid around €300-350. It's quite rare, I've only seen 2 units on eBay so far.

I would think this is probably better than the hardware box, due to the randomisation features alone.

I've been having a great time with this great wee plugin. I wish there were more devs making quite specific products like this. Maybe this is part of the attraction of hardware. The Hand Clapper is a good idea too.

I tend to use my daw as a mixer (even for my hardware) and am sick of inserting a drum machine plugin like Tremor on a channel just to only use one snare from it. It ties up way too many resources. This takes up hardly any cpu and is real easy to use.

Really like the sequencer on this. Its brilliant for coming up with ideas quickly. Good that you can drag out to the daw for expanding the sequence.

I noticed that the sequencer gradually drifts out of time with Ableton, OSX Yosemite. And it crashed ableton when I tried to duplicate the channel it is on.

Thank you! I'm glad you like it.

I've just tried again on my MacBook with Yosemite and Live 9, the sequencer seems stable and no crash when I duplicate the channel (even if the sequencer is playing). Are you using other effects on that channel? Or are you doing anything in particular that I might try as well? Thanks.

Weird, I just opened the same project and there is no funny business at all. Neither glitch happened. I also tried it out on a brand new project and its all good there too. hooppie
