Software Reviews Part 2

Kicklab XL - Free (6/10)
Kicklab XL (a free version of Kicklab XXL) promises the ability to generate your own kick sounds, which it delivers on. You can make some pretty nice electronic kick samples to fatten up your old kick sounds or to use on their own. It's pretty limited, but it does a good job at what it does.

Failures

  3. Stupid preview mode? Wha..?
    I don't think I ever bothered with drum-sound generators. I was all about the samples.

    I messed around with VDJ, seemed like it was pretty fun on the fly.

  4. The preview mode plays back the sound after ever adjustment, which I usually do automatically with my midi keyboard, so they overlap. It's just a bit annoying until you disable it.
