Sitala is a free drum plugin and standalone app
Sitala‘s beauty is simplicity. It‘s fast and musical. Six knobs. Sixteen pads. Drag and drop. Playable like instrument.
New in Sitala 1.0 — Released December 11, 2020:
• Editable sample start and end points
With automatic silence detection, playback starts where the sound actually starts, not at the beginning of the file.
• Beat slicing
Individual hits are automatically detected, and can be sliced out to a series of Sitala pads.
• AAX for Pro Tools
This is the first release with an AAX version for both Windows and macOS.
• Automatic Multi-Out in Reaper
Setting Reaper to multi-out mode automatically puts Sitala into multi-out mode and channel names are kept in sync with Sitala’s pad names.
Sitala‘s Features Include:
• 16 Assignable Pads
Use our built-in 808 kit or your own sounds. Each sample is analyzed for dynamics and pitch, which makes the controls more intuitive and musical.
You can save the kits you create to your user kits library.
• Drag and Drop Sound Management
Drop single samples or groups of samples onto Sitala’s pads.
