    This is really a great plug. I love shakerlines, but don’t have that much … With this plug I can “convert” all my hihatloops into shakerlines. Needs abit of post-processing, but it is very useful.

    Installed it into Acoustica Mixcraft 5 on a Windows 7 (64-bit) system but refuses to show up in the VSTi list.
