SONiVOX updates Playa to v1.1
SONiVOX has released version 1.1. of Playa, a hip hop virtual instrument plug-in for Windows and Mac.
Playa serves up over 450 instruments and pad layouts, all in an interface that’s guaranteed to have you laying down cutting edge beats and music in no time. Playa interfaces seamlessly with your DAW and midi controllers so you can just it hook up and start laying down grooves the way you’re used to. Like a glove, Playa fits your style.
Changes in Playa v1.1
- Improved browser interface — New browser scrolling function allows you to scroll quickly through all content files in a folder without needing to select and load each one individually.
- ‘Save Learn’ & ‘Load Learn’ — This feature lets you save your current controller-pad configuration and recall it later. Now, it’s no longer necessary to re-learn your controller to Playa pad assignments.
- ‘Remove Learn (All)’ — This feature lets you clear the learned assignments for all pads at once.
- ‘Clear Map’ & ‘Clear Map (All)’ — These new functions allow you to clear out mapped samples from the currently selected pad (‘Clear Map’) or all pads at once (‘Clear Map (All)’) while Playa is in ‘Pads’ mode.
Playa is available for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/RTAS) for $149 USD.
