One Small Clue Poise

One Small Clue has released version of Poise, its percussion sampler instrument plug-in for Windows.

Poise features 16 drum pads, which can each use 8 samples. Sample layers have parameters for pitch, volume and balance, as well as amplitude and pitch envelopes. There are several sample switching types including random, velocity and round-robin.

Changes in Poise v1.1.50.72

  • Muting drum pads when the left mouse button is released is now option. Previously drum pads were always muted.
  • Poise will now send MIDI Note events when triggering a drum pad with the mouse.
  • Bug Fix: Poise would crash if it didn’t have permission to write in it’s debug data directory.
  • Bug Fix: Poise was failing to recall sample layer velocity ranges correctly in some situations.
  • Bug Fix: A loud click would sometimes be heard when delaying a sample onset (using the Sample Offset control). More noticable if the sample end marker was also not on a zero-crossing.
  • Bug Fix: Some drum pad names refused to show on the GUI.
  • Bug Fix: Text in browser isn’t scrambled after adding new directories.

Poise for Windows (VST) is available for purchase for $49 USD.
