I love the audio player in Gig Performer. It’s a great solution for playing back stems for a full on backing track. Where I feel it could be a bit better is in the triggering of single one shot samples in combination with loops.
I’m thinking about the way a percussion multipad works, like the Alesis Strike Multipad or the Roland SPD-S. It would be great if there was a plugin for a matrix of sample pads, say 3 x 3, with each one holding a one shot or a loop, each of which could be triggered with a specific widget or midi message.
Many drummers will trigger a short repeating loop, and then have other one shot percussion samples that can be triggered over the top while the first continues to play. As far as I can tell, you can only choose between multi and single mode in the audio player, but not a combination of both. I’ve been thinking about how to re-create this with a script, but it’s probably beyond my comprehension level.
