Mac OS X :
The plugin need Mac OS X 10.8.4 (Mountain Lion) or newer, if you have 10.6 or 10.7, drop me an email and i -can- provide you an alpha version : this version has not been tested and lack some features !
Unlike the VST/AU Speek, this time i didn’t code the AudioUnit “from scratch” but used the incredible Symbiosis VST / AU from NuEdge : http://nuedge.net/article/5-symbiosis
a big thank to the author !
There are still some limitations / small bugs, please read the user guide & FAQ text.
I’ll fix that in next release. I’ve also planned to add some features (most wanted is the “drag and replace” sample).
The plugin is VST2 (and AudioUnit) and has been tested on Ableton Live, FL Studio, Cubase, Logic, Renoise, Reaper, Protools (via wrapper), Psycle, MadTracker, Temper, Bitwig, Tunafish, VSTHost, SaviHost, TobyBear MiniHost, Giada, Melodo, PedalBoard, AuLab, Nuendo, Ardour, EnergyXT, Studio One, Mutools, VSTLord, Cantabile, Xlutop Chainer, Maschine.

The 2 Ulimited Get Ready 4 This stab !
this one is coming from… the 70’s 🙂
Back to 1977, we have this LP with 250 super deejays jingles : perfect for your radio show.
here’s a short sample with some of the jingles :
now listen to the jingle ( @ 1’17 in the video)
and cut all but the last stab before the voice =>
Let’s load the short stab into the funky sampler and GO! Get Ready To Paaartay !
The “88 to Piano” stab
Now go back to 1988 with this funky stab we can hear on
The Minutemen – Bingo Bongo
this is probably that record that was sampled for those rave hits from the 1992 :
The Ultimate Seduction – House Nation
Mainx – 88 To Piano
and they maybe all have sampled the stab from the famous Nitro Deluxe tracks !
unlike the Inner City stab, it’s not found on the original mix but on the “dub” mix, right at the start
Nitro Deluxe – Let’s Get Brutal (Dub Mix)
The “Landlord” stab again !
The real origin of the “Landlord” stab : https://www.gearslutz.com/board/electronic-music-instruments-electronic-music-production/990794-i-think-i-found-real-origin-landlord-stab.html
The Todd Terry Black Riot stab !
listen to this funky freestyle tune 🙂
specially @ 4’38
Sequal – Not Too Late Dub
The screaming aaaaaah in Cameo Money
coming from a powerful acapella from Patti Labelle and the Something Special (is Gonna Happen Tonight) funky song from 1986
this one was sampled and used with great effect on the Cameo – Money (Reese remix) and many other rave songs ! like Blame – Music Takes You.
and now go back to the studio and make some f***cking uptempo records !
