The Amen is the legendary Amen Break , packed in a powerful VST Plugin.

No more wasting your time with slicing and re-arranging your Amen Break wave file. Just play your MIDI, turn some knobs and make beats. The Amen Break is already sliced up into it's single drum hits. Each single slice can be triggered by it's own MIDI note. It can be rearranged with no limits, so that you can produce the Amen beat of your choice.

It has two types of amp envelopes, one main envelope, which has effect to all slices, and each single slice additionally has it's own envelope for more individual tweakings. It has a multimode filter, an ADSR filter envelope, two LFO's and an effects section with phaser, bitcrusher, distortion and a reverb. The slices can be played forward and reverse by velocity strength.
  • Synthesis: Sample-based.
  • Each sinle slice ca be triggered by it's own MIDI note (C1 - A4).
  • 1 Resonance Four Pole State Variable Filter, switchable between Low Pass, High Pass, Bandpass and switchable 12/24 dB slope, Resonance can be driven up to self oscillation.
  • 1 ADSR Filter Envelope.
  • 1 AD Amp Envelope.
  • AD Envelope for each single slice.
  • 2 host syncable LFOs.
  • Effects section wit Phaser, Bitcrusher, Distortion and Reverb.
  • Each single slice can be played forward (Velocity set from 0 to 100) and reverse (Velocity set from 101 to 127).
  • Each single slice can be played once or looped (can be set separately for forward and reverse).
  • editable forward start/end positions, editable reverse start/end positions for each single slice.
  • all functions fully automatable.
  • MIDI Learn function for each knob/button.

How do you set it in reverse in LMMS? Velocity works there from 0 to 200, not 127

Only plays the splices in reverse on Reaper 6

That means your velocity is too high. Reverse samples trigger when you play at a high velocity, so try to set a cap to the MIDI velocity

Good but crashes a lot

Hey Yo, it crashes when saving (Live 11) - You can always prep it with some midi - In ready-ness for a bounce..Quite an inconvenience to say the least - and would be fantastic if someone fixed it up for purchasing it.. Potentially could be an all time great vst. Free money for a dev 10 minutes work probably.

This vst is definitely good for DnB and hiphop artists. I'd recommend this one personally.

Why with my midi keyboard it generates reverse samples at random when i use it?

A bit late to the party but in any case it is due to the velocity- I don't remember off hand but play it at a low velocity and it will play normal. If you are going lightly and it is still producing the issue, try checking what velocity message is being sent to the daw or just alter/draw the notes in and make it a lower velocity.

Clarification: You still have to do your own midi drum sequencing. This is mainly a convenience in that it all ready has the hits sliced and assigned to midi notes and has a few sound effects available for the output. If it also had a midi pattern randomizer you could preview and then save as a preset, it would be much more useful.

This was refereshing to find. a lot of fun to mess around with. but the fun was short lived once I started getting the error "Timeout during suspend()". almost cant even recommend it because of the inconvenience the error brings. otherwise 5/5

Absolutely amazing (especially with effect VSTS) and pretty much blew me away when I first used it, but only a few minutes later, now it's returning "Timeout during suspend()" errors whenever I open FL Studio 20 projects with it, or even if I just place it in a project. Almost lost an entire project and lost a project I was starting up.

Using Amen break in commercial projects without clearance is illegal these days, so be careful uploading tracks made with this rompler. The plugin itself is somewhat unstable and prone to crashes. Seems like it requires proper tweaking at different DAWs.

The person which did the amen break, died on the streets not even knowing about the impact which his break made on the industry. You are retarded to care about superficial licences.

Literally no one ever has licensed amen breakbeats in their songs because so many people have used it

Actually, although the plug-in may be of limited use, I think it works well for its purpose- You can really create endless beat variations with the sounds contained in it. They will sound real, and very professional. Recommended if you like making aggressive breakbeat music.

Meh, you can't load other samples, I figured you could. It's just got the amen break sample. Not very versatile. But if thats what you want, then it works fine with very little cpu usage..... If you could load other samples or it had a bunch of different ones, it would be friggin' awesome.

I agree mostly, but the Amen break is the definitive sound of old breakbeat. The whole genre ran on samples from the same song for decades, so I guess the lack of option is on purpose.

You can load your own samples in.

No, you can't load your own samples natively, only by way of hacking but success isn't guaranteed
