GanGsta is a drum sampler with 5 .wav slots, including a 374 .wav samples library.

Despite only having 5 .wav sounds per patch, this instrument has a wide range of drum effects configuration. Each of these slots are gifted of 3 pitch modes:
  • Fine (+3/-3 octs), where you may tune freely.
  • Octave Snap (+3/-3 octs), where you may snap each octave.
  • Semi snap (11 note range), where you may tune the semitones.
Every slot has a Forward/Reverse option, a Loop option that will repeat the sample over the note size in the piano roll of your DAW, Stereo Widening option that will spread the sample into a big wide range, ADSR Amp Envelope control and Filter (LP/BP/HP/Notch) with Mix control.

It was introduced a Tempo Sync LFO that can be connected to Pan, Filter or both, with a range of 4 Bars to 1/4 including dotted and triplets. This Sync LFO is also gifted of 3 waveforms (Sine/Triangle/Ramp) and Release Sync option that syncs the way waveforms are used. All samples may have connected an independent Stereo Delay effect with both Right and Left gains, free or sync delay from 4 bars to 1/16 including dotted and triplets, and an independent Reverb with Size and Mix Presence control.

The 5 slots can be globally connected to 4 different effects: Flanger, Chorus, Distortion, Compressor. These are Global effects, meaning that the values on these effects are just one for every slot, but despite of this effects being global, and each value is the same value to every slot connected to them, the possibilities of performing great percussive effected loops are high. The Pad Cells can be MIDI controlled if you wish to trigger shot sounds through a pad launcher, and patch change can also be MIDI controlled.

GanGsta brings 374 .wav samples in the Sample Bank that can be found in the installation folder, Loads/Saves .fxb Banks and has a range of 64 patch presets.

I use it as a regular sampler in Psycle and it's very good. Built-in FX are nice and can be useful. The only issue is I always have to tweak samples' pitch a bit to make them sound properly.
