Black Magic Lite

Black Magic Lite is a loop generator.

With the ability to quickly randomize and save out looped WAVs, the Black Magic machines make building a unique sample collection easy and quick. Even though Lite has fewer features than the big version, all of the important ones have been retained, so it is a fully functional synth in it's own right.

I keep coming back to this to figure it out and make some progress. It gets better each time and it is a very worthwhile plugin. A bit complex but quite unique.

I just got this plugin, so I can't comment much on how good it is, but it does work. Sending a MIDI note to its track will trigger drum samples, and it will automatically create loops in your project's tempo. In the middle of the GUI, see the field "01-Bass Drums"; left click that to pick from different sample banks. Then just right of that, you can pick individual sounds, or click the "R' button to randomize the sound. It seems pretty powerful but it makes my DAW lag a lot before starting playback. I'll probably only use it to make samples and then use some other tool (like shortcircuit, also on this site) to play the samples. Hats off to the site admins... I've been enjoying the resources on here (and VST4Free, when that existed) since about 2009. Great site!

I couldn't get this to work at all. It crashes Audacity when you try to enable to the plugin. The instructions are woeful. I even tried downloading it from the official site. No luck.

Unable to load in FL Studio 12.4 on WIN10. Crashes the DAW. Manual/help file could not be read properly. Would appreciate if developer provided a fix, otherwise it will be rather poor advertising for the paid version.

How do the hell do you get this to work? Thats over two hours of my life I won't get back, scouring forums and installing and reinstalling this thing, its suppose to make sounds right of the bat, but nothing, nada. I have come to the conclusion that the 'lite' version does not work on Win7-64bit. But it's currently on sale for over 50bucks on the HG sounds website, it must work, surely...?
