Short Circuit 2 was created as a
reaction against the ongoing trend where software

instrument in its own right, and not just a way to
emulate other instruments. It has been a very high
priority to make sure that adding and editing

allow you to place samples directly at the highest
level of the multi, without having to deal with
instrument hierarchies and patches. Want to add a

into Short Circuit 2 and you're ready to go. Samples
can be put in groups for multi-sampling and
kit-building, but the complexity is only there when

Powerful modulation system, with the ability
to modulate itself as well as
loop-points in addition to the usual
