I’ve had some more time to spend with H5 this weekend and yes, small (well, in appearance anyways) add-ins, like the new MIDI Module BeatBox is fantastic. It simply takes me back to the drum machine years and it is SO easy to create your own and any which way you want them too. With the engine flexibility of HALion, this makes BB one of the coolest new little toys in a long time.
I really only play with it (BB), in terms of the new features. I had originally intended to get into the grain oscillator, but I got completely blown away with the hidden similarity between BB and traditional drum machines, and so I got stuck there basically all Saturday, making beats and importing samples from the old drum machines. Ingenious thing this MIDI Module!
