It's long overdue that I revise my initial statements now that AudioSpillage has accounted for my initial concerns. Mini IS a great go-to if you want to put a lot of care into your kick, which is practically a fetish production demand in the dance realm. The reason I like it is that they addressed my overhead issues, and you can strip away any filter or oscillator that you are not using.

There are some new license options for the sequel of mini, and by all means check out the big brother version, DrumSpillage if you want a full kit and don't want to embark on the race to hoard countless samples that would otherwise sop up the corners of your hard drive.

This admittedly is an impression based on incomplete information, as I didn't put my hands on the full version. Minispillage is a plug-in instrument audio unit or VSTi, that uses synthesized percussion and attacks. For anyone who does not want to enter the "sample race", buying and collecting libraries willy-nilly, synthesis offers you another strategy, keeping firm grip on the qualitative decisions you make as a musician/orchestrator.

This mini version leans more on the retro sound to begin with, and most likely will not replace your favorite kit. That's why it's a bit difficult for me to evaluate its final price tag should you wish to get the full version. It is meant to give you a sound check to the synthesis engine, and to discern whether you really want the full kit.

Another reason to go synth over sample is improved responsiveness and decreased CPU and RAM overhead of your sessions. If I recall, the native plugins, simpler and ableton's drum rack both placed less CPU burden, and subsequently less latency on my sessions than did mini-spillage. I'd really like to see mini-spillage re-released as a drum kick replacer, more robust in parameters, more stable, while dropping synthesis for wood block, snare etc. Then people could really put it through the ringer.

Thanks for the feedback Braduro. Most drum synths will tax the CPU more than a sample playback device due to the complexity of the algorithms involved. Hover you are correct about the vastly reduced RAM and storage requirements!
