Shot is a one-shot sample player with a humanizer that adds an organic feel to mechanical beat sequences. The humanizer randomizes three parameters timing, velocity, and pitch.

User Interface
  • File Selector & Scope
    • The file Selector selects the sample file and displays the file name. To select the sample file, click the triangle on the right side.
    • The scope displays the sample waveform. You can also load the sample by drop the sample file into the scope.
    • Supported file formats: .wav, .aif, .aiff
    • Maximum sample length: 1,000,000 samples
  • Randomizer Section
    • In the randomizer section, you can adjust three randomizable parameters, delay, velocity, and pitch.
      The actual values of these three parameters are randomly selected for each note-on within the selected range.
    • The delay slider adjusts the delay time range of note-on messages.
    • The velocity slider adjusts the velocity randomizer range.
      The value randomly selected within this range is added to the original velocity.
    • The pitch slider adjusts the pitch randomizer range in cents.
    • The velocity and pitch parameters are bipolar. When the slider value is set to 10, the actual value is randomly selected between -10 and 10.
      To widen the range of these two parameters, drag up. To narrow, drag down.
    • The circle button on the top left toggles the randomizer section on and off.
  • Global Section
    • In the global section, you can adjust transpose, detune, and volume.
      These three parameters are static, not randomized.
    • The transpose slider adjusts the pitch in semitones.
    • The detune slider adjusts the pitch in cents.
    • The volume knob adjusts the output volume.
