Direct, straightforward, no frills and no bloat!

Poise makes working with drum samples quick and effortless, allowing you to focus on creating music.

Poise features 16 drum pads, which can each use 8 samples. Sample layers have parameters for pitch, volume and balance, as well as amplitude and pitch envelopes. There are several sample switching types including random, velocity and round-robin.
