Platinum Samples Releases Accent 1.0.2

https://youtu.be/46QB5I2QjYs
We are proud to announce that Platinum Samples has updated Accent to version 1.0.2
New Features
 
  • Accent now ships with a standalone version
  • Preset load times are now some of the fastest on the market
  • Added Velocity Curve presets for Kit pieces (or for each of their articulations). You can also save these curves into a midi map and recall them at any time
  • External 3rd party plug-ins now have a built in preset manager, so you can save your favorite settings and recall them as needed or A-B between presets
  • You can now bypass plug-ins in two separate ways from the Mixer. To bypass a single plug-in use Command (macOS) or Control (Windows) while clicking on the plug in insert. To bypass all plug-ins on a mixer channel use Command + Option (macOS) or Control + ALT  (Windows)
  • Added a Hi-Hat Fade Out Factor. This allows you to decide how all Hi-Hat articulations blend into each other
  • Added multi-out capability to the Audio Units plug-in format
  • Accent now supports all major plug-in formats: AAX, VST2, VST3, and Audio Units
  • Added an all new playback algorithm for even more realistic performances
  • Grooves can now be set to half time, double time, dotted, triplet, or double triplet feels
  • Accent has been streamlined and optimized to improve start-up times and overall performance
  • Platinum Samples have updated their groove libraries for Accent. Existing owners will find them in their Platinum Samples user account*

 

Here at Space Cabin Audio we have also included an updated groove library to help show off this new version of Accent. We have added in over 400 new grooves.

This update is free to all existing users.

For a limited time, you can purchase Galaxy Drums for the discounted price of $99 to help celebrate this incredible update.
This update is available at Space Cabin Audio – Trend Setting Virtual Instrument Software
Quotes from real users:
Miguel Ruiz
Best drum VI that I've used, and I've tried quite a bit. The drums sound awesome and it has the best cymbals by far.
Ken Burke
The best drum software I have used. Worth the money. Using plug ins inside the mixer is DA BOMB! Thank you Galaxy Drums. Can't wait for the next release!

*Except for Real Jazz and Real Reggae

May the music move you.

    The lack of support and product development for this has pretty
    well killed it.

    Hi cclarry, I am sorry you feel that way.   As for content, our second library is coming soon (Desert Drums) which are throwback 60's style kits.  We recorded it using two Vintage Rogers kits in 2 different rooms.  We are also in the planning stages of the 3rd and 4th libraries.  So content is coming.  If you own Accent I urge you try this update.  I think it will shock you at how far Accent has come in such a short time.  You can also always email us anytime with any questions.

    I've had it since Launch.  It sits on my hard drive and never
    gets touched.  The lack of updates, and expansions has
    been appalling.  I know that's not your fault, but we are
    OCD.  If it doesn't get regular support and expansions, all
    interest dies.  And, when competing with what's out there,
    there is no competition really...sorry to say.

    We've been in development of version 1.0.2 for over a year and it was a major update (moving from JUCE 4.x to JUCE 5.x) and dramatically improved the performance as well as created a loss free data format to reduce the sample size at the same time.... as well as adding a bunch of new features requested by our beta testers.
     
    We are also hard at work finalizing the porting of our existing libraries.
     
    I also believe we've responded timely to all tech support requests -- let me know if you have any outstanding support issues which aren't addressed in this update.
     
    Our support emails are available at: https://www.platinumsamples.com/Contacts.php
     
    Thanks,

    Thanks for your thoughts.  I think you will see a lot more content coming.  I agree, content is king.  It is my personal goal to fill that gap.  I know that Rail is also finalizing the porting of his libraries, and with this update, all his midi with the exception of Real Jazz and Real Reggae is also available.

    Well I went and found my receipt.  I purchased 
    this in June of 2016.  There was one update before
    this one.  There has been ONE, count 'em, ONE
    expansion, since release over 2 years ago.

    Sorry, that's a pretty sad statement for the product line...
    and I don't think, in this case, that "better late than never"
    can be applied.

    I had high hopes when purchasing...those were dashed.
    The $50 transfer is fee is also a deal breaker for anyone
    who would even remotely be interested, even now.

    That's just my opinion, but I know many who feel the same
    way.

    I am a fan of platinum samples kits for certain but what was a little turn of for me was buying the space cabin drums at the launch discount price and then seeing it for less several weeks later. That type of thing is going to make me hold off on new kits until the real sale is.

    As BFD development has slowed if not stopped, I will keep my eye on Accent as Platinum Samples content is great.

    Maybe I missed it but it would be helpful to keep the users in the loop as to roadmaps etc.

    I really like PS kits for Session Drummer 3. Purchased them all. For some reason cannot login to my PS account. Is the site under some maintenance? Also, I don't see Accent Drums on the PS site. Really hope the company will back, alive and kicking, bringing us some high quality goodies.

    I completely understand your concerns and will work tirelessly to help change that. I am huge believer in what Accent can do.  I just finished a mix that I could not have done in other software, and I own them all.  It's why I started this in the first place.  Like you, I have OCD about MORE DRUMS:)  It is my goal to help bring Accent to the forefront of Drum VI's.

    Hi Gmon, our policy is that all users that ever bought one of our kits will receive the next kit they purchase at the lowest price point.  We have a one day "Canadian" Black Friday sale which is the lowest price we will ever offer and once you are part of the SCA family, that is the price you will pay for all future kits.  We are also working on other loyalty based products.  With Galaxy we expanded the groove library and updated it extensively.  We also added the updated version of Accent at no charge.  It is my goal to provide the best possible customer service, and while sometimes things don't go as planned, I always do my best to make sure we do everything possible to keep people happy.  If you need any assistance please feel free to reach out to us at any time. We are always available.

    Here is an audio demo of Galaxy Drums inside of Accent 1.0.2.  The beat is from our updated groove library and was a simple drag and drop into the timeline. Accent 1.0.2 and the groove library is a free update to all existing users.
