This one looks very interesting. Uses the same concept of synplant in that it will synthesize any sample you import, but for drums, plus a bunch of further manipulation to the sound beyond the original sample.

Interesting. Looks like some spectral sampler, which can smear out some stuff in the spectrum and also blend two sources. Also the UI is nice.

I think there are already a few spectral modification samplers out there, but i dont think they have a morph/fade/blend/whatever thing...

One of those devs already made a spectral morphing synth in the past:

Both also worked for Reason Studios in the past (german only):

It's not using samples. As developer said, everything we hear is synthesized with audio file reference.

Yea, sure. But it needs samples as a source.

To me "audio file reference" seems to be just a fancy way of not saying "sample".

Install file is just 3mb. And when you go to install folder there you'll find a library of tiny files with programs specific extenion. They are clearly named as usual kick, snares, hihat's, you find in your libraries, but they really seem more like preset files rather then audio files...at least if you look at it by size. But I wonder, what kind of reference files are those? It seems the program is not starting with a loaded .wav and them mangles it with pitch stretch and in between. I quite liked the demo.

That's because this doesn't playback samples. Instead, when you import a sample it will resynthesize it and then what you hear when you play is not the audio sample. You can then do things to the sound which you couldn't do with a sample and shape it and modulate it however you like. Like synplant 2 does with monophonic instruments, but for drums.
