Rayzoon Jamstix updated to version 2.1.4

The virtual drummer VSTi form Rayzoon has been updated to version 2.1.4. Together with this update Rayzoon has released first Jamstix 2 expansion called MetalPak.

Modern Metal Kit Sound:
* brand-new 275MB kit using Gretsch Renown Maple drums and AA/AAX cymbals
* aggressive hats, tight and punchy kick plus an alternate Porkpie snare
* single output and multi-output kits with ready-to-go Jamstix EQ and compression settings
* can be used with any other Jamstix 2 style, e-drumkits or traditionally via MIDI by the host

Five Metal Styles:
* CUSTOM METAL – hand-edit the desired kick/snare pattern and leave the rest up to Jamstix
* DIAL-A-METAL – morphs the groove from half-time all the way to 16th double-bass/quarter snares
* NU METAL – perfect for mainstream nu-metal performances with simple groove controls
* PROG METAL – this one can make a 4/4 sound like an odd (korny?) time signature!
* THRASH METAL – morphs the groove from half-time to double-time madness

Six Metal Drummers:

* Jamstix 2.1.4 or higher
* 300MB free hard drive space

Update improvements for Jamstix version 2.1.4:
* added ‘Add Tom Groove’ to the brain menu, which allows adding an accentuated 16th tom rhythm with a variety of options
* bar editor limb menu ‘Clear Entire Limb’ is now available per bar, part or the whole song
* added ability to store up to ten revisions for easy undo, manually or via auto-save feature
* added ‘Control Only Current Part’ option to brain menu. If unchecked, MIDI controllers affect all parts that have appropriate mappings, not just the current part
* removed JS1 sound references from several kits and fixed incorrect kick drum reference in one kit
* added new options to ‘Copy’ submenu of the part menu that allow propagating the style or drummer of a part to all other parts of the song
* fixed some subhosted drum modules playing with wrong pitch if project sample frequency is not 44.1 kHz
* routing sounds to ‘All’ now randomly selects new sounds
* jamstix2.ini file now supports HiHatController=x setting in subhost sections so that sound modules that use a MIDI controller other than 4 for hihat openness can be supported.
* when saving a part, the default filename is automatically set to the name of the part
* improved scaling of brain bitmap backgrounds
* JS2 will now automatically use CC4 continuous hihat control with DFHS and EZDrummer without ini entry
* the cell editor and the bar editor drag&drop functions are now consistently blocked if the bar is locked
* various modifications to support MetalPak
* improved e-drum CC4 behavior for certain drum kits
