It’s a good question!
What I was really after was a ‘drawer of groovy shapes’. The kind of shapes you see in the MindMeld Drums > Noise Grooves presets, or the Grooves presets from Circadian Sounds, Jakub and Eurikon - just moooore of them. The Gatekeeper VST has hundreds of amazing groovy shapes included and I was really looking for someone who could make some presets along those lines (but not the same of course).
However asking for a ‘drawer of groovy shapes’ might have been a bit weird before people knew that ShapeMaster existed and would have probably led to questions I didn’t want to answer in public at that stage… so I asked for percussionists as they would most likely have an understanding of grooves and I could tell them more once they were sworn to secrecy.
While the search initially looked promising, unfortunately it didn’t get anywhere in the end.
Now that ShapeMaster is out, I can say that we would still be interested to hear from drawers of original groovy shapes, so if you fancy yourself as a groovy shape drawer, and would like to see your groovy shapes included in the Community Presets/Shapes section of ShapeMaster, please get in touch!
This is the kind of thing I was looking for:
