One common request from existing DrumSpillage users was a new system for browsing kit presets. The previous solution did allow you to preview kits directly from the OS X file browser but version 1.4 now introduces a new and improved preset browser menu.
Download the demo version here and try the new preset browser:

Easy Access Preset Kit Menu
DrumSpillage will now scan the main preset kit folder and build a menu of any subfolders containing kits it finds there.
The root folder path is: /Library/Audio/Presets/AudioSpillage/DrumSpillageKits
For easy access to your own custom kits we suggest creating a folder in the root kit folder and copying your kits to it.
To scroll though an entire folder of kits simply load a kit and use the left/right arrows to cycle through the kits in that folder. The same technique also applies to pads. Simply load a pad and use the left/right arrows to cycle through the current folder. DrumSpillage doesn’t currently build a menu structure for preset pads.
The ‘fine grain’ modifier key has been changed from Shift(⇧) to Command(⌘) whilst the ‘snap to default’ modifier key has been changed from Command(⌘) to Alt(⌥). This helps improve compatibility across multiple hosts.
