I love this machine. Sounds fantastic and unique. Not another 808 - 909... something altogether different and wonderful. As with all of DLM plugs, lots of random things happen(probability knob and stutter button plus multiple sample banks). Expect the unexpected and you will not be disappointed. Think Cr-78 meets Kr-55 meets robodrum meets ms-20 meets the drum box on grandma's organ when you were a kid- melt it all together and this is it...

It looks good but I have a problem, I can't control the sounds, I mean, I want to hear different instruments in each key but I only can play 4 instruments because two keys plays the same instrument. I only can hear the another select instrument if I turn on the switch button but in that case it plays randomly the instrument in any of two keys.

Same here.. installed like any other plugin in Reaper.. preserved folder structure in zip like the readme pdf says to.. record button active, track record monitoring is on, input set to MIDI-->All Channels. Most importantly, other VSTi's are working.
