Beatboxing-to-MIDI with a VST plugin

Billaboop is an experimental VST plugin that takes human beatboxing and turns it into MIDI drum patterns. Sure, the interface isn't pretty, and the sound samples (original on the left, MIDI on the right) aren't totally convincing, and it only works in Plogue Bidule ("Do not try to load the plug-in into Cubase or Logic, it may harm your computer!")... BUT, wouldn't it be cool if it worked? I've always liked the idea of humming and beatboxing your whole track into the computer, then gradually replacing all the ideas with instruments, though I never got round to actually doing it. I suspect that KT DrumTrigger, Drumagog and the soon-to-be-reviewed-by-me Guru can all do a similar thing.
