SKYLIFE SampleRobot Montage now available

2018/08/22 It's launch time! We are very glad that SKYLIFE SampleRobot Montage has been released by Yamaha for all Montage users. SampleRobot Montage samples every sound that you can ever imagine (especially instruments) and turns them into directly playable performances on the Montage either in user bank or library format.

SampleRobot Montage is now available as download via the Yamaha Music Soft website.

Here is a short video tutorial that shows the basic workflow of SampleRobot Montage.

Happy sampling!


SampleRobot Montage available mid of August

2018/07/01 We would like to give you the best user experience when downloading and activating SampleRobot Montage. Therefore we have rescheduled our release date for SampleRobot Montage to mid of August. The launch of SampleRobot Pro will follow shortly.

Unlike with earlier versions of SampleRobot you don't have to enter challenge and response codes manually any longer. The activation process is now fully automatic which saves a lot of time and also avoids activation problems due to code mistyping.

SampleRobot Montage comes with a new operation manual and an optimized Project Wizard, so that you can immediately start recording sophisticated sampling projects. SampleRobot Montage allows you to export Performances in Montage Library and User Bank format that include up to 8 velocity layers.

The download of SampleRobot Montage will be available from the official Yamaha Music website. To register you need a valid Yamaha Montage serial number.

We'll post the direct link as soon as SampleRobot Montage is available for download.


SKYLIFE announces new SampleRobot 6 line-up

2018/04/21 We are very glad to announce a completely new version of SampleRobot. Even if not produced by the Tyrell Corporation our 6th generation SampleRobot is more human than human and offers state-of-the-art features for professional sampling and instrument cloning projects.

Top of the line is SampleRobot 6 Pro including the loop and transient editor WaveRobot 6, both designed for professional musicians and sound library developers. SampleRobot 6 Multi-X offers a lot of functions of his big brother at a reasonable price. WaveRobot 6 can be added as an option. SampleRobot 6 Korg+Wave is like SampleRobot 6 Multi-X but offers only Korg formats and Wave as sample export.

The upcoming SampleRobot 6 product line is not just a simple update of existing products but it is fully redesigned using an optimized code-base and offering a new user experience. For the first time SampleRobot will be available without the usage of the Wine framework under OSX which means faster response, optimized file handling and native Core Audio support of multi-I/O interfaces.

SampleRobot 6 comes with a modular graphical user interface. Sections can be extended, dragged to any areas of your working screen and can snap back to the dock. The main working screen is the big WaveRobot window that offers a high-resolution sample display and transient and loop editing with sample-accurate precision. Even with complex Projects containing several multisample layers you'll never lose the overview. You can easily scroll through the new Samples list window to instantly show the dedicated waveform and all relevant informations.

SampleRobot 6 Pro and Multi-X even extend the huge sample format support with new exports like Yamaha MONTAGE and Synthstrom deluge.

The SampleRobot 6 line-up is planned to be released end of August, prices as follows.

SampleRobot 6 Pro (incl. WaveRobot) - 299 $ / 249 € / 219 £
SampleRobot 6 Multi-X (incl. WaveRobot) - 199 $ / 169 € / 149 £
SampleRobot 6 Korg+Wave (incl. WaveRobot) - 99 $ / 79 € / 69 £

If you order SampleRobot 5 products in the SKYLIFE STORE now you will receive an upgrade to the dedicated version 6 free of charge as soon as it's available.


FM Sampling / Musikmesse 2018

2018/03/26 Did you know that AudioKit Pro used SampleRobot to sample all the legendary YAMAHA DX and TX sounds that you can experience with FM Player?

Here is what Matthew Fecher, maker of the FM Player and Director of Product for AudioKit Pro, thinks about SampleRobot: "SampleRobot is absolutely essential to my music and development process. We couldn't have built the award-wining FM Player iPad app without SampleRobot. Thanks!"

It is with great pleasure for us as well that SampleRobot could contribute to this wonderful project. If you own an iPad and have not yet downloaded FM Player, we highly recommend playing this amazing instrument. It's a lot of fun and it can be downloaded free of charge on the App Store. If you would like to create your own playable instruments from samples created by SampleRobot have a look at AudioKit Pro's open-source library for building your very own virtual instruments. Amazing!

Will you attend Musikmesse in Frankfurt from April 11th till 14th? If so, we would be glad to meet you there. Please come by the YAMAHA booth where we will show the SampleRobot MONTAGE Edition. This is a special adaption of SampleRobot suitable for all YAMAHA MONTAGE users. With SampleRobot MONTAGE Edition you can use all the sophisticated automatic sampling features of SampleRobot and transfer your samples directly in MONTAGE format. Of course we will be in Frankfurt also to answer your questions regarding SampleRobot. Hope to see you there!
