Review by Sound Bytes Net Music Magazine / Free Sample Pack

2016/12/01 Rob Mitchell from Sound Bytes magazine has just reviewed SampleRobot 5 Pro. We are very glad that he appreciates the application and the workflow.

If you like the sounds of retro arcade games, there is a free download for you at the end of the review. You can download a full bank of arcade-type sounds taken from the vintage classic synthesizer Roland SH-101. If you need laser fire and explosions as ring tones for your cell, here you go.

Here are some quotes from Rob's review.

"SampleRobot takes away the tedious part of the sampling process, quite simple and fun to work with."

"It definitely can save you a lot of time. I really enjoyed using SampleRobot, and I also believe anyone that is into sampling will find it interesting to work with and easy to use."

"After loading up my test-run SFZ file that SampleRobot created into Dimension Pro, it worked like a charm."

"WaveRobot: Its large display makes it easy to use. Automatic Loop recognition is available, and it finds the best duration and loop settings for you."

Thanks to Rob and the Sound Bytes team!

Xpander for the Masses / Delamar Review

2016/08/01 It is time for summer holiday and here comes a free download for all sample junkies. This is a special monophonic sound from the vintage classic Oberheim Xpander synthesizer (American revision) captured by SampleRobot. If you play this multi-sample with a software sampler polyphonically you will get the idea how good the Xpander sounds. SampleRobot sampled all sound nuances and even the dynamics in the articulation. Check the quality of SampleRobot's automatic multi-sampling engine, load the following Soundfont 2 file into your software sampler and play the Original!

Oberheim Xpander Dynamite SKY Soundfont 2

Author Felix Baarß from German web music magazine delamar recently reviewed SampleRobot 5 Pro.

"Support of additional export formats is highly appreciated, Skylife ramped up tidily."

"Here we have a highly complex and also powerful application to create sound libraries out of electronic sound sources."

"This is a must-have for all who would like to create big sample-based (multi-)instruments for various formats."

SampleRobot 5 Pro is rated with VERY GOOD, 4.5 stars out of 5. Thanks to Felix and the delamar team!

Read the full review in German on delamar's website.

We will be back later in September with the new release of SampleRobot 5 Multi-X. Have a nice summer holiday!
