New Awave Studio 11 supports multiple new sampler formats and is contained in the SampleRobot Sampling Suite now. When it comes to sample format conversion nobody can beat Awave Studio. Together with SampleRobot this package is the Swiss Army Knife for all sampling adventures.

KEYS Personal Samples - SampleRobot in continuous Operation


2014/01/16 We hope you had a good start in 2014. In the current issue of German KEYS magazine author Lars Bohn explains how he creates the KEYS Personal Samples which have become a crucial part of each new issue. For about one and a half year he contributes high quality multi-sampled instruments on a monthy base. For the sampling process Lars uses SampleRobot.

"If you are sampling a sound source like the Nord Lead 3 which supports MIDI, SampleRobot takes control of the instrument to elict a bunch of individual samples. So the sampling is fully automated."

Another important part during sampling is getting the best loops for each sample.

"A big help is the application SKYLIFE WaveRobot when it comes to arduous loop programming by hand. It can be used inside of SampleRobot."

Lars appreciates some practical functions of WaveRobot.

"If you have found optimum loop settings for one sample you can use those settings with the 'Auto-Loop for All' function as a template for the automatic loop search of all single samples contained in one sound. Very useful." 

We would like to thank Lars Bohn for providing all users with wonderful samples and we are looking forward to the upcoming instruments!
