Created to simplify and accelerate the process of sampling, SampleRobot for Windows provides automatic sampling of electronic instruments that can be triggered via MIDI, but can also be used for sampling acoustic instruments.
If there are MIDI connections available on the instrument, SampleRobot will send out MIDI note messages and controller information, note by note. The external device gets the MIDI information and plays back the sounds. At the same time SampleRobot is in audio recording mode. Just a few mouse clicks and a fully detailed sampled synthesizer with all internal sound programs is on your hard drive ready to be played with a software sampler. SampleRobot is also equipped with half automatic recording functions for sampling of acoustic instruments.
All procedures like sending MIDI note on and off, program change, audio recording, naming, editing, audio fade calculation, loop creation, multi sample mapping, and export are executed fully automatically. SampleRobot is designed to work practically completely on its own while the user keeps full control of all parameters manually. The sampling engine is non destructive. Complex multi sample recordings can now be done in a jiffy. SampleRobot can create, arrange and archive whole projects full of multi sample layers.
SampleRobot is planned for release in mid-April 2005. Anticipated price will be 249, - Euro (330 US $).
