Skylife have been in touch to tell us that all SampleRobot and WaveRobot products are now available in version 3.01. SampleRobot 3 Essentials is the newly-available base version for all sampling purposes. WaveRobot 3 offers special functions for audio loop editing.
With SampleRobot 3 musicians can create their own virtual musical instruments as well as sound and loop libraries very easily. SampleRobot 3 offers cutting-edge sampling technology. It includes Cakewalk’s Dimension LE software sampler, which is connected via a clever export bridge: SampleRobot’s exports automatically show up in the preset-browser of Dimension LE and can be played instantly as virtual instruments in any VST-host environment. Skylife say that building high quality instruments was never easier. SampleRobot 3 also contains the loop editing software WaveRobot 3. Furthermore SampleRobot 3 comes with more than 1080 MB of premium multi-samples taken from famous synthesizers in Soundfont2 format.
