SKYLIFE has released a new update for their sampling applications SampleRobot Pro, Multi-X, Korg+Wave and SampleRobot Montage. This is the story in their own words...
With version 6.1 SampleRobot Pro and SampleRobot Montage users will benefit from a major feature which is the new VST host. For the first time in the history of SampleRobot you can directly load your virtual instruments inside SampleRobot and connect them digitally for automatic sampling. There is also a new audio monitoring function included so that plugins are audible during the sampling process.
This feature is work in progress. SKYLIFE decided to offer the current status as a beta feature to the SampleRobot community. At the moment only VST2 instruments can be loaded but it is planned to expand the host functionality also to VST3 and AU standard in an upcoming update.
A gentle note from the SampleRobot developers: Please respect the copyright whatever you sample. It takes a long time to design plugins and preset sounds and it is a highly creative process. Make sure you own the plugins you sample. Don't rip off someone's interlectual property. Be creative and design your own sounds for sampling!
Optimized project structure and overview
Version 6.1 update includes optimizations that are also available for SampleRobot Multi-X and SampleRobot Korg+Wave. The new context-sensitive color coding makes it a lot easier to navigate through projects, multisamples and samples. Fast browsing is supported by dedicated shortcuts.
Big screens and 16:9
Since screens are still getting bigger and bigger SKYLIFE optimized SampleRobot for version 6.1 so that users can run the application very comfortably even on the biggest 4K screens with various aspect ratios like 4:3, 16:9 and 21:9. When using multiple screens one can drag elements from the graphical user interface like e.g. the peak meter simply to another screen to optimize the overview in the sampling session. Best of all, SampleRobot 6.1 is free for all users of version 6.
