... WAV, AIF, LM4, SF2, AKAI, HALion, Gig
VSampler owners have the entire range of existing sound libraries at their
disposal right away. Additionally to it's own format, VSampler 3 loads samples
(WAV, AIF) and drumkits (LM4™) as well as the industry standard formats SF2™,
Gigasampler™, HALion™, AKAI™ S1000/S3000 CD and AKAI™ S5000/S6000 .AKP files.
VSampler's unique instrument preview with it's autoload function takes the
difficulty out of searching for the right sound; you can test different sounds
with a single mouse-click on-the-fly during playback. Before importing the
instrument, you can hear how it will actually sound in the song. If you like it,
just double-click to import it, or continue testing other instruments by
stepping to the next one by cursor keys or mouse - there's no easier and quicker
way. Very practical for everyday use is the Import Rack, which recalls the last
used location for each file type separately.
VSamplers integrated soundbank-manager with search function and category
filter offers unique comfort for the administration of extensive sound
libraries. Each instrument of the soundbank-manager can be loaded to a
MIDI-channel with a single mouse-click.
... AKAI™ CDs 1:1 on harddisk
VSampler offers users of AKAI™ S1000/S3000 CD's 100%-future
compatiblity by building a 1:1 copy of the CD as disc image file at your
local harddisk or network. No more time consuming conversion into one or
even multiple sampler-specific formats. The AKAI™ CD fully retains its
best feature - the compatibility with all existing samplers*. VSampler
loads the instruments directly from the disc image and handles them the
same way as any other soundbank format. Without having to change CD's, you
can scroll through your AKAI™ CD-collection in the soundbank-manager,
enjoying the VSampler-typical comfort of the autoload-feature, testing
different sounds with a single mouse-click on-the-fly during playback.
