SampleRobot 6 Pro Now Available For Mac & Windows

Developer Christian Halten let us know that SKYLIFE has released SampleRobot 6 Pro, the latest version of the application, designed to automate sampling and sample editing.

It’s also available for the first time as a native macOS application.

Here’s what he has to say about it:

SampleRobot 6 Pro has been redesigned from the ground up to offer users a new sampling experience.

The loop and transient editor WaveRobot has become the central part of the new modular graphical user interface. Sections can be pulled out of the dock and placed anywhere on the working screen(s).

  1. I’ve always been an Autosampler user, so I can’t speak to SampleRobot, but its value depends on how much you really sample. I saved a pile of sounds so I could just click on them in Logic’s ESX24 sampler. It can be especially useful if you do a lot of semi-modular experimentation with some hybrid beast so you can save the happy-accident patches that can pop up. You can easily use both of these with any MIDI-equipped keyboard and have a usable patch rendered in no time. Nord offers users a free editor that allows you to turn your WAVs into Nord-formatted sounds, as well as a good sound manager. It takes a meaningful amount of work to massage samples into shape, but its worked well for me. You can also borrow all of your friends’ gear to sample until all you do is slobber over it in the dark like Gollum, so watch out for that.

    1. Thanks for the info. As SampleRobot can export SoundFont SFZ files and ESX24 can read those, that should be pretty useful.

      They appear to have special support for the Montage (and probably MODX) and KORG Volca. But no mention of NORD and I don’t believe the NORD Sound Manager can import SoundFonts (sadly).

      But I’ve read the entire user manual and there’s no list of the formats supported, nor is there anything in the FAQ. Not very helpful IMO if you’re trying to work out whether to buy…
