Composer and developer Christian Halten let us know that he’s released SampleRobot 6 Multi-X and a new trial version of the automated ‘sampling assistant’.
SampleRobot 6 Multi-X is the entry-level version of SKYLIFE’s SampleRobot 6 Pro. Multi-X stands for multi export. and the app offers a huge range of different multisampling formats for various software and hardware instruments.
Compared to SampleRobot 6 Pro, which includes 24 bit resolution sample export and also some advanced Midi features like the monitor and support for continuous controllers, SampleRobot 6 Multi-X offers 16 bit export resolution and basic Midi remote control.\
Users can start the sampling sessions with SampleRobot 6 Multi-X and crossgrade at a later time to SampleRobot 6 Pro if these features are needed. All project files are compatible between both versions.
New features in SampleRobot 6 Multi-X:
- Modular graphical user interface.
- Integrated central WaveRobot loop and transient editor.
- Native MacOS and Windows 10 support.
- Large-scale Midi monitor.
- Floating Peak Meter.
- Context-sensitive Project hierarchy.
- Sample list for easy browsing and searching.
- Library and user bank export for Yamaha Montage.
- Optimized activation process.
- Fast sampling process.
- Fully automated workflow.
- Sample export for many software and hardware samplers.
- Intuitive Project assistant.
- Sophisticated auto-loop processing, transient recognition and sample editing.
- Many loop and crossfade types including auto-gain crossfades.
- Over 800 MB premium multisamples taken from classic synthesizers included.
Pricing and Availability
SampleRobot 6 Multi-X is available now for US $195. Upgrade pricing and a trial version are also available.

The 16 bit only “feature” for 169€ is a big fail IMO.
It should cost something like 99€, no more.
Hopefully, this will be sorted as they could surely gain FULL version customers once people get into using the workflow of the introductory version. $99 is certainly a price which would be better suited.
If it’s as buggy as the main version of SampleRobot 6 then this should be avoided at all cost
i’ll stick with autosampler in mainstage
i could never figure out why this package is so expensive
i can build a usable facsimile in max/msp over a couple afternoons
“i can build a usable facsimile in max/msp over a couple afternoons”
Says guy who never builds a usable facsimile, ever.
Little harsh, no?
are you the developer?
you realize how simple the fundamental feature of this software is? it merely sends a midi note range, records the individual sounds that come in, and saves them. creating .sfz instruments is as basic as a little list processing, outputted to a text file. supposedly ‘deluxe’ features like velocity curves are a no brainer.
even a novice Max/pd user could bang this out in a couple weekends. the other stuff it brings to the table, wave editing, sample re-processing etc, are better served by other tools anyway. i’ve never bothered to patch that in Max, cause Mainstage does it for ~$30, and before then redmatica.
i’ve created most of my own composition, performance, and installation tools in Max & regularly tour them internationally at the best digital art festivals in the world, so no worries there, but thanks for your comment. 🙂
