Need a new soft sampler....

#1
After Christmas i'm switching from Logic (cos it's a big bag of silver shit..... Grumble ) to Pro Tools 8 and am looking for a replacement for my EXS24.

I don't really want to go back to using Kontakt.....it's a bit over the top for those moments when i just want to trigger a 1 shot.....

Just something simple is what i'm after.....a few envelopes, lfo's, and modulation options...non cpu intensive also


Any recomendations ?

I recently got GURU and I am very pleased with it. Very easy to use and it makes my work flow smooth so I can get a bit more creative than using the EXS24.

had a look at guru previously, and didn't really get on with itt....

tried sc2 last night....i like it, but it did crash both my logic and pro tools quite easily....


are you lot using version 1, or 2 ?????

going to try vers 1 tonight and see if that behaves a bit better.

v2 is unfinished, and won't be because claes (the developer) was snapped up by the ableton company.

v1 Lovesmilie

such a shame though cos i had a lot of input in v2 and it will never see the light of day Sad2 it would have ended the search for the perfect soft sampler Icon_sad

tried v1 the other day.....a few things seemed odd....

i loaded identical rex files into both sc1 & exs24....hit play, and straight away sc1 was clipping the output by 2db..... Icon_eek whilst exs24 was displaying the correct level (0db). Xyxthumbs

after checking the output level on both samplers i found they were both balanced between the exs24 & sc1, and triggering individual slices the levels matched on both samplers.

why is this ?

after reduce the output of the multi in sc1 (the obvious thing to do to sort out the clipping issue) i noticed that the rex file playing from sc1 also sounded distorted slightly in comparison....


has anyone else noticed this ?

No.

Something is wrong Smile

There is a global headroom setting at the top of SC by the way - set it to 6 (or whatever) and get some headroom back.

But it doesn't do that Smile

short-circuit is probably the best thing since blow-jobs

fuck using rex files to import into the sampler at all Neutral

just export yer chops to a folder of their own and export a midi file aswell, and keep a rex file so you can go back and correct some of the slices if you have to

I do like Kontakt.....i might revisit it actually...


I'm also looking for something that can convert my EXS24 libraries into another format......It's took me years to get it sorted in a way so pretty much every sample i own is catagorised, at hand, and all in one place....
