Skylife releases SampleRobot V1.5 Update and Demo Version
SampleRobot is the missing link between sound source and software sampler. It was never easier to record audio and to create multi-samples in one go. SampleRobot works as a copying machine for sounds featuring advanced recording and auto-loop searching algorithms. If there are MIDI connections available between an instrument and a computer SampleRobot sends out MIDI note messages and controller information, note by note. The external device gets the MIDI information and plays back the sounds. At the same time SampleRobot is in audio recording mode. Just a few mouse clicks and a fully detailed sampled synthesizer with all internal sound programs is on your hard drive ready to be played with any available software sampler. SampleRobot is also equipped with semi-automatic recording functions for sampling of acoustic instruments.

Have your whole studio within your computer environment - SampleRobot enables you to work mobile!
