SKYLIFE updates SampleRobot Pro to v4.8 + Free packs for microSAMPLER

SKYLIFE has released version 4.8 of SampleRobot Pro, a comprehensive update for the top-of-the-line auto-sampling software for Windows and Mac.

Skylife SampleRobot 4 Pro

It includes unique functions like a supersize WaveRobot sample editing window and enhanced support for up to 128 velocity layers per Project.

This version 4.8 upgrade is free of charge for all users of SampleRobot 4 Pro. Furthermore new customers will receive a free upgrade token to version 5 of SampleRobot Pro, to be released in 2015/Q01.

Changes in SampleRobot Pro v4.8

  • Support for up to 128 velocity layers in a single Project.
  • Enhanced velocity auto-mapping for all multi-sample export formats.
  • Supersize WaveRobot window for screen resolutions up to 3200×2000 pixels.
  • Advanced audio transient recognition for elimination of silence at sample start.
  • Improved Mac OSX framework, compatible with OS 10.10 Yosemite.
  • Optimized activation process.
  • Includes 5 new skins and color schemes.
  • Includes 4 additional Premium Multisample Banks in SF2 format: AMBIENTE, NEURONIC, ELEKTRON and NOIZCUTZ.
  • Various optimizations in respect to graphical user interface and functionality.
  • Comes with free upgrade token to version 5 of SampleRobot Pro for all new customers.
  • Includes 4 cross-platform installation licenses.

SampleRobot 4 Pro is available for purchase for $349 USD/249 EUR/£219 GBP. The update is free for all users of SampleRobot 4 Pro.

SKYLIFE has also released 4 free sample packs for KORG microSAMPLER users.

Skylife microSAMPLER packs

The ambient loops and airy beats from the AMBIENTE sample bank fuse into inspiring mood tracks. This is an atmospheric sound construction kit of the special kind.

Sounds from the legendary Hartmann Neuron Synthesizer form the heart of the NEURONIC sample set. Rich modulated textures, extraordinary morph sounds and neuronic effects reminiscent of film scores enrich every music production.

In the ELEKTRON bank pulsating analog sounds and a sampled analog drum synthesizer let the microSAMPLER become a muscle machine for all sorts of electronic music. The single samples cut through the mix already but you can layer them synced in tempo for full impact.

For the sample bank NOIZCUTZ sounds from an old multi-band transistor radio were captured with SampleRobot. You can find all kinds of short and long wave sweeps, typical noise patterns and sound shreds from the flood of radio waves surrounding us every day.

The packs are available to download at no charge. If you don’t own the microSAMPLER, you can still extract the samples with Korg’s free editor software.

SKYLIFE releases SampleRobot Virtual Cable + Instrument Host

Related: , , , , , , Posted in news on Apr 17, 2013 - comment 0 comments

SKYLIFE has announced the release of its new SampleRobot Virtual Cable + Instrument Host software bundle.

SampleRobot Virtual Cable is a virtual audio driver for Windows computers. Have you ever wanted to record audio that momentary plays on your computer and save it to your hard drive? Or do you need a possibility to stream audio from one application to another? Maybe you would like to sample virtual instruments?

All this is now possible with SampleRobot Virtual Cable.

SampleRobot Virtual Cable + Instrument Host
The SampleRobot Virtual Cable with Instrument Host allows setting up chains and layers of plugins with ease.

SampleRobot Virtual Cable consists of four independently usable stereo audio streams with fully flexible routing. After installation (32 + 64 bit versions are included) you have four more audio devices on your system: four virtual stereo inputs and four virtual stereo outputs. Record audio from sources like Skype, YouTube, Vimeo, Spotify, web radio, virtual instruments etc. (abiding by relevant copyright laws and license agreements). SampleRobot Virtual Cable + Instrument Host is a discrete software bundle that can be used in conjunction with the sampling application SampleRobot as well as independently with other applications. The download is now available on the SKYLIFE STORE.

SampleRobot Instrument Host is the ideal partner for SampleRobot Virtual Cable. Both applications can be installed separatly or in conjunction.

With SampleRobot Instrument Host you can easily create chains and layers of virtual instruments and effects. If you need a high-performance plugin host with streamlined connectivity options, you should take a closer look at SampleRobot Instrument Host.
By visually connecting different VSTis and effects you can easily handle complex setups. Then store your preferred settings as presets. In SampleRobot Instrument Host you have four slots which can be filled with plugins, taking advantage of the four individual audio streams provided by the Virtual Cable since each slot has its own settings for audio input and output.

Last but not least, sampling of virtual instruments and VSTi layers including internal and external effects is now possible with no need for specialized audio hardware. In conjunction with SampleRobot Sampling Suite / Pro / Multi-X / Single-X you can fully automate the process of sampling and create high-performance multi-sample versions of CPU-hungry plugins and chains. When sampling VSTi chains and layerings, the created multi-samples will load up much faster in your DAW than all the desired sound-generating plugins. Furthermore CPU-load is reduced to minimum.

SampleRobot Virtual Cable + Instrument Host features

  • Have four independent stereo virtual audio streams for audio routing between different applications.
  • Make any audio recording application a recorder of live audio streams, played on your computer by web sites / web radio and by applications like Skype, YouTube, Vimeo, Spotify, etc. (abiding by relevant copyright laws and license agreements).
  • Create high-performance multi-sample versions of CPU-hungry plugins, layerings and chains (in conjunction with SampleRobot).
  • Save time when loading multi-samples instead of various sound-generating plugins and instances (in conjunction with SampleRobot).
  • SampleRobot Virtual Cable can be accessed system-wide and is compatible with all applications that play / record audio.
  • Works standalone without SampleRobot installation.
  • Smooth integration and interaction with SampleRobot to sample virtual instruments fully automatically, fast and easy.
  • Stack instruments and effects in SampleRobot Instrument Host to allow layering and audio processing during the sampling process.
  • Drag analog-style cable connections in SampleRobot Instrument Host.
  • Save and recall your preferred audio routings and stacking configurations in one go.

The SampleRobot Virtual Cable + Instrument Host is available for Windows, priced at $29.90 USD / 22.90 EUR / £19.90 GBP.
