    This is actually a good deal for this super-sampler package, but it doesn’t look like it comes with the libraries. That said, those who obtained Independence Pro 2.0 with all the libraries would benefit the most from the upgrade, they would be hit the softest with the bank account. ;) I guess Yellow Tools are determined to get through to those disillusioned Kontakt and Gigastudio users out there who want to be creative with real instruments.

    first, none of these apps are samplers, they’re ROMplers, so by default they are not super or any other superlative you’d care to throw at them.

    second, it’s really funny that a YT guy is dissing Kontakt, considering that Independence Pro isn’t half the app that Kontakt is and that Kontakt has about a million times the marketshare. come to think of it, i’ve never even seen a YT app in a studio or even in a home DAW setup. i hadn’t heard a peep out of YT in a year or two and really thought the company had gone out of business. also what companies release sample libraries for YT? none that i can think of, and YT really needs 3rd party samples considering how poor their own samples sound. but everyone sells sample libs in kontakt and giga formats, so there’s no guessing as to which one is the more popular product.

    I did try the Independence Free a while ago and I thought it was OK, although I was a bit disappointed with the sample content.

    Kontakt doesn’t sample either. I have no need for a sampler so I don’t care really but I think it’s a bit silly that all these “samplers” are actually sample players. I would think they’d just add a simple record function and be done with all the ridicule. Not sure how hard that would be to implement though…

    I use Kontakt primarily as a sample player for 3rd party libraries, but when I do occasionally dig a bit deeper I’m always amazed how much this thing can do.

    I just got [Komplete 5] for $374 with the 15% discount with the Sam ash coupon.

    Yeah… it is funny how most of them don’t actually sample. You would think that NI would make this one of their future updates to the product.

    Their Maschine app does it. Motu’s-BPM does. E-MU’s-Emulator x, as well. I know there are some others. It’s really not a necessity given the number of apps you can do that with.

    I wish Battery3 was updated with an intergrated sequencer that had an MPC feel.

    I tried the free Yellow tools sampler and it crashed quite a bit.
