Skylife has announced the release of the comprehensive SampleRobot version 6.5 update, adding new export formats and more.

SampleRobot optimizes the audio sampling process and works hand-in-hand with a lot of software and hardware instruments already.

For the new upgrade Skylife expanded the export capabilities even further. Here come three new supported formats and the possibility to sample plugins in high speed via offline bouncing.

Sequential Prophet-X

Supporting hardware samplers was a high priority from the beginning of SampleRobot’s development over a decade ago. With the introduction of Sequential’s Prophet-X it became clear that SampleRobot would be a useful companion to create large custom sample sets for the instrument.

With the remarkable support of Sequential and users in the PX community Skylife was able to implement the Prophet-X export in SampleRobot 6.5 Pro. Just browse your PX’s flash drive and create custom sound libraries in minutes. SampleRobot works inside the sample structure of the Prophet-X.

Users can export the desired sample sets and then import a whole bank into the Prophet-X in one go. With SampleRobot’s downsampling option you can keep your original recording quality in the project and export the optimized samples for your hardware.

Bitwig Studio

Wouldn’t it be a good idea to use your multisamples in Bitwig Studio‘s sampler? No worries about mapping, looping and truncating. It’s all done with SampleRobot’s Bitwig Studio export. SampleRobot 6.5 Pro even includes the standard Bitwig property tags to categorize your multisamples.

You can build up your personal sample library and quickly browse and load new instruments in Bitwig Studio. Skylife received full support from the Berlin-based Bitwig, which made the documentation public to include this feature in SampleRobot Pro.

Synthstrom Deluge

This little synth/sampler/drum machine/fx box/sequencer has a lot of interesting features to offer, including the import of multisamples which are read from an SD card. Building a connecting bridge from SampleRobot to the Deluge has been achieved in this update as well.

From now on users can bypass the time-consuming browsing and adding of samples via the 4-digit display on the Deluge. During the SampleRobot export all necessary data is created in the proper directories on the Deluge’s SD card to allow instant access to your favorite sample sets. Turning the dedicated knob on the Deluge will allow you to browse the created sample instruments directly.

VST2 sampling with offline bouncing

The sampling process can take a lot of time when it comes to creating high quality sample libraries. When recording acoustic instruments you have to record each note as long as it takes to capture it properly. But for virtual instruments there is a trick that Skylife used in SampleRobot 6.5 Pro to dramatically shorten the sampling time.

With the new offline bouncing option the rendering of the samples in the included VST2 host is done with full processor speed. This means that users will save up to 80% time compared to previous versions. If you are heading for quality samples using your custom plugin sounds as a source there is no reason to make compromises anymore because of the sampling time.

SampleRobot 6.5 for Windows and Mac is available now:

  • SampleRobot Pro: 249 EUR.
  • SampleRobot Multi-X: 169 EUR.
  • SampleRobot Korg+Wave: 79 EUR.

The update is free for all users of version 6.
