At the Superbooth 2019 Skylife introduced a new SampleRobot version.
This update is now available for SampleRobot Pro, Multi-X, Korg+Wave and
SampleRobot Montage. The new version 6.2 offers advanced VST2 plugin
sampling, a new input/output panel, wave and aiff drag&drop
functionality, extended semi-automatic recording and many performance
optimizations. It is free for all users of SampleRobot 6 and can be
comfortably downloaded via the in-application updater.

VST2 Host and plugin sampling (SampleRobot Pro only)

The integrated VST2 plugin host is now extensively optimized regarding
CPU-performance and VST2 plugin compatibility. It is also seamlessly
integrated into the Project Wizard that helps setting up complex
sampling projects very easy in a few steps.

Input/Output panel

When sampling with multiple interfaces and different audio and Midi
ports it is hard to keep the overview. The new I/O panel is designed to
make input and output assignment easy and comprehensible. Once a project
is created it can be quickly re-assigned to a new input configuration
including all contained multisample layers.

Wave and Aiff file drag&drop

This feature stood high on the SampleRobot users’ most wanted wish list.
Now drag&drop is included in version 6.2. One or more wave/aiff files
can be dragged to the virtual keyboard in SampleRobot who will then give
some import options in return. Root-keys can be detected from the
embedded file data or from the filenames to allow automatic mapping
along the keyboard. Loop information can be extracted from the files as
well. It is possible to combine existing samples to new instruments and
to export them as various multisample formats including up- and
downsampling and various stereo mapping and loop options.

Extended semi-automatic mode

With now up to 1000 seconds of recording time for each sample in
semi-automatic (non-Midi) recording mode you can even sample whole music
tracks and longer sound design atmospheres. Building construction kits
for film music and sound design that can be performed live to picture
was never easier.


SampleRobot 6.2 is fully compatible with Mac OS X Mojave and the latest
Windows 10 build. Compared to previous releases the CPU power
consumption on Mac could partly be reduced up to 50%.
