A new feature can be found in the release version of SampleRobot . A new and universal loop-
finder now sets optimal loop points while recording automatically. Of course the user can search
for alternative loop points for each sample. The acoustic results are excellent. Audio examples
will be available soon on our web site.

Another brand new feature in SampleRobot is the freely zoomable waveform window, where
editing is comfortable, fast and effective. Automatic functions can be combined with manual
editing to get best results. Sampling was never easier!

           SampleRobot® provides fully automated sampling
„Save time and space“ is the motto. For the first time SampleRobot offers fully automatic
sampling of real instruments in definable detail. With SampleRobot you can recreate your
favorite instruments and sounds via software samplers. You can archive your samples
and combine your sounds to completely new virtual instruments.
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. Sale for SampleRobot starts mid of
April 2005. Anticipated price will be 249, - Euro (330 US $).
Be mobile with SampleRobot
SampleRobot works as a copying machine for sounds. 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 half
automatic recording functions for sampling of acoustic instruments.
Have your whole studio within your computer environment - SampleRobot enables you to work
Save time with SampleRobot

All procedures like sending MIDI Note on and off, program change, audio recording, naming,
editing, audio fade calculation, loop creation, multi sample mapping, and export are executed fully
automatically. It was never easier to record audio and to create multi samples in one go.
SampleRobot is designed to work practically completely on its own while the user keeps full
control of all parameters manually. And, SampleRobot s sampling engine is non destructive.
Complex multi sample recordings can now be done in a jiffy. SampleRobot can create, arrange
and archive whole projects full of multi sample layers.
