A pretty decent sampler with several interesting options and a nice but quite small demo soundbank.

CPU friendly if compared with other samplers, interface is user friendly and look inspiring. Effects section is pretty good and contains the usual selection, distortion, eq, modulaton (chorus/ flanger), delay and reverb.

The fact that can load SFZ format is a big plus.

I had small issues when opening files, somehow the loading menu disappear, then I figured out that is just somehow automatically not focused, so it stays behind all opened windows (including the DAW).

There are more interesting samplers or with a smaller CPU consumption, but for this price :) this is warmly recommended.

Anyone figure out how to load samples in this (the page is in German and I can't find anything in English about loading samples or the presets that came with it). The message I get is that it can't find something it needs to load, even though it's in the same folder as the demo samples.

Doesn't appear to support drag and drop from Cubase or via Windows File Manager...

Look in the center window (framed in black). At the top is a black & white bar that says "Main--Mod Matrix--Arpeggiator. Make sure the 'Main' is selected. Just below this are "Bank: Load-Save; Patch: Load-Save; and Load SFZ. It is the 'Load SFZ' button you want to click. It will open a file browser & you can select wherever your samples are located & load a sample.

click on load bank or load preset or load sfz. then navigate to the folder where they are located I put mine in steinberg/vstplugins. but you can place them anywhere even in my documents it depends on how you want to do it.

A great plug-in - I thought I had found the ideal sample /sfz player - but it adds 3MB to my project files!!! - is there a way to avoid this??

Great tool, .

intuitively understandable UI wit versatile mod-matrix and sweet built-in efects that sounds really good.

there is only con i found - it loads only 32-bit wav.

This is a very powerful Zampler! I made a proper sample pack for it called 'Rhymes With Rogue - Leads' and some of the patches are crazy good! Check it out -https://www.biomedigital.com/downloads/rhymes-with-rogue-leads.
