The TX16Wx is simply the best option to get when looking for a highly functional, yet affordable software sampler. Of course if you don't need pro features like time stretch or pitch shift it's free even! I've thoroughly compared it with Akai's MPC software and imo it does everything related to sampling, sample mapping and editing even faster once you've adapted to its workflow. It's pure efficiency and if you make a good suggestion to further improve the workflow or functionality the creator will be really quick to adapt.
Combine this sampler with Reaper and maybe Surge and you'll have enough music production possibilities and depth for a lifetime, if you are only willing to learn your tools well.Read Review
I absolutely love this sampler. I use it for drums and piano samples. You get quite a lot of control over every sample, including some effects and MIDI mapping. I don't even use half of the features. Well worth the money.Read Review
TX16Wx is overlooked and underrated, despite being the best software sampler today. And I'm not even talking about the Pro version – the free version can easily compete with commercial products. To my mind, it has everything you need for creative sampling:
TX16Wx doesn't have a 100 GB sample library because it was never intended to. Its purpose is to bring back the joy of sampling. And I believe TX16Wx serves its purpose really well.
Although it is a feature-packed sampler, don't be intimidated and discouraged – you don't need to use all of its features. In fact, thanks to flexible GUI, TX16Wx can be as simple as a sampler can get: just hide the panels that you don't want to use – this way you will have less complex GUI and faster workflow. Also, as always – make sure to read the manual before using it.
Finally, it has active support and the Pro version is very reasonably priced, so if you like using TX16Wx free, I think you should definitely support the developer by purchasing the Pro version.Read Review
