If you have Reaktor:

This is on sale at the moment:

I only have the free version but it works surprisingly well. I'm not ready to jump in yet at that price (even the sale) but I'll keep an eye on it and if it develops a bit further and comes down a bit in price, I might go for it. It's a really nice tool to have, especially for free though.


As you already use Ableton, and from what your asking for, I just made up a template from an Adam Maggs tutorial he did for Liveschool - it might be a new way to spice stuff up for you and it doesn't cost anything:

You can trigger different portions of your audio loops via midi note information. And as you asked for, it is also a very easy way to overlay loops, at whatever lengths you desire.

Phobos would have been amazing (and unique) if you could use your own samples.
It's convolution, which I think sounds much more natural and interesting than anything I've heard with granular synthesis.

Probably Falcon offers the most manipulation from combining sample + synthesis

Nothing beats Bitwig. The sampler device has wavetable, granular, multisampling, all fully modular. And with the Grid you can load the sampler device and just go crazy. In fact ever since I've started using Bitwig it has removed any need for plug-ins.

I have no idea why they don't invest more in Iris 2. Such a friendly well thought out version of spectral control of samples.

Iris 3 is one of the most requested plugin update.
Izotope will make lots of $ and will make musicians very happy.

Or why not some other developer make something similar to what Iris 3 would have been.

Spectral is ok if you like that kind of sound..

Bitwig could be great, but there are a few weak points, such as not being able to adjust transient detection sensitivity.
You also can't export your sample regions to files, which would be very good for file management, and building a sample library that can be resampled etc.
For slicing it is not the best. Modulation is definitely awesome, but it's quite bare bones compared to Ableton Sampler.

I did some research on UVI Falcon. You can download the workstation free as a kind of preview. But it's so cut down there is almost nothing to see there. Falcon to me looks like the most powerful mix of editing and sample / synthesis.

I've been getting some interesting results out of combining loop sampler, time sampler and wavetable in CRx4.
All the Linnplug stuff is very musical to my ears.
