Do what? create your own instrument assembling multiple samples per keyboard and velocity zones? Maybe Live Sampler can do it, as can Reason NN-XT (but those are just samplers - or sample players - not sampler synthesizers, as they don't have any other kind of synthesis technique like granular, wavetable, resynthesis, etc.).anomandaris1 wrote: ↑Wed Feb 12, 2020 2:58 amModular environments can also do this- Reaktor, Polygrid (in Bitwig), Mux, whatever you get in Fl all plugins bundle (Harmor for resynthesis/Directwave connected in Patcher along with other synths), Live suite (racks/Max), S1 sampler with the layered environment etc.fmr wrote: ↑Wed Feb 12, 2020 2:08 am
Because, to me, stricto sensu, only HALion, Falcon and Kontakt qualify as "synth sampler workstations". Because anything that doesn't allow you to create your own instrument assembling multiple samples per keyboard and velocity zones (e.g. the so many times quoted here Omnisphere), immediately disqualifies it as a "sampler". And only the mentioned three allow you to do that, AFAIK.
Again, it's important to define precisely what we are talking about. Because A LOT OF VIRTUAL INSTRUMENTS CAN USE SAMPLES THESE DAYS, but that doesn't qualify them as samplers, in the way the word "sampler" is being used commonly nowadays.
Let's pick Arturia, for example. Arturia now would have FOUR sample synthesizers: CMI V, Mellotron V, Pigments and Synclavier V.
Using samples doesn't mean an instrument is a sampler, unless we are talking of the broad technical sense of the word, which would mean that hundreds (literally more than one hundred) instruments would qualify.
Reaktor alone has dozens of ensembles (both commercial and free) that would qualify as "samplers". Kontakt based "instruments" idem.
