looking for a Semi-Auto Sampler for sampling Hardware Synths and Keyboards.

Which one have you used and what are the pros/cons of those you used ?

the ones I found online are Samplerobot, Samplit and Extreme Sample Converter.
SampleRobot there are Multi-X vs Pro, but the feature comparison i snot clear enough on their website.
I'm looking for one that:
- creates loop points automatically
- at-least 4 velocity layers
- can sample every single key of 88 keys
win10 x64. cubase 10 x64.

I'm thinking of creating one of these myself as an open source project, which would run in any DAW as a VST. (Running as a VST means that a lot of hard stuff is handled by the DAW, so I could focus on the workflow.) My primary use case is sampling digital pianos so that we can use them in a DAW without having the piano attached. Velocity layers, max sample length, and notes to sample would be configurable. I have other projects on deck at the moment, but that could change.

I'll be interested to hear if anyone knows of auto-looping that works well. Whenever I've tried it, it's used a cross-fade, which is unacceptable for the things I was sampling (piano, Rhodes, where a clear even tone is critical.) I would not attempt auto-looping myself, but if a good DSP guy wanted to code it I'd be delighted.

I didn't realize that EXSC would do auto-sampling. I'll have to give it a try. Sadly, the current download won't accept my license key, and they didn't reply to my email, so I only currently have the demo. At the price I wouldn't mind just buying it again, as I got my money out of it when I first got it back in 2006 or so.

Samplerobot is too expensive for my budget.

I'm using Translator's auto-sampler but doing the looping manually via Sound Forge's loop tuner. I don't trust an algorithm to do it.
