Homegrown Sounds releases "Batch xFader" tool for automatically creating & crossfading sample loops

Homegrown Sounds

Homegrown Sounds has announced the release of Batch xFader, a new tool designed to automate the tedious work involved making sampler instruments out of samples. This process generally involves:

  • Creating a sustain loop.
  • Cross fading the loop so it loops seamlessly.
  • Trimming any space at the start.
  • Or trimming all/most space at the start.
  • Creating a short fade in at the start to avoid any non zero-crossing clicks.
  • Deleting all data after the loop section which is not usually used.
  • Converting Stereo to Mono.
  • Convert to multiple Formats.

Batch xFader can accomplish all of these tasks as a batch process on a selected folder of WAVs very quickly. It's a great companion to an auto sampling program such as MPC Software or Beats that samples instruments. It's like a finishing tool.

It can either use an already existing sustain loop in the file or create a new/replace existing loop. Creating a loop allows visually selecting percentage values for the loop start, loop end and the cross fade amount. The cross fade uses data from before the loop to mix the cross fade at the end of the loop section.

Each section has an enable button to use the section. This means you can use the application just for specific purposes such as for removing some samples at the front or fading in for example.


Batch xFader costs $34.99, but is available for the intro price of $19.99 until the end of August 2022. It is available for x64 Windows and as a Universal Binary for macOS.
