Important Note
Virtual instrument sampling does not encompass the entirety of third-party plugins, as certain plugins may incorporate offline sampling protection, customized preset management, or other characteristics that could present compatibility concerns with the Bliss host. To ensure compatibility, it is advisable to first assess the trial version provided. The trial version permits exporting SFZ files in 16-bit WAV format. The registered version, on the other hand, enables saving and sampling instruments in 24-bit.

Looks like the windows version is not available for demo.

I was quite interested in this as it crosses platforms. Sounds great, and the demo did nothing to dissuade me until I hit the zone editor. It's badly in need of an easier, more visual way to define velocity layers and keyboard zones.

Absolutely agree with you! Since Bliss can import .xrni from Redux you can use Redux for mappings. Free demo is unlimited and can export .xrni. The simplest but time-consuming way is creation/edition of .sfz in text editor.

Agree, very impressive VST sampling and easy intuitive sampler, but needs a visual representation of Zones and velocity layers.
