32-bit VST only
Quickly add up to six incidental samples to a project with a choice of basic playback behaviours and comprehensive MIDI control and automation options. (Right click anything for available MIDI control.)
Load 16 or 24-bit wav files of any sample rate. Play samples from/to any position within them using the Start/End parameters. Play one shot, looped, reversed and pitched - semitone and fine. Both semitone and fine pitching have a range of 2 octaves up/down and can be used in conjunction with each other (play speed will increase/decrease when pitched).
Although samples can be mapped to play on a range of keys, there is no tracking, i.e. samples will play at the same pitch for the entire set range. ESP is not suitable to create chromatic instruments.
- Start - Plays one shot from start/end point to end/start point (depending on play direction) or looped between these points.
- Start 2 - Plays from start/end point to end/start point (depending on play direction) but loops between Start 2 and end/start points. Looping must be set to On, Fade or ZeroX for Start 2 to operate.
- Off - One shot.
- On - Standard.
- Fade - Fades in/out around loop point.
- ZeroX - Attempts to find zero crossings of adjusted positions (can reduce or eliminate clicking).
There is also an option to use a file's embedded loop.
MIDI channel and audio output options for each slot.
Interface colours can be edited for the background and for each slot.
Mouse-over help is incorporated into the interface.
A small set of files, used in the preset examples, is included.
The interface is a little larger than indicated here - A true representation on the download page.
