Instrument Manager provides instrument management with any software/hardware sampler format. It supports practically all Instrument file formats: Kontakt, Structure, EXS24, Reason NNXT, HALion, MachFive, Independence, GigaStudio, SFZ/Dimension, workstations such as Motif, Fusion, and Fantom, and old samplers such as Akai, Roland, Emu, Ensoniq, Kurzweil, and many more.

Use as a Browser.
Instrument Manager uses a iTunes-ish interface. Search queries are performed in a standard form. Drag anything off the interface and drop it onto any software sampler that supports dropping of files (Kontakt, Structure, etc.). Four individual customizable views allow freedom to look at things a number of ways.

Windows and Mac. Any Instrument Format.
Instrument Manager is compatible with any modern Mac or Windows operating system. No matter what sampler, or what file, Instrument Manager supports it. There aren't many computer or instrument files that Instrument Manager can't handle.

No more bad links.
Instrument Manager uses innovative new technology to relink samples quickly and easily when the links are broken. It provides re-directing links to new samples, changing of link/sample names using Find-Replace techniques, plus other innovative re-linking schemes.

Power Databasing.
Any Instrument can be given metadata tags, and searched upon using those tags. Instruments can be grouped under user-defined groups for later access. Multiple databases are supported. Instrument Manager databasing can be synchronized with other sampler's database schemes.

The other stuff.
Use the Bank Builder to make your own custom Banks. Merge Instruments using the Object Merger. Rename Instruments, whether they are files or objects within a file. Audition sounds. Read, write, and browse proprietary disks such as Akai, Roland, Emu, Ensoniq, and Kurzweil.
