Abelton Announces a Powerful New Sampling Instrument – Sampler

Sound_design Ableton announced a new sampling instrument called Sampler. According to Ableton – "Sampler also goes deep in the sound design
department, bringing powerful sample manipulation and brilliant
synthesis capabilities, all with the intuitive usability familiar to
Live users."

Sampler will come with a multisample library and support import of "popular" formats such as: AKAI S1000, S3000, GigaStudio, EXS, SoundFont and (non-encrypted) Kontakt.

Sampler will allow you to create your own mutlsamples (unlimited number of zones). Each zone supports  looping, key velocity ranges, and crossfades using a graphical editor.

Sampler’s "Live’s disk preloading technology" help to prevent RAM memory shortages and long load times.

Sampler sports some serious programmability as well as many modulation options including sample start and loop position as well as loop length.

Pricing. A
serial number for the full version of Sampler (requires Live 6) will be
available for EUR 169/USD 199 from the Ableton webshop.

Availability. Sampler will be available with the release of Live 6. Sampler is currently in beta testing with Live 6.
