Description : SampleX provides an emulation of the sound of an accurately modeled vintage sampler. Enter the sample rate, bitrate, aliasing, input drive and filter to make it sound like any sampler, or create your own! Several sampler emulation presets are already included.
In today’s advanced age of musical instruments that are looking for the “purest”, most “perfect” sounds, there is suddenly a desire to hear the “gritty” sound of the machines of the past.
It used to be a trend to buy old samplers and drum machines like EMU SP1200, AKAI s900/950 and others. This increased the cost of these machines to tens of thousands of dollars. The sound that producers and performers look for in these blocks is usually low bitrates and sample rates, resulting in “aliased” sound or “artifacts” as we now call them. These limitations of vintage cars have now become very desirable and in demand. Just downsampling and beat-crushers don’t sound like old machines yet.
Our team at Beatskillz went in search of the real circuit and found every detail of the direct A/D converters, preamps, analog and digital filters and processes needed to recreate each stage and create a plug-in that can not only emulate a sampler, but also create your own. sampler or vintage chip!
The sample rate interpolation system built into the DSP allows you to use any sample rate from 96 kHz to 2 kHz. You can also “type in” values!
