Sampletank 3 worth it?

I was a big fan of Sampletank and used it quite a lot – in fact I also had Miroslav and Samplemoog – if I remember rightly I got Miroslav first. I used Sampletank a lot over the years, I would expect there is at least one instrument on every track I have done since […]

Free VST Drum Sampler: Loopazoid

Loopzazoid by NextSoft is my favourite Drum Sampler VST, It’s not out of the box because you need to create your own kits. If like me you’ve got shed loads of drum samples it’s really easy to set up a kit. Your samples though will probably need converting as Loopazoid only accepts samples at 16bit. […]
