Don’t be a slave to the preset get your hands…
Looking for a simple to use VST sampler and it has to be free?
Then look no further than Vember Audios – Short Circuit.
Brilliant bit of software, easy to setup.
Pips to use.
I got my first sampled instrument made and played in less than ten minutes.
Load your sample, assign it a note, load your next note….
There are lots of other features I guess but for me it was exactly what I wanted.
Taken from Vember Audio:
“Sampling is supposed to be fun
Prior to shortcircuit it wasn’t as fun as it could be.
Shortcircuit was created as a reaction against the ongoing trend where software samplers are being designed with the primary intent of library playback. It is intended for people who, like us, consider a sampler to be a musical instrument in its own right, and not just a way to emulate other instruments. It has been a very high priority to make sure that adding and editing individual samples is as fast and logical as possible.
The sample hierarchy in shortcircuit allow you to place samples directly at the highest level of the multi, without having to deal with instrument hierarchies and patches. Want to add a sample to your song? Just drag & drop the sample into shortcircuit and you’re ready to go. Samples can be put in groups for multi-sampling and kit-building, but the complexity is only there when you need it.” – Read More
Heres a video tutorial on youtube:
The Short Circuit VST ssampler also built in filters, modulation, distortion, eq, bit reduction, gating, limiting and oscillation.
You can create simple instruments by just loading or drag and dropping samples.
Want more then try messing with the built in additional controls.
