BeatSkillz Releases Vintage Sampler Emulation Instrument, Sample X
Rounik Sethi on Sun, May 31st 0 comments
If you want the gritty sounds of yesteryear's classic samplers then Sample X, modeled on vintage hardware like the EMU SP1200, SP16 and AKAI s900, aims to please and lets you add your own personality.

Sample X can bring you accurately modeled vintage sampler emulation. You can Dial-in the sample rate, bit rate, aliasing, input drive, and filter settings to sound like any sampler, or design your own sampler from scratch and save it as Preset. Multiple sampler emulation presets already included in this ( SP1200, SP12, S612, S950, etc).

Main Features

A/D Sample Section:

BITS CONTROL: Set the BIT Rate with this control. The range varies from the modern-day 24 bit right down to 4 bits! You can also “double click” the Bit Display LCD and manually enter the value that you desire.

SR CONTROL (Sample Rate): Set the BIT Rate with this control. The range varies from the modern-day 24 bit right down to 4 bits! You can also “double click” the Bit Display LCD and manually enter the value that you desire.

Aliasing & Drive Section

SHIFT: The key process of getting those “aliased / ring” sounds from the vintage samplers was to lower the pitch of the samples. The effect caused by vintage samplers is emulated here, allowing a user to “dial-in” the exact aliasing sound that they want to hear, without actually modifying the pitch of the sample. “Double click “ and enter the value or use the dial.

DRIVE (on/off switch & control): In vintage samplers, users often “overloaded” the pre-amp before the A/D converter to get a “driven” sound. We have accurately emulated the sound found in the S900 sampler to give you the same saturation and Drive, and get even closer to the sound of those vintage beasts!
“Double click “ and enter the value or use the dial.

ANALOG FILTER EMULATION

FILTER TYPE ( The RED on/ off switch ): We have accurately modeled the popular Vintage Analog Mono Synth used on countless recordings. This is a 24 DB/oct Low Pass Filter with Resonance. If you increase the resonance it does fo into “self-oscillation” creating a pitched tone, just like the original. This filter is perfect for those warm and dark tones fit for lo-fi and hip-hop music. Extremely addictive! Use the Red Light switch to turn it on or off.

FILTER FREQ Control: Set the cutoff Frequency for the Low Pass Filter here. The range is 20 kHz to 20 Hz.

RES Control: Set the Resonance of the Low Pass Filter using the slider control. The range is 0 to 1.0, you can go extreme and get the filter into self-oscillation mode like the real analog filter that it was modeled after.

MIX & INPUT OUTPUT SECTION

WET / DRY: The Wet Control will control the amount of the “effected” signal and the DRY control will mix in the original/ clean signal. This gives you the possibility of mixing just the right amount of processing to your input audio.

IN / OUT: The IN control lets the user increase or decrease the gain of the input audio and the OUT control lets the user increase or decrease the gain of the output audio signal after being processed by the plugin.

PRESETS & File Management

PRESETS: We have carefully matched various settings of SAMPLEX to sound just like the original samplers that we are emulating, some great presets are available here to get you started and also give you a taste of the sound of some vintage samplers that are now unavailable or very expensive to purchase.

You can also easily save and delete your own presets and share them with your friends.

This plugin is currently available at $39 ( Reg Price - $69 ). Valid till 13th June 2020. There is a 15-day trial available.
