PowerSampler features 32 stereo voices, a 16-channel multi-mode, extensive editing features including a fully integrated graphical sample editor, and a 24-channel mixer with chorus and delay effects. Samples and programs in AKAI S1000 & S3000, Soundfont 2, WAV and AIFF format can be loaded directly from the computer's internal CD-ROM drive or hard disk."
