Hereâ€™s what Skylife have to say about version 2:
With SampleRobot version 2 you can â€˜cloneâ€™ every instrument and turn it into a software instrument automatically. SampleRobot works as a copying machine for instruments featuring advanced recording and auto-loop searching algorithms. If there are MIDI connections available between an instrument and a computer SampleRobot sends out MIDI note messages and controller information, note by note. The external device gets the MIDI information and plays back the sounds. At the same time SampleRobot is in audio recording mode. Just a few mouse clicks and a fully detailed sampled synthesizer with all internal sound programs is on your hard drive ready to be played with any available software sampler. SampleRobot is also equipped with semi-automatic recording functions for sampling of acoustic instruments.
WhatÂ´s new in version 2
Also announced at Messe was SampleRobot Essentials which is designed to offer a lot of professional auto-sampling features from its big brother SampleRobot at a reasonable price. The graphical interface is very easy to use. Beginners can achieve excellent results with just a few mouse clicks. SampleRobot Essentials can also be used in conjunction with WaveRobot as an option.
