Serato has announced the Public Beta launch for Serato Sample, which they describe as a fun, fast, high-quality production plugin that allows you to quickly find, chop, key shift and time stretch samples. They say that, until now, producers have struggled to freely manipulate samples while maintaining high-grade audio quality but this has been solved with Sample, an intuitive sampling tool powered by Serato's original plugin, Pitch 'n Time.
Serato CEO, Young Ly, told us, "Over the years we've seen huge growth in the crossover between DJing and producing so it feels like a natural next step for us to return to the world of production. And in turn it made sense to leverage our successful plugin, Pitch 'n Time."
Serato says that Sample's feature set accommodates the needs of producers wanting a powerful, convenient sampling tool and also provides a familiar, intuitive workflow for DJs to delve into beat making.
