The SampleTrak is a Sampling Module with a maximum of 60 seconds of monaural sampling at an 18-bit 32Khz rate.
It also features various pads to trigger samples and a built-in effects -section.
"Even if this is the first time that you have ever touched a sampler, you can easily create groovy break beats.
A user-friendly sequencer is a powerful tool for track production, and a resampling function for more flexible editing.
Plus an Auto Sync function that adjusts BPM in one action, and a variety of effects supports a number of sound creation tasks, from DJ performance to Remixing.
Simple sampling of any line or microphone source: Three tonal grades in stereo or monaural are available. A total of 30 seconds of stereo data can be sampled in ""Hi-Fi"" grade, and a total of four minutes of data in monaural ""Lo-Fi"" grade. Use and save memory efficiently according to the sources or your application. For example, you can use the Lo-Fi grade intentionally to make the sound more powerful.
Pad Play for playback of break beats: Assign your samples of up to 24 pads (eight pads in three banks) for quick playback. Choose the desired playback mode, depending on the type of sample, such as a loop or one-shot. A Source pad on the ST-224 enables you to enjoy Transformer Play using external sources. LEDs for active pads light up, which is helpful in a dark DJ booth, or on stage.
EASY SAMPL EDITING
Easy sample editing: Assign a sampled rhythm loop to a pad for quick playback. In addition, you may select only a snare or kick drum sound from a single rhythm loop and assign it to multiple pads. You can also set the level, pan, reverse, and effects for an assigned sample for each pad individually, and create many variations from a single sample. All pad settings, including the start/end points and offset, do not affect the original waveform data. This is called ""non-destructive editing"".
INTELLIGENT AUTO SYNC
Intelligent Auto Sync function for automatic BPM adjustment: Time and energy-consuming pitch adjustment and time stretch operations are now history. With the Auto Sync function, the BPM of a sample assigned to a pad and the BPM of samples assigned to other pads automatically match one another. This feature enables you to spend your music production time more effectively.
BUIL-IN SOUND EFFECTS
Twenty-two built-in effects: Apply effects to certain pads and use the edit wheel and the edit knob for example to control pitch bend and resonance in real-time. Dramatic effect changes will add emotion to your performance. For an advanced technique, set the effect BPM to sync with the delay time or modulation cycle of your songs.
Real-time sequencer for recording eight songs and a Playlist function: The built-in real-time sequencer enables you to record your pad performance, up to eight songs to produce remixes. Also, a Playlist function allows you to assign eight songs to the pads to perform difficult real-time tricks.
Resampling function for sampling phrases in the digital domain: A Resampling function enables you to create new sample data by resampling phrases played via the assigned pad or from the internal sequencer. Of course, you can also apply the internal effects to phrases before you resample them. The original waveform data remains completely intact. Use this ultimate editing power and try resampling to your heart's content.
MIDI controllable: Sync songs with an external MIDI device via MIDI clock, trigger pads that respond to MIDI note numbers, and control internal effects in real-time.
Internal backup memory eliminates time-consuming setup: Save the entirety of the main memory (bulk data), such as samples and songs, to an internal backup memory. When you turn on the power to the unit, the saved data will be automatically loaded to the main memory to facilitate quick setup.
Secured backup with a data card: Using an optional data card SM04 enables you to save multiple bulk data streams and load waveform data individually. Using the card also enables you to import PCM data created on a computer.
