Skylife presents updates and new products

SKYLIFE announces a comprehensive update for the well-tried sampling software SampleRobot. A lot of new features based on customer wishes and feedbacks are included in new version 2. Furthermore the new WaveRobot software for professional loop editing is fully integrated. SampleRobot version 2 comes with WaveRobot already included. Plus the brand-new SampleRobot Essentials offers a lot of professional auto-sampling features from its big brother SampleRobot at a reasonable price.

With brand-new SKYLIFE SampleRobot version 2 you can “clone” 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.

What´s new in version 2:
+ WaveRobot (fully scalable wave editor for professional loop editing)
+ Improved interface design (coloring, workflow, hide-panels)
+ MIDI capture function (With this function activated all played note velocities and all incoming MIDI controller information will automatically be captured in the Multi-Sample section allowing perfect MIDI remote control of all sound sources.)
+ MIDI Note In display (All played notes are now displayed on SampleRobot’s virtual keyboard.)
+ Comprehensive copy functions for Multi-Samples (Now it is possible to combine Multi-Samples from different projects to create huge layer sounds and velocity-splits.)
+ ChessRobot (This game makes waiting during recording a lot easier since you can play a nice game of chess in the meantime. ChessRobot runs independently and offers different challenge levels.)
+ New additional display resolution 1280×1024 supported
+ Minimize display option (450×300 pixels) with full editing capabilities
+ Optimized Note-In recognition
+ Optimized ASIO playback (no more clicks when stopping wave or tuning oscillator playback)
+ Optimized VSTi recording (secondary audio buffer implemented)
+ Optimized Autoloop recognition (now usually about 15 times faster)
+ Numerous additional improvements in detail

WaveRobot is the new stand-alone application for professional loop editing. WaveRobot finds optimum loop points and alternatives in wave files automatically. A high speed graphic engine with full zoom functionality makes WaveRobot very comfortable software to work with. WaveRobot can be purchased independently as stand-alone software. Users of SampleRobot version 2 can work with WaveRobot immediately because it is already included.
