Instrument Sampler

DESCRIPTION

Grain cloud sampler. Same sample map as Gruinard, but very different result. Does those weird, dark, twisted things to your samples but it's in sync and in tune if your samples are.
Included samples are tuned to C and rooted at 60. 4 note polyphonic... go easy on the grain length if you're short on CPU.
The “stepper” idea is from eXistenZ II but has been modified to be adjustable, so some credit to Leboz on that. Hard clip implementing a couple of Luca Capozzi's diode emulators.
Sallen Key filter by Vadim Zavalishin, slightly modified.

Hit some keys and keep the clock running.
Enjoy

Update 1.51
- Microscopic GUI adjustment. Just re-positioned some LED meters. If you already have 1.5 you really don't need to download again
- some snaps were not moving. Fixed
-added a few more demos, hopefully showcasing that this thing is playable.

Update 1.5
- Seq routing to loop start and end position. More fun
- Filters replaced. Now utilizing a TSK Notch pickup, heavily saturated, and Vadim Zavalishin's Sallen Key LP filter. Much warmer "enjoyable" sound.
- "Minor" GUI update... no longer a prototype
- Added snapshot bank to showcase loop point movement

Update 1.21
- Added 2 snapshot banks by Paule

Update 1.2
- Random position LFO inadvertently allowed playhead to jump out of playable area, causing awkward moments of silence.. fixed
- while I was there, decided the Pos segment selection method was too wonky. rebuilt... there are now loop start and loop end knobs instead of "segment" and "direction". To achieve reverse sample playback, set start knob at higher value than end knob.
- Added a couple of indicators to visualize loop points, in sample window
- Mute button inverted, to facilitate future GUI update. *** If you made your own snapshots for 1.1 and they now are silent... check the mute setting****
- Added new snapshot bank to showcase 1.2 update features

@jace: I'd love to help you but you'd need to provide more information.. Like, standalone or in a daw? did you try reloading the synth/ any specific preset? etc. etc. Reaktor 6.3 is good. Cross-platform implementation is NI's department and I'm not an NI employee, so I don't have any OS related comments.

I changed snapshots and suddenly there was no audio output (including on the preset where I started). Reaktor 6.3, Mac OS 10.12.6.

Fantastic. Very glad that your output is available for free, but this is of such a high standard that you'd be well within your rights to charge or at least make available as donationware. Thanks so much for your creations! :)
