1. We're currently conducting systematic tests with the release version of macOS 11 (Big Sur) in order to offer full compatibility of our products as soon as possible. You can find our latest compatibility status - here


    Please note that although announced at the same time as macOS Big Sur, Apple Silicon processors are an independent release with separate compatibility concerns for NI products. Compatibility with macOS Big Sur will not yet ensure compatibility with Apple Silicon processors. At the moment, Native Instruments products are not supported on computers with Apple Silicon processors. Read more - here

    Thought I'd give this one it's own thread :)

    We just released: Vintage Sampler & Vintage Sampler Lite

    vintage sampler screenshot rack2.png

    These blocks have the ability to ‘sample’ audio from their input port (like a real hardware sampler), for independent recording and playing back of samples. The controls have been laid out to make jamming with a sample very easy and fun.

    A high-quality playback engine allows click-free looping, juggling and granulizing of samples using the CROSSFADE control, plus there are 5 different FM modes including a 'scratch' mode for scratching effect.

    The blocks feature a fantastic GUI designed by Christian Schneider from Sonidiom (who also designed the GUI for the Sequential Switch which is also in the free User Blocks Pack). Of course being modular, all functions (including arming / recording / scratching etc) can be modulated using the other blocks in the User Blocks Pack.

    The full ‘Vintage Sampler’ block features high quality modelling of a variety of vintage hardware samplers (not available in the lite version). A lot of work has gone into accurately emulating the signal path of several vintage units. The sampler has 5 different ‘models’ which can be selected from the block’s ‘Options’ page: TOY1, TOY2, 80s, 90s and CLEAN.

    The 'Vintage Sampler Lite' block is available for free as part of the Toybox User Blocks Pack and the 'Vintage Sampler' block can be purchased for $19 (or just $14.25 using the current SPOOKY25 discount). Reaktor 6.4 (not the player version) is required to use either block as they are both ‘User Blocks’.

    The blocks are available on the toybox website:

    toyboxaudio.com

    Also the Halloween sale is currently running! Just enter the code SPOOKY25 at the checkout for 25% off all toybox packs and bundles

    Hi David,
    great stuff as always! Any chance this could be made polyphonic?
    Cheers,
    Karol

    Do these support importing samples with loop points, the last time I checked your other sampler block didn’t support this. It would be nice if this feature could be added.

    No immediate plans for a polyphonic version, the blocks actually have a kind of multi-layered / granular engine that means you can use very short crossfading loops to chop up and granulize the sample without clicks. Maybe in the future though :)

    I just added support to the Vintage Sampler blocks to read loop data if it is embedded in dropped audio files. Let me know if this is what you need. You will need to download the file again from the toybox website:

    A handy 8 knob macro block with individual modulation ports for each knob and 8 snapshots that can be morphed or modulated.
