Sample Browser/ Organizer

Post by infiniteB » Wed Feb 04, 2009 2:29 pm

Hey, is there a sample/loop browser (similar [but more advanced] to Mackie Tracktion's, Garageband and other DAWs) that I can use with Live (AU/VST I guess? or just an external browser that is not a plug-in?) and organize my samples any way I want (by instrument, key, type, anything else), and even organize and search via deeper and deeper subcategories the way I want (Bass : Acoustic Bass : C Major : 90 bpm : "Bass in Your Face"), etc... ?

hey that request is heaven send. yesterday i did sample more than 1000 drum sounds and now must name/organize them. thanks.

if someone wants to d/l that stuff, pm. its >800 taken from the punchy and popular roland r8m drum machine and some of its cards (jazz, 808/electronic, mallets and soon also ethnic percussions), AND: >250 sounds from the little mfb 502 analog drum machine, with 100 samples of these are from its wonderful analog bass drum. it ran through a british analog mixer of the 90ies, the a/d conversion was taken over by a rent 3000$ monster (ua 2192) on 44/16 to avoid dither artifacts. the samples were cut with samplitude 9.

not sure if you want more of an editor or browser but seeing that you're intrested in audiofinder, which is by iced audio btw, look at edison by imageline , one of the best if not the best imho for pc

hm thank you, but its more for theat editing stuff.

i would need something like a simple file explorer on the left with the possibility to name/rename files and a very basical audio cutter on the right.
