SamplerBox allows for the manipulation of some basic features such as
playback mode, and
Two system modes¶
SamplerBox has two system modes available which is determined by the
SYSTEM_MODE option in config.ini.
System mode 1 (by Alex MacRae) has more advanced features such as setlist mode, ability to modify system settings, MIDI mapping, and more. System mode 2 (by Hans Hommersom) is a simpler and easier system to use but with less features.
This section requires that you have an understanding of how definition.txt files work
You can now define up to 4 voices within presets via a sample-set’s
definition.txt file using the parameter
juno_60_v2.wav can be found like this:
You can also write something like this:
piano_%midinote.wav_v1, %voice=1 juno_%midinote.wav_v2, %voice=2
More examples here.
To switch between voices you will need to using the MIDI Mapping function to map your desired device controls.
If you have multiple versions of the same sample, for example alternative samples of the same snare drum, you can tell SamplerBox to randomize them by
%seq keyword in your definition.txt file.
More examples here.
You must map its parameters to some MIDI controls via MIDI Mapping.
This is currently experimental as it sometimes produces undesirable pops and clicks.
Builds and plays back a chord from a single note.
Control change messages CC120 and CC123 will trigger the panic function, killing all playing sounds. This can also be MIDI Mapped.
SamplerBox manages your sample-sets with a
setlist.txt file found in the root of your sample-sets directory. If one cannot be found,
a new one is generated and populated with all sample-sets ordered alphanumerically.
Upon startup, new folders will be detected and appended to the end of the setlist.
You can rearrange the setlist via the menu system.
Sample-set definition management¶
Global behaviour keywords for every sample-set can be modified using this feature. This includes
Many features of the SamplerBox can be mapped to MIDI controls via the menu system.
