VSampler Comments

One of the best software samplers, aside of Shortcircuit

Positive Comment by Atoshi
about VSampler and Shortcircuit Sampler Dec 2015

This sampler has very good capabilities of modifying its sound, but the most important thing is very low aliasing distortion level it introduces to output (comparison here: http://www.discodsp.com/highlife/aliasing/)

Both VSampler 2 and 3 and PDF user manuals are still downloadable from official website, and these are the exact same binaries as full version, only needing a license key to unlock, but sadly author discontinued selling these, and plans to quit maintaining the site after 15 years of activity. In case someone looked for download after the site becomes completely defunct, this is archived package from Internet Archive:

NOTE: There should be a underscore between "archiveteam" and "archivebot", but it breaks everytime i confirm the post.
