Software sampler VSTi for Windows
What is VSampler?
VSampler transforms your PC into a 255 voice polyphonic software sampler that is able to use any recorded sound as a musical instrument. It provides all of the classical sampler features in excellent sound quality, and also offers you a multitude of unique new opportunities. VSampler plays XXL instruments without being limited to the RAM size. In cooperation with the users of its award-winning predecessor an intelligent softwaresampler has been created, which beneath a truly transparent surface combines extensive editing abilities with simplest handling. Drag&drop actions and context menus (right mousekey) allow quick access to all functions and provide for a smooth workflow.
VSampler can operate either as a plug-in (VSTi, DXi) in your sequencer or as an independent program (ReWire, MIDI), it uses up to 32 separate audio outputs (ASIO, DirectSound). The included “virtual MIDI-cable” also connects VSampler to any MIDI-file player (check the GM soundset offer!) or classical MIDI sequencer.
VSampler loads instruments in the popular sampler formats SF2™, Gigastudio™, HALion™ 1 + 2, Kontakt™ 1.x, DLS, AKAI™ (S1000/S3000 CD and S5000/S6000 .AKP files) and E-MU™ III / IV CD. Furthermore VSampler loads LM4™ and Battery™ drumkits plus ReCycle™ (RCY, REX, RX2) and ACID™ drumloops. Your own Instruments are quickly created by dragging WAV or AIF Samples onto the on-screen keyboard.
VSamplers unique instrument preview allows you to test different sounds with a single mouse-click even during playback. Owners of an SB Live!™ /Audigy™ / X-Fi™ soundcard will be pleased that VSampler can also save files in the popular SF2 format.
VSampler's various tempo-synchronizable envelope types and LFO's, and its velocity sensitive filters ranging from subtle to aggressive are all inducive to sound editing. Instruments can be further refined using either the included effects (Reverb, Delay, Phaser, Distortion, EQ …) or any VST-plugin.

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. [Edited by Atoshi, December 08]
