Highlife Performance Sampler

Unleash your creativity with HighLife, a performance sampler meticulously designed for the modern computer musician. HighLife is not just a sampler, it's a comprehensive sound design tool that comes with a built-in wave editor, five integrated effects, and a flexible modulation route.

HighLife's unique morphable scheme allows you to glide between different states, creating dynamic and expressive sounds that will breathe life into your music. The sampler's 32-bit floating point based engine and 128 programs with unlimited zones open up a universe of sonic possibilities, allowing you to craft sounds that are truly your own.

HighLife supports a wide range of import formats including WAV, MP3, OGG, RAW, FLAC, SND (Akai MPC 2000) and even AKP (Akai S5000/S6000) and SFZ programs. This means you can easily integrate HighLife into your existing workflow and start creating immediately.

With HighLife, you're not just playing notes, you're sculpting sound. Its advanced features like selectable interpolation engines, syncable LFO with configurable Phase, and stepping-free modulation sends, pitch bend and modulation to morphing wheels, give you unparalleled control over your sound. Whether you're a producer looking for a powerful sampler, a composer in need of unique textures, or a sound designer seeking new sonic landscapes, HighLife is your gateway to audio exploration.
