Solaris as a (basic) sampler?

Post by Mefistophelees »

The solaris can play back samples and I believe that's soon to be improved.
There are also audio inputs, so how about giving it some sampling capability?

I'm not suggesting anything fancy, just basic recording capability and a way to set some basic parameters.
I'm thinking old school here, there's plenty of modern software for advanced sampling capabilities.

One thing I would like is to downsample and bit crush during the sampling process - so as to mimic old 80s samplers.
I'd also like to be able to have limited / no band limiting on playback - again, this is to mimic old samplers and especially the Amiga computer where sample noise was part of the sound!

It's just an idea, I've been watching some videos on old samplers and they certainly had their own sound - I also used to listen to a lot of music on the Amiga back in the day - it was even more distinctive playing 8 Khz / 8 bit samples with no band limiting!

I will have to investigate what it would take to add a basic sampling function to the Solaris. Never say never!
