- Sampler also features:
- A Pitch Envelope with two successive Pitch and Time phases.
- An AHDSR Envelope for controlling Amplitude.
- Sample Waveform Display additionally shows Pitch- , Amplitude- and Filter-Envelope.
- Samples can also be opened and edited in an external editor and then reloaded into the RMV right from RMV user interface.
- Switchable response to MIDI Note Off.
- Supported sample formats:

- Four specialized "Librarians" are now incorporated into the RMV. Each Librarian has sophisticated search capabilities and is used for the storage and retrieval of various types of data that the RMV supports. The Librarians can be used with Pads (individual drum sounds), Kits, MIDI Grooves and Loops.
- Samples can be imported using the RMV Sample Browser (supporting favourite folders and pre-listening.
- The Kit Librarian features a "Live" control that enables setup of different Kits to be loaded using MIDI program change messages.
- Samples, Pads, Kits, Grooves and Loops can be browsed while the RMV is playing.
