Software Description

From CWI Technology comes the beta release of the TX16Wx VSTi Software Sampler. It is a FREE VSTi plugin, sampler software instrument modeled after hardware samplers of the 80s and 90s.

It is a VSTi Sampler with an intuitive graphical interface and professional features, all for free. It is one of the few sampler instruments, that has a fully documented file format. The TX16Wx Software Sampler is not a regular disk streaming library or preset-player, this plugin is for you to make, tweak and experiment on your own sounds. The fun of the old hardware samplers is now back in software.
