Is Serato Sample the best modern sampler?


Serato Sample is a quick and intuitive sampler plugin that gets out of the way of your creativity and allows you to get into a creative flow with minimal fuss.


Serato Sample uses Serato’s Pitch ‘n Time algorithm which is one of the best in the business. To our ears this time-scaling and pitch shifting sounds more natural and musical than similar applications like Ableton Live. You can manipulate samples to the extreme and still have usable results. This feature is super useful!


Sample will work in most DAWs that support AU/VST* plugins including Ableton Live, FL Studio, Logic Pro and Maschine. Serato has recently released Serato Studio which fulfilled our desire for a stand alone application. You can find our review of Serato Studio here.


If you are looking for a low fuss and inspiring plugin to flip samples inside your DAW you’d be hard pressed to find a more enjoyable application than Serato Sample. There are still a few features we’d like to see added such as saving sample sets independently from from each sessions, hopefully future versions will include additional features.
