what sampler for cubase ? not halion
hi guys

i want a sampler for cubase - the simper the better really

i have come from logic and am v used to the exs24 which comes with logic

looking for similar

i have cubase 10 but the halion with it is basic vs

all i want to do is load samples and be good to go - ie keymap them easily

whats my choices ?

please dont say kontact as i find it way to hard to use

Do you know about the built-in Sampler track?

The built in sampler(track) or if it has to be multi sample processing, TAL-Sampler is easy to use.

ah yes , i do the built in one - drag and drop - super cool - but wanted something else - doesnt appear to be much around - i do know tal - but its not really my thing - have found an alternative to the exs now - cant rem name - not as good though

What about this one ?!.

This website says it free!


Its a emulation of the well known Yamaha

The funny thing is, with Halion 6, anyone
can create their one instrument , including
their own mini sampler, i think.
Maybe there is a free halion sonic 3 se
sampler on the internet ??!.

Cubase doesn't include Halion, it does include Halion Sonic SE (which is a stripped down version of Halion Sonic, they both lack the sample abilities of Halion among others.. Halion > Halion Sonic > Halion Sonic SE
Cubase does offer the sampler track though, a very basic sample function on a track. Minimal options.. but still i can do the job often.

A good sampler with lots of synth options too.. and being fully made to work well with cubase, would be Halion 6 (not sonic!)

yeah , its a bit poor that cubase doesnt bundle halion - i came from logic x which is much cheaper and does give you the exs sampler - i think they should give halion away for free if youve bought full cubase 10 vs - it wasnt cheap at all
