Overview

The Plugin Alliance MEGA Sampler comes packed with over 7,500 loops including Native Instruments sound selections for the initial release! Process all these samples through modeled filters like the Knifonium, PPG, and new FX pedals from our partner brands Black Box Analog Design, AMEK, PPG, SPL, Maag, elysia, and more!

Online Sample Library
The Plugin Alliance MEGA Sampler is a sample player with an online sample library service built for your DAW. With an ever-growing sample library, easily navigate and find the perfect sounds for your productions. All you need to do is drag and drop a sample from our library into any of the 16 sample slots, which will automatically adapt to the BPM and Master Key of your session!

Stay in the Zone
You no longer need a separate application outside your DAW to load in your samples, everything comes from one plugin, speeding up the process of making music.

Ever-growing content library
Our content creators put together over 7500 (and growing) loops that will make your productions stand out. Everything from Cinematic to Electronic Music, Hip Hop to Jazz, Rock to Pop, even non-musical samples like sound effects have been included in our sample library, ensuring that you have an up-to-date sound for whatever you are creating.

Play it the way you want
The MEGA Sampler features various playback modes such as Loop, Ping Pong, Reverse, Reversed Loop. Zoom in by dragging any part of the sample in the waveform view. Move your start and end markers on the beat grid to play or loop specific parts of a sample.

Flexible Audio Engine
A flexible sampler engine developed by Brainworx Audio can warp samples according to the key and bpm of your session. Choose between three algorithms ‘bx_efficient’, bx_pro' & 'bx_flex' depending on your session to save CPU!

Modeled filters
Process each of the 16 sample slots individually with a filter of your choice, we’ve included modeled filters like the Knifonium for an instant tube sound, the bx_oberhausen for a beautiful rich character, and a brand new filter from our PPG synthesizer brand!

Plugin Alliance FX Rack
A new line of branded stompbox FX pedals from the Plugin Alliance family has been added to the MEGA Sampler like the Black Box Analog HG-2, a brand new PPG Reverb with freeze functionality, AMEK EQ, elysia Alpha Comp, Maag LMF Band, Brainworx bx_delay, bx_blackdist 2, and more! All pedals can be re-arranged in a scrollable chain according to taste.

Flexible searching
A huge variety of sound packs have been added for those moments you find yourself searching for the perfect sample, simply type or filter out keywords, genres, character, instrument type, bpm, key, for instant results.

Offline? No problem, you can still search and use any of the content you have downloaded, as well as your own personal samples in the MEGA Sampler.

The MEGA Sampler also allows you to add and tag your own samples. It will even analyze and recommend a key and bpm for them. After that, you can easily find your samples in your collection and process them with the features of the MEGA Sampler.

Future Updates
The MEGA Sampler is an online sample service, which means we will constantly be updating the sampler and its content. Some of the features coming soon include 16-voice polyphony, transient slicing, one-shots, and more!
