Morgana Sampler

Interesting new sampler from 112dB, haven´t tested it yet myself, but judging from the reviews I believe it has some potential. The demo is really funky with a electro touch

Listen to it here >>

Morgana is an authentic representation of a vintage digital sampler, designed to be musical rather than accurate while simultaneously free from the clumsy interface or sub-megabyte RAM limitations plagued by old hardware. Morgana doesn’t try to boast the most impressive spec sheet, or the most transparent sound. By returning to a simpler architecture, Morgana actually transcends the limitations of typical software samplers, creating an experience that sounds and feels like an actual instrument–one that is inspiring and with a sound all its own.

Some highlights include:

  • Faithful representation of sampling technology circa 1984
  • High quality 4 pole lowpass filter per voice (analog modeled OTA design)
  • Non-destructive input modeling, including samplerate adjustment and mic preamp
  • Vintage microprocessor emulation including modulator quantizing and digital crosstalk
  • Support for multiple output modes, including mono, stereo, pseudo- stereo, and pseudo-surround with up to 8 outputs
  • Dynamic multisample keymapping
  • Each copy of Morgana sounds slightly different, just like analog hardware
  • Proprietary SampLink technology allows live sample recording across different applications
  • Specifically tailored for use in live performances
