It's possible to choose between different digital analog converters (DAC's) to get the vintage sound of different hardware samplers inside your DAW. TAL don't make cheap bit crushing or decimation on the output signal.
TAL really down-sample the sample to the desired sampling frequency, then process the data depending on the chosen DAC and up-sample it to the desired pitch. Most DAC modes offer a LEVEL slider.
This feature allows the user to reduce the volume of the recorded sample and decreases the sample quality. Load your favourite high-quality sample and make it sound vintage and noisy. The 24dB low pass filter will like it!
The Following Diagram Shows the Signal Flow if You Choose The DAC Emu II Mode:
The plug-in has four layers and can play four samples simultaneous. There is also a simple SFZ import for samples that imports the mapping and sample paths, but the plug-in also contains an easy-to-use mapping editor.
TAL-Sampler is available in the VST, Audio Unit and AAX plug-in format. You can load and play your own samples in every common sample format (*.wav, *.aiff, *.aif, *.mp3, *.ogg, *.flac). Import samples with drag & drop from finder or explorer. There is also an intuitive sample browser that helps to find samples fast.
Some nice additions like a vintage real-time time stretcher and the possibility to modulate the sample loop positions.
