Usine provides 6 different sampler modules each with their own characteristics. All samplers are Mono to 64 channels of recording/playback, and can load most common formats such as mp3, wav, aif, aiff and flac audio files.
You will find classic samplers, granular samplers, MIDI samplers, and various. You can add markers, pitch, volume, panoramic curves, and zoom in the waveform.
Note that Usine use a 32-bit float audio format for all the sample recorders.

The audio-sampler-grain and the audio-sampler-grain-recorder provide similar functionality as the classic sampler, with the addition of a powerful granular engine. Grain options include Grain size, speed synchronization and manual percentage adjustments, and the ability to choose windowing options to shape the grains (hanning, gaussian, bartlett,etc).
The granular sampler allows to modify the speed of the sample without affecting the pitch or modify the pitch without affecting the speed. It can be used, for example, to adapt a drum loop to a different tempo while maintaining pitch of original percussive elements.
It works well for speed modification between 80% and 120%.
The audio-sampler-midi can be used directly with incoming MIDI messages.
It uses banks files to map MIDI Notes.
