Swiss-based music software company Samplab has introduced Samplab, a plugin that lets you edit and rearrange pitches in polyphonic audio samples.

Here’s what the developers have to say about the plugin:

“When you drag and drop an audio file into the plugin, it is sent to our server for processing. Once this is completed, you recieve the result with all the notes in the audio separated. In order to edit the notes, we generate a MIDI file that you can drag into the Samplab track.

From now on, the plugin acts like a virtual instrument: It gets the MIDI events as input from your DAW and plays the (edited) notes. If you don’t make any changes to the MIDI, the result should sound the same as the original audio. Of course, you can also just use the MIDI file for other things.”

Pricing and Availability

Samplab is available now as a free download, for Mac & Windows.

Note: Samplab is currently limited to editing samples with a maximum of 127 notes.  Because this is a client-server app, an Internet connection is required.
