Sample Attributes

Sample attributes allow you to define settings for an audio sample before loading it into a hardware or software sampler.

Sample attributes do not process the sample, they just provide the file properties that the receiving sampler can use. This includes information about the pitch of the sample, which can be detected automatically, the key range that the sample should span, and the velocity range to occupy. For WAV and AIFF files, this information is saved in the header of the file. By default, there are no sample attributes in an audio file.


Depending on your sampler and the protocol that you use for communicating, the sample attributes may not be supported.
