Use SAM-1

Level: Master

Sam-1 is an easy to use instrument sample player for Soundation Studio and includes a set of standard instruments such as pianos, organs, strings and guitar.

All included instruments are available through the drop down menu labelled “Select Instrument”. Browse it and choose one to load it up.

Sam-1 also includes four knobs to shape the playback of the instrument you choose. The knobs are standard “amp envelope” controls that appear throughout many other of our instruments and synthesizers. An amp envelope controls the amplitude or the volume movement of the instrument by adjusting the four knobs.


Understanding the Knobs

Attack: Set the amount of time it takes for the note to reach the maximum level.
Decay: Set the amount of time it takes for the note to move from the maximum level to the sustain level.
Sustain: Set the maximum level (loudness) of the note while it is held.
Release: Set the amount of time it takes for the note to drop to silence after the Sustain level.
