I hesitated when Paax Pro was set free. Used the CM Edition of Paax 3 which had a lot of problems. It was regularly crashing, but this was before I was regularly using REAPER and RENOISE. Delay caused very bad denormals on my laptop containing Celeron M CPU. It didn't like preserving settings such as filter cutoff or LFO rate after loading in a music app project containing it. Sometimes the user had to wait a while for a sample bank of a few MB to load in, and the biggest that I tried to use were the stuff from Computer Music Issue #106. It was very boring loading sounds which were almost single-cycle waveforms and creating a 64-patch bank out of it because this offers a small amount of variety and satisfaction. The reverb "freeze" was kewl but had to play live with it and couldn't render offline how I wanted. Didn't care about the second version displayed here after the "update" was released.

Works great. Simple, is not pretentious... good user interface.

One of the best (if not the best) sampler around. Try it and you see why (ps. take 30sec to read the manual)

This is the one to get if you don't want to spend any money. Please don't waste any time on the rest unless you want the FX. READ THE MANUAL.

This is one of the greatest free samples I've ever used. Perfect for every action with samples (from making drum sets to change it into full range piano/brass/etc). This is must have for everyone.

Propably best free sampler I've ever used. Althought I am using reason 4 right now, I strongly recomend this one.
