The MiniSampler not only offers a series of factory presets, but it enables you to create custom instruments. It can also load custom instruments (.cbi files) that were created with MiniSampler in earlier versions of Cubasis. To assign MiniSampler to a track, follow these steps:

Basic Control Window


To open the MiniSampler editor, tap the Edit button at the bottom of the window.

Recording Samples

A new wave file has now been created in the Audio / My Samples folder in the MediaBay. To repeat the process, simply select a different key.

Importing Samples

Arranging Samples

Each sample is assigned to a root key (colored) that plays the sample with its original pitch. All keys within the colored range will be pitched accordingly (keys below the root key will have a lower pitch and vice versa).

To select a sample for editing, simply tap its root key on the keyboard (tapping any other key will leave the editing view unchanged).

Editing Samples

Tap the Edit tab to the left and you will find a sample editor similar to the one used for editing Audio Events.

Use horizontal swiping and pinching gestures to move your view or to zoom it in and out.

The editor will always show the sample of the last pressed root key.

The following tools are available:

File Management

Note: MiniSampler instruments are saved globally. Changes made to an instrument will affect all projects this instrument is used in! Note: The maximum file size for any custom instrument is 200 MB (50 MB per sample). Cubasis will automatically alert you when recording or importing beyond said limit. Note: Factory presets cannot be edited.
