I don\'t yet have any of these ``plug-in\'\' sample libraries that come with their own sample-playback interface. And I\'ve asked this question about individual plug-in libraries on various threads, (but haven\'t seen a straight answer yet):
Can you edit the samples??
As you can with Gigasampler/Studio, can you export the samples from the program in a batch, apply processing, say in SoundForge, over an entire set of samples (tighten the attacks, change the EQ, pluck off the tails for release triggers, whatever) and import them all back into the program to set up a new instrument??
If the answer to these questions is no, then I don\'t like this development of plug-in libraries AT ALL. If the reason these constraints are being placed on the user\'s access to the samples is copy protection, then I think we would be sacrificing too much in useability and it\'s silly. The crackers WILL crack these programs anyway and offer the cracked program plus the entire proprietary file set and send them to each other via broadband or copied onto CDRs.
