The sampler allows you to store a number of samples or loops that are available for easy access. It can be accessed from Menu->Sampler, but this could depend on the skin you are using.
In the default skin, there are 6 sampler slots available, each with their own volume control and three-band equalizer.
To load samples in a sample slot, you can simply drag&drop from the playlist or browser, or you can drag&drop from a deck (in the chiron skin, click the time display to start dragging a track)
You can also use the button left of the bpm in the sampler, which will give you the option to copy a loop from a deck to the sampler slot.
Simply create a loop on one of the decks, press the button and select 'Get loop from deck 1'. A loop will be created, and it will start playing synchronized with the deck it was copied from, so you could increase the volume of the sample and stop the deck if you want.
The title display will show the name of the sample, or the song the sample was created from, and the waveform indicates the play position of the sample.
The loop button can be used to toggle looping the sample on or off. The play button will start the sample from the start, the stop button will stop playback.
The cue button allows you to listen to the sample through the headphone output, the L, M and H knobs control the low/mid/high equalizer frequencies.
You can match the speed of the sample with a deck by selecting 'match sample to deck' from the menu on the button left of the bpm display.
If you are using an external mixer, you can select for each sample on which output it will be played using 'Play on output x' from the drop-down menu.
You can also select to link the sample to a specific deck. This will make the sample play on the same output as that deck, and with the same volume (so you have to use the deck's volume to control the volume instead of the slider of the sample)
By dragging the title, you can also drag a sample to a different sample slot, or back to a deck in which case it will also start playing again synchronized.
A set of samples can be stored by using the 'save' button and entering a name for the sampleset.
Later, a stored sampleset can be loaded again by using the 'load' button and selecting the sampleset.
By selecting 'load sampleset on startup', the last sampleset that you loaded will automatically be loaded when starting the program.
Note that you have to use 'save' every time you change something, or the changes will not be stored.
A sample set stores which sample is loaded in each deck, but also the volume, output channel or link and equalizer.
