Using the MiniSampler, you can create custom instruments either by importing audio files or recording them directly. To assign MiniSampler to a track, follow these steps:

Basic Control Window


To open sample editing and configuration, tap the central e button at the top of the window.

Recording Samples

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

Importing Samples

Arranging Samples

Each sample is now assigned to a root key (colored), holding your sample's original pitch. All keys within the 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.

To set the position of your keyboard, drag the light region in the miniature keyboard. Sliding the left or right marker changes the keyboard's range.

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 can be edited, however no changes will be saved. Upon launching Cubasis, a preset will be restored back to its initial state.
