support: FAQ

Q: I have downloaded the demo version of the program and I cannot play some loops (they look black). Why?

A: The demo version is supplied with an incomplete set of samples and loops. When you have registered your copy of Samplisizer, you will be sent the serial number and the link to the missing part of the audio library by e-mail.

Q: What is the point of the Pre-Render mode and its handle in the right bottom part of the main window of Samplisizer?

A: The Pre-Render mode is vital for those having weak computers as it allows to listen to the created compositions with no delays.

Q: My sound card does not support the 16-bit 44100Hz stereo mode. Does it mean that Samplisizer will not work on my computer?

A: Yes.

Q: Why do Samplisizer have only 12 sound channels?

A: If you choose the right approach to the music composing in Samplisizer, 12 channels should be enough. Keep in mind that any loop in Samplisizer can be a mixture of 12 other loops. Use this feature if you really miss sound channels.

Q: What is BPM and why should I set it up?

A: BPM (beats-per-minute) is a value that determines the tempo of the composition that is being created. It is up to you which tempo to choose for your composition.

Q: I've made a customized loop and failed to give it German language
name. The font seams having no German letters....

A: We haven't made version which lets you create loops with German names. That will be implemented in future releases.

Q: What is the NCP format?

A: The NCP format is a format for saving loops in Samplisizer 1.0. Loops created in this format are recalculated to match the tempo.

Q: What is the WCP format?

A: The WCP format is a format for saving compositions in Samplisizer 1.0. When saving a composition in this format all the created or imported samples and loops that are used in the composition will be added to its file. It makes sense to save your compositions in this format if you used non-original samples or loops (that is different from the original loops and samples of Samplisizer), and wish to save it to archives or send it to your friends who use Samplisizer. When you open such a composition, Samplisizer will ask you to specify the name for each new sample or groove under which it will save them. Please note that loops and samples from the original (Internal) sections of the library are not saved in this format even if they are changed or replaced.
