I think you are absolutely right. I am new to Studio One, but I've used Maschine in the past, and I've noticed straight away that unfortunately Sample One Xt is nowhere near, yet. That is what I think, of course. I am ready to stand corrected. I saw somebody suggested going with Impact XT instead!? I am going to try. I mean the only option in Sample One XT, is "Create Slices". Yeah but . . on what basis. Transients? Ok, much simpler to use, but even maschine is easy to use, but I had far more options, and in fact the results where much more accurate. I've tried tried doing the chopping myself and then drag the sample in to a new instance of Sample One XT, if I am trying to make an instrument, or drag the sample on the pads of Impact Xt, if is about drums. Not exactly time saving. These are my two bits, I hope, and I am sure Presonus people, will make things better.
