Hey there Presonus Team. So I have been trying to get this feature request for the longest now but maybe someone who has close access to Presonus developers will see this and pass it on. There needs to be a marriage between Sample One XT and Impact XT. If anyone has seen how logics drum machine designer works. It’s like each drum pad is a quick sampler instrument. In Impact, each pad should be a Sample One Instrument. That way, when you create a pattern, and convert that pattern to a part, and explode the pitches to tracks, each track will be placed on a multisampled piano roll. That way you can play your 808s and hi hats up and down its own piano roll. I know that using automation can achieve this now but the workflow would be so much faster by marrying the two. Right now I have to make drum patterns in impact but I have to load 808s and hi hats separately in Sample One to achieve this. S1 is far beyond the other DAWs in my opinion, and adding this feature would be a GAME CHANGER in my opinion. Especially for hip hop and Trap producers. Someone please pass this feature request on. Thanks.

This would be a dope New Feature. Ableton does this so very well where you can convert samples from the sampler into the simpler and program different pitches like say the 808 kick as a bass line.

Allot of times the 808 kick or any short sample for that matter gets added to impact but no way to program different notes. The only way to achieve this in impact is by automating the pitch envelope but that’s not a realistic way to do this.

I’m with you EHall.

I totally agree  E Hall. Impact Sampler XXT would be  game changing.

I agree that this is needed for Studio One bigtime. This will shake up the game like “Hulk Smash”.

Yes, this would be a game-changer in SO5. Also, implement an Algorithm to scan Drumkit folders and put them in specific pads like Argonaut Atlas 1.4,  1 for kicks, 2 for snares 3 for claps, etc.... And I would love for you to add 3rd Party integration to work with Note Fx, Like Scaler 2, Cthulu, Chord Prism, and Captain Plugins like Universal Audio Luna. I love Studio One it is great DAW. It is the King of Workflow and these improvements would definitely help Producers workflow. Below is a Wishlist video from Ivan Calderon, who has a big following using Studio One 5.

Logic with the new DMD has best of both worlds. you can play it as a Drum Kit or individual samples at full pitch range without any converting.

I'm down only if they can update it without messing with my old projects. Sample one is the only plugin i use from presonus, i wouldn't want an issue to cause me to change to something else.

This would be amazing. I was hoping for this when I seen them implement a step sequencer into the daw back in V4. There seems to be a blind spot to modern hip hop production workflows when it comes to making these solutions. Hopefully we can get some more votes!

Yes this is what we need! Also a fade in/out in SampleOne and Impact would be so useful and easy to get implemented
