A software sampler. Mighty powerful and a damn sight easier to work than all that faff with hardware. I'm a hardware fan, but the limitations on sampling hardware are just too great, takes ages to load, limited memory size, can't save your patches in the sequencer etc etc. In terms of sampling it's just easier to go soft, you open the sequencer and there it is, all loaded up and ready to play.

It has just been upgraded to version 2.1 and I haven't tried it yet, but hopefully it is the long awaited fix for bugs that have plagued 2.0. I'm not going to say any more, it's good software by one of the major players in VST instruments, if sampling is your bag then it's probably well up to the job.
