Sample Any Sound to Create Music

When used as a pitched tone (Sampling Melody Tone), the sample can be used to play melodies and other musical lines. When used in a drum set (Sampling Drum Tone), the samples can be used to replace individual drum sounds.
The maximum sample time is about 10 seconds for the Melody Tone and about three seconds for each Drum Tone.
