Ableton Live 9 ~ Simpler
"Simpler is an instrument that integrates the basic elements of a sampler with a set of classic synthesizer parameters.” - Ableton Reference Manual
Ableton’s Simpler may look less powerful than sampler, but unlike Sampler, Simpler allows us slice up and time warp our samples so that we can play them back much more creatively.
Good luck with your Simpler endeavors. And as always... RTFM!
