Shareware Sample Editor

D-Sound Pro 2.5.2 is a Macintosh shareware utility that is capable of managing AIFF sound files and MIDI Sample I/O. It permits sophisticated sound manipulation, such as programmable X-fade looping, time stretch and frequency shifting, resampling using interpolation, pitch conversion, normalization, and many other features. Best of all, it includes Akai SCSI sample dump and sample directory support.

Hi again,

D-Sound Pro was the industry standard to edit/transfer samples through MIDI to load up your sampler. It can read samples in many different formats (Akai, Roland...) which is very useful when you have a bunch of diskettes full of samples and you want to preview individual files.

It is a must if you are working with outboard samplers

Back in time I heard  lot about this software but I never had any chance to gave a try... I personally think (dear MusicWorks) that would be massive , upload and share it within the community...
