Key Features

1. Automatic Tag Matching

Samplism features a breakthrough technology that automatically categorizes audio samples into tags. With Samplism, you don’t need to waste your time anymore on manually categorizing your audio files. Just drag and drop directories on your Mac into Samplism. All audio samples are automatically categorized into tags. It’s practically a magic.

2. Search for Audio Samples using Tags and Auto Tags

Samplism provides a simple, quick and easy way to search for audio samples using tags and auto tags. By simply selecting a tag, all its corresponding samples will be shown in the Sample List. In addition, auto tags allow you to search for samples with more specific criteria.

3. Manual Tag Matching

The automatic tag matching feature in Samplism allows you to quickly and conveniently classify audio samples into tags. But sometimes the matching results may not be accurate. With the manual tagging feature, you can classify samples more precisely.

4. User-Defined Tags

In addition to a rich set of built-in tags, Samplism allows you to create your own tags and group tags. With the user-defined tagging feature, you can categorize audio samples much more accurately.

5. Organize Audio Samples with Folders

Samplism provides folders and folder groups to help you organize audio samples better. Simply select audio samples in a library and drag and drop them into a folder. It is simple, quick and easy.

6. Advanced Sample Player

Samplism provides a simple, easy-to-use yet powerful sample player which allows you to play an entire audio file, the waveform selection, or transient regions.


7. Files View

The Files View allows you to simply and quickly search for audio samples on a directory-basis.

8. Simplism: the Samplism mini player

Simplism is designed to use with DAWs or other audio apps together on a single monitor screen. It takes up very little space on your screen and still provides most key features of Samplism such as navigating, previewing and searching for your audio samples.


9. Export Audio Samples

With Samplism, exporting as audio files has never been easier. Simply select audio samples, the waveform selection, or transient regions. Samplism provides various export options such as file type, sample rate and bit depth. With just a click, all selected samples are automatically converted as audio files, which can be used in other DAWs.

10. Import Third-Party Library (*)

Samplism provides a super easy way to import well-known third-party libraries installed on your Mac. Samplism automatically detects well-known third-party libraries, so you don’t need to worry about finding the directory location of third-party libraries. No setup is required. All you have to do is to simply import them with just one-click.

(* Logic Pro X, Ableton Live, Native Instruments, Loopcloud, Splice and AKAI MPC supported)

11. Working with DAWs

Simply drag and drop audio samples, the waveform selection or transient regions into DAWs. It just works. A powerful drag and drop feature in Samplism greatly improves workflow and increase creativity. Sampling has never been easier with Samplism.

  1. Why don’t you deliberately reply to my suggestion of message function? Intentionally ignore??? If you don’t want to realize that function, you can say it, but it’s meaningless not to reply.


  2. Salut, cela fait un moment que j’utilise samplism et c’est tout bon.
    Cet outil a accéléré mon workflow et à mon avis c’est le meilleur comparé aux autres que j’ai possédé
    Il répond à tout mes besoins en terme de recherche et est très bien optimisé en terme de fenêtre.
    C’est le top
    Merci pour cet outil indispensable
    Moi tout me va il vaut largement son prix

  3. Hi. Do you know if it is possible to have one’s Samplism library accessible over multiple machines, either via external drive or cloud service such as google drive/dropbox? I have my sample library on one SSD and would like to do some manual tagging on both my laptop and desktop machines. Cheers!

    1. Yes – I do this all the time. I’m on a Mac, so I simply store the Samplism files on iCloud, and point both versions on each computer towards the same files.
      I use another sync app (chronosync) to keep the samples themselves in sync. If you’re on windows there are no doubt equivalents. (Store Samplism on Microsoft OneDrive, perhaps?)

  4. Hi,
    It’s very interesting piece of software. Do you plan to index ID3 comment ?
    All my tracks are tagged using ID3 tags.

    Thank you !!


  5. Coming from Easy Rex Converter, does Samplism have a “save to original folder” option for exporting? (and would you mind adding this function to Easy Rex Converter too? 😉 )

    The sample packs I buy usually come in a pre-made folder structure, and I would really like to convert them a bit quicker by just doing the whole pack at one go – right now, I have to convert them subfolder by subfolder to maintain the folder structure.

  6. I’m a long-time user of Samplism. I just wanted to say that although there are now a bunch other competing apps – even Waves have launched one – nothing comes close to Samplism in terms of the ability to set your samples how you want them.

    All the other apps focus on AI, but at its best this can only approximate what people generally consider to be a “bass” or “pad”.

    Samplism lets you go much further. Samplism lets me, for example use some “pads” as pads, and other “pads” are synth sweeps, to be used more as an effect. It does this by allowing an extraordinary level of manual control. Automatic tagging is still there, but I rarely use it: to me, the supreme power in having a wonderful collection of samples that you know inside out because you’ve spent time with it in Samplism.

    Keep up the excellent work.


  7. Is there a way to send all of the Samplism tag information into Maschine, and if not consider it a feature request! (Would it even be possible).

    Also I’d love to see a seperate app with the same idea for song tagging from all of the biggest dj program (Traktor, Pioneer and Serato)

      1. We totally agree with your comment.
        Unfortunately, making an Apple Loop file requires Apple’s proprietary technology.
        So there’s practically no way for third-party developers to implement that feature.
        Anyway, thanks for your feedback.


  8. Hey, why can’t I search by BPM? I thought for sure this could do that. I feel a bit ripped off now, having bought the full version assuming it could like other sample managers.

  9. Hello. I’m trying to install the demo version, and it asks me to either create or select a library for Samplism, but no matter what I do I can’t get it to work. What am I supposed to do?
