Koala sampler similar?

Is it possible to manipulate samples for use with a MIDI pad controller, like, for example, Koala Sampler?

Not yet, but it’s in the roadmap.

Currently you can use the Audio Player (look into “special chain”) and a pattern with a single note for triggering from pads.In this way you can also configure loops and one-shots, so the functionality is not so far from the desired one, but with a sub-optimal workflow.

You can think as we have all the bits (more or less), but we need to design and implement a proper workflow for this.
