With the introduction of Engine 3.0 comes the all new Drop Sampler. All Engine DJ devices now offer 8 slots to store and trigger one-shot style samples. This article will cover the setup process and some common FAQs.
How can I load samples to the pads?
All-in-on devices - To load a sample to the pad for all-in-one devices, open the library view and swipe the desired sample to the right. You will then have 8 pads shown on screen, tapping the desired on-screen pad or physical pad on a deck in while Sampler mode will load the sample to the pad.
Media Players - On the Media Players, the workflow is slightly different. From the library, perform a partial swipe (until you see the Green LOAD button), then tap the word “Load”, you will then have 8 pads shown on screen. Tapping the on-screen pad or physical pad will load the sample. The workflow is different to avoid interrupting the established Media Player track load workflow.
How do I access the new Sampler pad mode?
To access Sampler pad mode, press and hold Shift and then press the Roll pad mode button.
How can I adjust the volume of the Drop Sampler?
To adjust the volume of the Drop Sampler, swipe down from the top of the screen to see the new Sampler Volume slider in the Control Center. Adjusting this level adjusts the overall level of the Sampler Output.
How can I stop a playing sample?
To stop a playing sample, hold Shift and press the sample pad that is currently playing.
How can I eject or unload a sample from one of the Sampler slots/pads?
To eject or unload a sample from one of the Sampler slots/pads, first ensure you are in the library view and the sample is not currently playing, then hold Shift and press the sample pad that you wish to eject/unload.
What output is used for the Drop Sampler?
On most Engine DJ devices, the Drop Sampler is routed to the Main Outputs and the volume is controlled via the Sampler Volume slider in the Control Center. For the Prime 4, the Drop Sampler is routed to Channel 4 and can be controlled via the Channel 4 channel strip.
