Which software for creating own sample packs

Hello there, I am new to the world of samples. I would like to know if there is a software for windows, which helps me to organize, rename samples an export those in a folder and subfolders ( Kick, snare, synth, bass,…) to make them work with the fill function.

There’s quite a few sample management tools out there.
When it comes to sample management it’s best to try them out to see how you feel about them.
Here’s a selection of the ones i feel are worth having a look at (in no particular order):

If there are other solutions, i’m always happy to hear of a new program that i may have missed. :blush:


Thanks a lot for your recommendations. I habe tried Cosmos and ADSR. They are great to find and explore my samplecollection. But both allow drag an drop just inside a DAW instead in a folder. Or is there a way inside a DAW ?

Yeah there is a reason i didn’t add Cosmos. ADSR should work standalone though and exporting things should work via drag and drop as far as i know.

I think for your usecase, look at Sononym, SampleSort and Explorer. Those seem to be your best options.

Could you be more specific on what DAW you use or have tried before? I don’t think you would buy a full DAW for this purpose only…

When using Live (12) I could think of a workflow using the build in functionality. And of course some of the for mentioned plugins could simplify or enrich things.

Thanks for all your helpful suggestions. I will try next Sononym.
I have installed Live lite, but honestly I want to minimize my time on the computer.

Aisjam made a video on Youtube showing how he does it using Reaper.

I habe seen it but because of my poor english and empty purse I skipped working with Reaper.
Sononym is also to much money for me and I am testing Samplesort. For my usecase it seams enough.
