Atlas is a new sampler plugin for PC & Mac that uses artificial intelligence to find the samples in the right style and character.

Artificial intelligence is an topic that has more and more entered in the entertainment industry (smartphones…) in the last year. Now the trend seems to enter also in the music software market. Algonaut released recently a new sampler plugin with the name Atlas that use artificial intelligence to find the perfect samples.

Atlas allows you to have an overview of all your samples in one place with a map based on style and character. With this feature, you create very quickly unlimited drum kits and use drag-and-drop to any application. The aim of this plugin is to simply and speed up the workflow with samples.

What Is Atlas Sampler?

At the centre of all our products is SoundClass, our own proprietary AI with a little bit of magic that is the first of its kind. It has been built from the ground up using customised neural networks, deep learning, and tailored audio analysis techniques. We’ve trained SoundClass to be capable of listening to any new audio content and determining its category and a description of its characteristics. This opens the door for features and products that are yet unheard of.

We are constantly evolving and growing SoundClass with increased capabilities to be used with new sounds and future products. It is constantly learning and we pass that knowledge to you through software updates that you can benefit from. AI is not replacing the musician. We build our products so that the AI solves the problems that get in the way of your creativity. It works with you, so you can make great music without any barriers.


  • The Map: Find that perfect sample faster. Atlas’ AI can find every drum sound on your computer and create a map you can scroll and zoom with all your samples in one place.
  • Instant Drumkits: Find inspiration in randomization. One click and Atlas chooses 8 samples. Lock or hotswap them individually. Rinse and repeat. Tweak how they sound using the combo controls.
  • Drag and Drop: Drag and drop samples from Atlas to your favourite sampler/sequencer for more control. Atlas can be used as a replacement browser for your existing workflow.
  • Bundled MIDI Clips: Make inspirational drums in seconds by dragging included MIDI patterns from Atlas into your DAW as MIDI will trigger the drum kit. Spam “New Kit” for instant drum loops.
  • Like/Dislike: The more you use Atlas, the more it gets to know you. As samples are liked or disliked, Atlas learns the styles of samples you prefer and helps you hone your sound.
  • Analyse your own samples: Analyze any of your own sample packs regardless of size. Create seperate maps for genre, brand, style or however you organise your samples. Analysis happens locally, not in the cloud.

Atlas comes with a ‘Welcome Pack’ of samples hand picked from the Sample Magic collection. These samples have been recorded from a variety of drum machines, studio recordings and other sources and with custom layering and processing, sound great in any style of music.

Atlas for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) is available now for the introduction price of $99 USD (regular $149 USD).

    This is how to discover some unused sample among a big library.
