- All payments are processed by Stripe and we make every effort to ensure that your details are secure and protected at all times.
- How do Stripe payments work?
- 1. Registering your details:
By clicking the ‘Remember me’ option on our shopping cart, your credit card details will be securely stored for quick checkout on samplephonics.com and other sites which also accept Stripe.

- What formats do you provide?
- Our sample packs and sampler instruments contain information on what formats are available on the main product page, and you can select different file types and packages from the drop-down menu.
Waveform Audio File Format (.wav) contain raw audio data (although they can be used for non audio data) and are compatible with nearly all music software programs.
Audio Interchangeable File format (.aiff or .aif) are similar to Wav files in that they contain uncompressed audio data, but can also contain other information and tags. They are compatible with most music software programs.
Apple Loops (.aiff or .aif) contain hit-points and other data alongside the audio, which enables them to adjust to different tempos automatically, something Wav files are not capable of in their native form. They are compatible with Apple Logic Express, Logic Pro and Garageband, Soundtrack Pro and more. They have the same extension (.aiff or .aif) as an AIFF or AIF file that does not contain extra looping and hit-point info.
Rex2 Loops are similar to Apple Loops in that they contain hit points and extra dat along with the audio, and are compatible with PreSonus Studio One, Propellerhead Reason, Steinberg Cubase, Steinberg Nuendo, Cockos REAPER, Apple Logic, Digidesign Pro Tools, Ableton Live, Cakewalk Project5, Cakewalk Sonar, Image-Line FL Studio, MOTU Digital Performer, MOTU Mach 5 (software sampler), and Synapse Audio Orion Platinum, among others.
Acidised Wave Files ).wav) contain information similar looping information to Apple Loops and Rex2 Loops and are compatible with Sony Acid Pro. Whilst they are likely to work in all software programs that support the .wav format, they may not display the looping and tempo information in some programs.
Kontakt (.nki) is a sampler instrument format compatable with Native Instruments' Kontakt. These kind of files usually provide the sampler instrument with all the necassary information to display the correct parameters and features specific, and will be provided with a collection of audio files in .wav or .aiff/.aif format.
EXS24 (.exs) is a sampler instrument format compatable with the EXS24 sampler, found within Apple's Logic Express and Logic Pro software.
