A month or two ago, TAL released a sampler VST. Unlike its high-end competitors like Kontakt, it's advertised as an attempt to recreate old-skool samplers over multi-gigabyte sample library playback.
Probably the most notable feature it has to implement this retro intention is its multiple DAC emulations, one of which seemingly based off of the Emulator II. Other modes consist of an AM6070 chip emulation, and a Sample-Hold mode that results in the lo-fi sound so many retro nuts are used to. There also is a Linear DAC mode, but this has resulted in tuning issues for me, a bug I hope will be fixed later.
Filters are overall great, though I can't hold back the criticism that there's only one filter for all of the layers. Same for the envelopes, though the modulation section makes up for it a tad via how many options and combinations are available.
No presets come built into TAL-Sampler other than a few waveforms. However, there are some presets freely downloadable separately, including a ton of samples taken from the archives of the late Steve Howell/Hollow Sun. And, should you wish to import and export your own samples, it works with compressed audio as well, particularly FLAC, which is a lossless compression format for audio.
The TAL-Sampler is available from TAL's website. There is a demo version available, though the price for the paid version is relatively affordable.
Enjoy, fellow retro sampler nuts!
