    Would be perfect to have this search browser as a VST-plugin in the DAW, so that you can directly find and use samples from within.

    I am from Hong Kong and I tried to donate some to your website but it turned out the system showed my location is not accepted to donate to your website, it’s a pity.

    Please tell me the way I can donate, thanks.

    The workshop was unfortunately cancelled last minute due to organisational issues but it will most likely be re-scheduled soon. Thanks for the interest.

    I would like to enroll for this workshop. Any update on the re-schedule?

    It would be ideal if this sample browser were available as a VST plugin that could be used in the digital audio workstation (DAW), allowing users to immediately find and use samples from within the program.
