  1. Sampler: A sampler is an electronic musical instrument similar in some respects to a synthesizer but, instead of generating sounds, it uses recordings of sounds that are loaded or recorded into it by the user and then played back by means of the sampler program itself, a keyboard, sequencer or other triggering device to perform or compose music. Because these samples are now usually stored in digital memory the information can be quickly accessed. A single sample may often be pitch-shifted to produce musical scales and chords.
    • also known as Sample playback synthesizer, Samples
  2. Sampler a.k.a. Sampler album: A Sampler album is an album of selected tracks from other albums released by a record company, at a reduced price, to stimulate sales in the individual albums.
