Soundplant 26 is a self-contained digital audio performance program that turns your computer keyboard into a fully customizable sample-triggering device.

Soundplant 26 is a self-contained digital audio performance program that turns your computer keyboard into a fully customizable sample-triggering device. It allows the assignment of sound files of unlimited size to virtually any keyboard keys, with no external devices needed and no MIDI involved. It can be used as a drum pad, to add a live track to an already made song, to mix together tracks in realtime, to create music or loops from scratch, to quickly sketch sound designs, to give new life to old sounds, or as a performance or installation tool. Because it is not a synthesizer and instead uses your own digital samples (it's a 'software sampler'), Soundplant is a virtually limitless electronic instrument. A simple graphic interface provides for drag-and-drop, point-and-click configuration of each key, including several options which control the way each sound is triggered, along with pitch, offsets, looping, volume, and panning; keyboard configurations can be saved and loaded.Feature List: 72 keyboard keys can be used to trigger sounds, all with low latency; drag and drop sound files on to keyboard keys for quick and easy key assignment; samples can be loaded to RAM for instant cueing, or played from disk, allowing for minimal RAM usage and unlimited sound length; pitch adjust allows micro-tuning to the 100th of a semitone and a 10 octave range; easily batch assign the same sound to multiple keys at varying pitches; auto-'splice' pieces of a sound across multiple keys; precise sound start and end offset control; memory-efficiently duplicate key configurations onto other keys using the same sample; realtime volume and panning control for each key; no MIDI needed or involved; customizable sound triggering, allowing for looping, sustains, restarts, muting, pausing, and off-triggering; keyboard keys highlight while playing; no-nag freeware version plays wav, aif, and au files; registered version adds mp3 support. ( Note: Mac version is an experimental beta)

Soundplant is a completely free software. You can free download and use it as long as you like.
