@Lindon They live inside Kontakt's sample map too, it's just that with Kontakt there is only one sample map and it's part of the NKI.
I think the main different between Kontakt's groups and HISE's is that with Kontakt you can route them individually and apply effects and other processing to them individually which you can't do in HISE (yet...?).
In HISE the routing and modulation is at the sampler level rather than the group level.
Absoloutely - valuable stuff to include - I guess I was thinking inside a group you see a mapping of sample audio files, inside a Sample Map you see....so (to start with) same same...as a starting point. But hey no problem.
