Please someone confirm if 14 notes poly stands for stereo samples as well because this is essential for me to know before I get one for myself. Thanks!

I can check it out, but I will not be back near my microSAMPLER until next week sometime. Does the manual give you any indication? I don't think I have tried that many samples playing at once (mono or stereo).

Yes the microSampler plays 14 notes of stereo polyphony BUT you start losing polyphony if any of those samples is time-stretched. For each time-stretched sample, subtract 2 notes of polyphony (mono sample or stereo doesn't make a difference).

Two ways to beat this:
    (1) Use pitch stretching instead of time stretching. You'll have all 14 notes of polyphony, but the sample will play back with that chipmunk pitch-shifted sound. That might work great for some loops but not for others.

    (2) The best way is to time-stretch the loop then resample it. Now you have new sample that plays back at the project tempo without time-stretching, so you have your 14 notes of polyphony again.
