offset

The offset used to play the sample, in sample units.

The player will reproduce samples starting with the very first sample in the file, unless offset is specified. It will start playing the file at the offset sample in this case. Note that this if this causes the region to play from a point where the value in the file is not zero, this may result in a click in the audio. When modulating offset with a MIDI CC, it’s generally not possible to ensure the offset will always land on a near-zero point, so a small ampeg_attack value can be used to create a quick fade-in and avoid clicks.

Examples
offset=3000

offset=32425

Uses include: having the player skip pre-attack pick noise in guitar samples; phase-aligning samples from various microphones; skipping the start of a saxophone sample in legato instruments.
