I personally think that both Alpha Sampler and especially Omni Sampler would be vastly improved if multi-layering was enabled so that samples could appear over the primary sample when triggered by different velocities (Similar to a setup used by Bill Bruford of King Crimson and Yes in the late 1980s).

You can in a different sort of way achieve multilayering but you need to use duplicate alpha samplers as shown then set the velocity levels to respond, the top sampler activates with a gentle keypress (or pad) @ 0-60 vel and the bottom one responds only with a faster key press above 60 vel. The same applies to instrument layers for orchestra, one of the great features of Mixcraft. Set the top sampler to 0-127 to sound simultainious with the bottom one when it reaches 60 vel, some experimenting required of course.
