Recommendations 2 quickly play sound clips in a vst sampler?

Hi was wondering is there a way To perhaps quickly drag sound clips within cubase via halion, groove agent 1, or a third party vst so that i can trigger them via MIDI in original key but also in different pitches and faster or slower like a traditional hardware sampler?
I know silly question but know i am manually editing the sounds to acheive this…im sure there is a simple and fast solution…Nano sampler?
