Multi-Velocity Drum Samples

Post by ktk9 » Thu Aug 16, 2018 4:27 am

OK, I'm back - I'm going to buy the upgrade to 8 this week.

My questions is regarding Mutli-Velocity drum samples. How do you do this in Mixcraft 8 Pro Studio?

If I can get this thing going, I'll be making a ton of samples - they will all be real drums, and not overly processed.
I have 2 Sonor sets, a set that I built, 5 snares a various depths and materials, and over 20 Paiste cymbals ranging in size from a 16" thin crash up to a pair of 21" Sound Formula crashes.

So, can this be done in Mixcraft?

I'm wondering the context of what you're doing? For instance most who are sampling sounds "multi sampled" using " multi velocity" as a library are doing that within the context of a midi controller which will play the sounds through a sample player at different velocities. These sample libraries are usually intended for sample players like KONTAKT or ENGINE because they have the capability to assign sounds to keys and midi channels.

The other main context is simply a beat machine that you drag samples into. Some of those also have velocity.Many don't.There seem to be two samplers in Mixcraft that fall into this category. The other two I mentioned would be separate purchases.
