Creating multisamples with onboard samples

Creating multisamples with onboard samples
« on: January 16, 2019, 07:42:21 AM »
It would be a cool idea to be able to somehow have the mapping software be able to take existing onboard PX samples and be able to create a multisample with them. For example to be able to take the Blackbird drum kit on the lowest octave, a slap bass sample on the next octave, an arco string sample on the next octave and a VS Wave on the next octave.
Prophet 6, Prophet X, Moog Sub 37, Tempest Drum Computer, Roland V Piano, Fender American Stratocaster, Roger Linn Adrenalinn iii, Origin Effects Cali76 and SlideRig compressor, ASUS Zenbook Pro Computer, Soundcraft MTK 22 Mixer, Mark Of The Unicorn Digital Performer 10 Software.

I'd pretty much surmise we will never be able to offload the stock samples.

Agree with ReWire's assumption, but this is a fabulous and forward-thinking idea.

I can imagine a scheme where the factory samples never escape the Prophet X, but you install a sample pack that says, in essence, duplicate a specific previously existing sample during installation (I’m assuming it would be literally duplicated to allow fast loading by packing all of the samples needed in one nice contiguous package during installation.)

Aside from the question of whether this would ever wind up being a priority, which only Sequential can answer, there are a couple of obvious challenges here.  One is that we don’t actually know what samples are in the factory set so you’d probably have to refer to a key range and just get all the velocity and round-robin samples mapped in that range.  Another is that we wouldn’t have any way of knowing how large the resulting sound set would be so it would be hard to tell if you were under the 1.5GB limit.

There’s a lot to be done to deliver on the initial expectations, so I fully expect to see Sequential and 8Dio focus first and foremost on delivering a mapping utility that supports velocity switched and round-robin selection among user samples before much of anything else.
