question about creating a patch for a sampler

Recommended Posts

I hope I explain this so it makes sense....

 

I want to record full chords (from lounge lizard vst for example) and create a patch/sample to be loaded into a sampler. The point being I can assign a full chord to a single key on my midi keyboard. Call it a cheat if you will. My trouble is how do I make it so the sound sustains as long as I have the midi key pressed, not just the duration of the original sample. Is this some sort of advanced sound creation beyond my grasp, or is this a simple task I can conquer?

 

Thanks for the input

You need to loop the sample in the Sample Editor.

 

1. Open EXS24 and choose Edit.

2. Choose Instrument -> New.

3. Drag your sample to the keyboard and release the mouse above the key you want to place your sample.

4. A Zone gets inserted to the editor. Open it.

5. Remove the One Shot tick and tick the Loop box.

6. Now you get the loop parameters to show up. If you click the little E box you can edit the loop points in Sample Editor.

7. Remember to save your work!

very cool... thank you!

 

and I am assuming if I edit correctly it won't sound like it's looping?

Correct. It won't be easy if the sample is a complicated chord with lot's of mixed waveforms. Make sure you have marked the Search Zero Crossings option from the Sample Editor.
