    Just loaded a kit called ” big fat nasty drums sound kit” and it’s my new
    secret weapon.

    I’m having a problem. When I drop the files into the zone, they don’t all
    align to the same key. Thus when I move the macro knob it doesn’t play
    because each kick is on a different key and not the same one… Can
    somebody help please?

    Very cool trick. Great way to sift through too many versions of drum hits
    to make quick decisions on the best one to use. Spending more time on
    picking WHICH 127 samples to drop in, as opposed to blindly picking 127
    “kick,” “snare,” “toms,” etc… is the way to go. This trick opened up a
    whole new level of possibilities nesting lots of samples within drum racks.
    Thanks a million. I want more tips just like this one…

    Really awesome tutorial!!!
    I just found one small improvement that you could make for some OCD
    viewers, with regards to some samples falling over multiple selection
    values(the closed hi hats were an example in your video):

    1) Before the right-click/distribute ranges equally step, drag the range in
    the selector menu to the value Number of samples – 1 (because the range
    starts at 0 and not 1).
    2) Continue on with rest of above tutorial.
    3) In the drum and instrument rack, map the sample selector macro from 0 to
    the value that was selected in step 1(similar to how the pitch range was
    mapped in the tutorial).

    Again really awesome tutorial which will seriously help out my workflow!!

    You sound identical to Richard Dreyfuss in Stand By Me. Identical.

    Off topic: I find his accent unbearable.

    Also, I pee on the side of the bowl to make less noise.

    This is one of the greatest tip but I have a problem:
    When I do Collect All and Save the project all the samples in the rack are
    I don’t want to save unused samples how can I save only the used samples?

    Need some help, I have been fooling around with this concept, but when
    finger drumming, things didn’t sound ‘right’. Banging around a bit I
    noticed that drums only played as long as held, like a piano note. This is
    fine if programming out drums, but when playing drums live, this has been a
    HUGE issue for me. Is there a setting somewhere to get the note to play
    through no matter how long it’s pressed?
