Hi all,
I'm having the most frustrating problem that I can't seem to work out. I'm using a QS8 with the latest version of soundbridge from the Alesis site. I'm trying to send a mellotron multisample to my Flash RAM card. I've tried tons of different things - including using AWAVE to define a multisample from .WAVs, saving it as a samplecell PC file, then using soundbridge, and also using Soundbridge's native instrument create tool (it looks like it supports multisamples...) Both of these didn't seem to create a good multisample. A small range of keys sounded good and the rest awful. The last thing I tried doing was converting the samples from an Akai disk with CDXTRACT into .sf2 format, then converting to samplecell, as suggested by Chris Papageorgiou in his tutorial. That resulted in garbled noise coming from my QS8.
Could someone PLEASE kindly help me and let me know the easiest (and most effective) way to send a multisample to my synth, either using .WAVs or the native Akai format? I'd really appreciate any help you can give.
