hi there,

just trying to create a trap 808 kick, i have a sample that comes within the kit-core 808 drum rack within 9 suite, and cant seem to find an option for fine tuning so that it can be tuned to a note. there is a "pitch" option which lets me change notes semi tone at a time. do i just assume that the original sample is tuned to C given that it can only be triggered when i hit C. or am i missing a fine tuning option so that it can be tuned appropriately.

thanks!

hi

you dont tune drums to a musical scale
they are tuned to each other as the drummer wants them to sound
when you play a "c" on your key board its just triggering the sample you have assigned to "c"
you can change that note to any note you please

The fine tuning parameter should be within Simpler, if I remember around the lower right of the device. I'm not at my computer at the moment.
