Sampler question

Post by tomf » Fri Feb 01, 2019 5:21 pm


I have loads of one shot samples, but when i drag them in abletons sampler, each sample will span like 4 notes. I click distribute ranges equally, and thats what happens.

How can i get it so that i just drop my samples in and each sample gets assigned to a note?

What are the file names?

Sampler tries to map samples based on note names found in the file name. For instance Piano_C3, Piano_F2, etc. If the note names are not adjacent, the samples will be stretched across multiple keys.
