Drums 16 tuning just like 16 level drum velocity

Post by djpioneer937 » Fri Apr 19, 2019 7:57 pm

the same way that we have 16 level drum velocity, can we have that same functionality for tuning/pitch of drums

Tutorial

i found out a workarround.

here is the tutorial (tested with bass note and tuner effect)

you need 16 level velocity possibility for that (push, push 2... or ni maschine routed correctly in ableton to use 16 level velocity)


Change Drumrack pad/Cell from simpler to Sampler. and activate 16 level velocity mode on youre controller for this pad.

then follow the steps below:

1. go to sampler Miditab: change Velocity destination A to "Pitch (M)" , amount: 33
2. go to sampler Pitch/OSC Tab: change Detune to: +12
3. go to sampler Filter/global-Tab: Vol-Vel: 0 % (otherwise: higher pitch =higher Velocity)

4. you can change sampler transpose how you need the pitch range



Now the 16 level velocity mode plays the drum rack chromaticly in stead of velocity. :D ;)

Cool workaround but just not as fast as mpc when it comes to doing this action, sometimes could come up with a a whole section of music from this feature - they should've implemented this long ago!

Yes thats true...we need that Feature.

Especially if you want to Play a drum rack cell chromaticly AND keep the same choke group with other cells ...in this case, convert the cell to a new track is senseless
