HOLD Parameter for Sampler (Great for kicks/snares)

Post by Spence_G » Sun Jan 10, 2021 2:19 am

Quick tip:

I was trying to copy the ADSR of a kick from battery, which has a hold parameter.
I figured out that the ATTACK Stage in sampler can be turned into a HOLD parameter.
This does not work in simpler.

1. Open filter/global tab in sampler
2. Set "Sustain" parameter to -inf, or anything you want lower than 0db.
3. Set "Initial" and "Peak" parameters to 0db

Your "Attack" parameter is now a "Hold" parameter. Set it to however long you want the hold time.

5 years in Ableton, and I finally notice this.
