Auto sampler with drum plugin?

Hi all, is it possible to use the auto sampler to create a program from a drum plugin such as Addictive Drums?

  • Hey Jonny,

    Thanks for posting!

    The Auto Sampler works best with plugins that are not sample based, like digital synths and effects. When you Auto Sample Addictive Drums, MPC will only grab one of the kit samples and transpose it over multiple octaves, creating a Keygroup.

    For your purposes, it will be much more beneficial to use the regular Sampler. After resampling your drum beat, enter Sample Edit mode. Click on the Chop tab and select Chop To Threshold. This will slice the sample into smaller intervals of each individual drum transient. You can quickly export a group of slices to the MPC pads, creating a new Drum Program!

    Hope this helps! Let me know if you have any questions.
