Autosampling preview?

Without a doubt, the autosampling feature is amazing, but there's a big flaw, as I see it... the inability to preview a sample, in terms of looping. When autosampling pads, one has to guess where to put the loop, and the length, and often it can take several tries, which can be rather time consuming, depending on the size and scope. I know it can be a bit more problematic when getting into multi-layered samples, but something that perhaps pre-renders a few samples for preview would be awesome and save a lot of time and guesswork.

  • Not exactly a fix but I tend to make a really small autosample (one note, 4 layers) to check my settings. This is fairly quick and can avoid wasting a lot of time on a big multi sample. If the sound changes with register then you'll have to edit the loop points by hand anyway.

  • Hey Jd,

    Thanks for posting!

    I think a preview option could be really cool if you are designing new sounds or trying to very faithfully reproduce a virtual instrument. Like Daniel mentioned, if I'm designing a new keygroup, I've taken small renders to test out how the samples will be played. I think that is currently the best way of 'auditioning' Auto Sample but if you find a different way let us know!

    Be sure to submit Auto Sampler preview as a feature request with the MPC 2 Software's built-in feedback module. The feedback module is represented by a smiley icon at the lower right side of the software next to the browser icons. This information goes directly to the Akai team for consideration!
