I’m confused

Loading additional drum samples into Sample Pad Pro

SamplePad Pro How do I load additional drumkits on my sd card so they will show when I put my card in? Do they have to be in a folder? What do I name the folder? Do have to put 8 ,wav files in it? Help? There are no directions for this in the users guide.

  • Hi,

    Thank you for your forum post!

    The samples files must be 16-bit, mono or stereo .WAV files with a sample rate of 48K, 44.1K, 32K, 22.05K, or 11.025K.

    The .WAV file must be located in the root (main) directory of the card and not in any folders. We recommend formatting your SD card to a FAT32 file system (if it is not already) and naming your sample files according to this format. Basically, this means:

    Do not use these characters: " * / \ : < > ? |
    Do not use spaces.
    Limit your file name to 8 characters (excluding the file extension, ".WAV").

    You can assign up to 48 MB worth of samples per kit (the sample library on your SD card can be larger, of course). Also, please note that a sample's size will be rounded up when loaded (e.g., a 2.1 MB sample on the SD card will be treated as a 3 MB sample when it is assigned to a pad). The max number of files that can be located in the root directory is 512.

    I hope this information helps!

  • C'mon Alesis, when will the SampleRack & Pad Pro User guides be updated to explain how to make drum kits using samples on a SD card?

    Check out instructions in this video from about 9 minutes:

    Btw, this ain't the first time I've responded to a similar query:
