Is there a way of creating SamplePad Pro kits on the PC?

Is there a way of creating SamplePad Pro kits on the PC, and saving them to the sd card, to make it easier and quicker to set them up. The unit is great, but kit editing is a bit painful on the little keypad.

  • Hello Simon,

    Thanks for the post. I'd like to help! This is how you load supported wav files or kits to your SD card by using a computer:

    1. Insert your SD Card into the SamplePad Pro.
    2. Connect your SamplePad Pro to your computer.
    3. Turn on the SamplePad Pro.
    4. After the SamplePad Pro is done booting up, hold down the LEFT and UP OPTIONS arrows to enter the Options Mode.



    5. Select LOAD SAMPLES/KITS VIA USB by pressing the RIGHT arrow. Your computer will now attempt to connect to your SamplePad Pro. Note: This may take a few minutes depending if you're using a PC or Mac.
    6. When ready, for PC users, open your Windows Explorer Window and navigate to your SD card. For Mac users, open your Applications Window and navigate to your SD card.
    7. Open this location and you can now add your supported .WAV files and kits to the SD card. If you downloaded third party sounds, move or copy those files into this SD Card location.
    8. When finished, Right Click your SD Card in the window and select EJECT. This will safely eject your SD card from your computer.
    9. You may now exit from the SamplePad Pro by holding the LEFT and UP OPTIONS arrows.
    10. That's it!

  • Maybe Alesis gave up on a proposed "kit management software utility" for the SamplePad Pro as the similar SampleRack would require extra trigger zone settings.

    This video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GueOJ...) suggests being able to drag & drop samples into kits on a PC.

  • Hi everyone! I know this topic is a few years old, but I've developed an application that allows you to edit SamplePad kits using your Mac/PC. I have an early release that is working well for my SampleRack, and I expect it should work fine for other SamplePros.

    I expect to be working out the kinks through the next couple weeks, and would greatly appreciate if you could help me find any bugs with specific firmware versions or anything.

    You can download the executables here: https://github.com/LesserChance/sampl...
    And view the code here: https://github.com/LesserChance/sampl...

    Contact me through GitHub if you want to try it out and need some help.

    Thanks!
