Nice sound!

Nice sound!

is the swishy buildup sound right at the beginning a sample or some kind of effect you worked up with the effects in the app?

Thank you very much :)

Thank you very much :)
It's a beautiful sample :)
I have tried making sweeps on PCM SYNTH , and its possible, but I just put in sampled sweeps into the BEATBOX because it allows me to use one of the tracks for something more important..like an extra synth melody etc.. :)

If you're crafty and willing

If you're crafty and willing to give up note pitching, you can use a PCMSynth as a 64 track sampler.

By loading a sample and mapping it with RootKey = LowKey = HighKey = C0 (let's say), you've now got that sample loaded and it will play when you sequence a note to play on C0. You repeat this process for as many notes as you need, changing the note to which you map. If you need to pitch a sample for a few octaves, you can set the range to something bigger than one key, leaving a few less notes free for one-shot samples on either side.

Hope this makes sense. I'll probably just simplify things and make a MPC-style 4x3 pad sampler machine that will just be a UI shell on top of the PCMSynth doing exactly this, but with a more familiar interface.

Oh, and nice track Mr Nichols :-)

Sort-of, the tutorial shows

Sort-of, the tutorial shows how to map a multi-sample instrument, but it assumes each sample will span the range of a few keys or an octave.

The "sampler" configuration uses each sample mapped to only one key. That way you can fit LOTS of samples, but you can't play them as pitched instruments anymore. I didn't show that in the video because it's not the main use of the PCMSynth. However, if you've got lots of random samples, this method frees up your rack.

Zvon did this in his Mini MC1 contained in the Free Pack 01 to map 47 samples to one PCMSynth.
