I’m in the process of making some audio samples to load up into a BB drumkit. Although I have not done this before I am fairly confident that after a few attempts I’ll know what to do to get the sounds I’m looking for.
However, some things are on my mind that I would like to get some advice on.
I am going to set my audio recording guide to 16ths at 100bpm as a guide before I start splicing the samples. Just as a loose guide for measuring length.
- Are people splicing at the start of the audio sample or at the peak or inbetween?
May be its a silly question, but if I split at the very start, will that put the sample peak too far behind the beat?
To reverb or not to reverb? Definitely no reverb tail is what I’m guessing. I would like the samples to fit in with the Standard Pro kit.
Does anyone put a slight pre and post fade on each sample?
