STAX Synth & Strings

This kit uses the same bass and drums as the STAX EPiano & Strings kit. The Oberheim OXa synth replaces the piano, and is pitched from C2 through B4. The strings are extended down to C3, and now range from C3 through G5. See the included kit map for details.

Hi Phil, first of all, thanks so much for all your contributions to the forum. I am new to BB and would like to know if you have a dropbox location where I can download all your kits.
Also, I am very curious to learn how those kits are created? for example, I have a midi file with heavy horns, trumpets and brasses. I know it will not sound great in BB but wonder how I could create a kit with all these instruments and how to determine the volume for each of them before merging them in one channel.
Thanks much in advance

My kits are available for download in the Resources section of the Forum. I do not have another publicly available location for download.

The attached document should give you some insight on how to edit or create a kit. To create a kit from scratch, within BB Manager, Select Drumsets>New Drumset, although, it is many times much easier to edit an existing kit. LBDM 4BB in the attached document refers to a commercial package I made to replicated the Alesis SR-16 on the BB. If you’re interested, it’s $39.99 for Forum members. You can find out more here:

To make your own drumkits, you would need to create or obtain wav samples of the instruments you are placing in the kit. For BB, wav samples should be 44.1 khz, 16 or 24 bit samples, with no meta data attached to them. I have a couple packages of samples on the Forum in the Drumkits section until the search “Roll Your Own.” Roll You Own kits

Volume issues are discussed in the document. As long as the sample is not clipping, you can adjust the volume lower within the kit if it is too loud.

Thanks a lot Phill!!!
