d. the above link has some info on waveknife, it will split the files automatically
The thing is, once they are split, since they are sustaining instrument samples you\'re probably going to want to build loops. Again this can be done in your sample editor to mark the loop points or build crossfades, or you can use an above tool.
enjoy the fun of sample editing
wait till you get into sound design aspects thats where the time really getslost in what I call \"fun\"
Thanks. I have lots of experience with sample editing and looping, having been one of the first purchasers of Sound Designer for the Akai S900 (in fact, that\'s the reason I\'m not a ProTools user today, I felt really abused by their failure to meet their upgrade promises-$700 for the editor, and then I was told they decided to abandon that version for the newer system, \"You\'ll need to buy a sound card for $2000, and the upgrade for $1500-oh yeah, your computer won\'t run this card, you\'ll need a new Mac, too!\"
I was acquainted with the CEO at the time, Peter Gotcher, so I call him. Told him, \"Peter Gotcher, you got me-but NEVER again!\"
And to this day, I won\'t buy Digidesign-and as far as I\'ve seen from the trades, ProTools continues their casual disregard of their user base. \'If you ain\'t Sony or A&M, we don\'t need to talk to you!\'
But I\'ve spent many hours looping and cross-fade looping samples (in fact, many were from this VERY set!)
But you\'re right again-designing gig sets with these will be a real learning experience-hope the wizard is feeling frisky!
Just checked the site real quick-looks like it has exactly what I need. Thanks again.
