I'm currently working at a film scoring house and they pretty much build all of they're sample libraries from scratch. I just finished with a set of Timp "hits" but am now working on Timp "Rolls". Hopefully I can clearly explain...

This is my current process: 1. "Chop" the Roll audio so there's no excess noise before or after roll begins/ends. 2. Copy Roll audio. 3. Chop the copied roll audio as close as I can to the last "strike" (or release) of the roll, this is what is supposed to be used as the release trigger. Once the rolls and release (trigger) samples have been cut, they're all dumped into a Keymap for programming.

This method does work (as it's how they've done it in the past) but it's fairly tedious and seems inaccurate as it's difficult to isolate the actual release of a roll, sometimes resulting in a sloppy release when the instument is done. Basically I'm hoping to improve the speed of the process and the quality of the result.

Any thoughts or advice? Thanks!
