Hi

A few more dumb questions here. I've got an AKAI Z4 and although I understand what the original note is, the note needed to play back the sample at the original pitch, I would like to know how to edit it. I see no reference to it in either aksys or the manual. I have some samples with note names as a suffix, does this mean that original key info is embedded in the wavs? If I drop a wav into the sampler, I presume if it's fresh it has no original key info, how does the akai deal with that? C3 as default? Does this mean then, that as a rule I should drop a sample onto c3 and then extend the keygroup up and down from that point? Lets say I want to record a bass guitar into the z4 and end up with 1 note per key, starting with the low E, do I have to edit the orig key info on the record page for every note, performing an offset calculation to ensure that the E in the keyboard plays the right E in the sampler? Seems like hard work, I tried to use the auto keygrouping thing, but I had so may false triggers as the note decayed, it was pointless. Does anyone here have a solution for the false triggering, it seems to just be a very crude noise gate type of system.

Regards, Nick.
