How to pitch a sample across your keyboard in Battery 4

Submitted by on Apr 23, 2013

I just received a question on how to pitch your samples so you can play them at different tunning across your keyboard or pad controller in Battery 4.

This is just a really quick video in response. It’s really simple to do.  Of course if you have any more questions just let me know.

    How do you know what key that sample is so it will be on the correct key on the keyboard

      this is just for midi triggering, not the actual key/tune of the sample, you can put it wherever you want. It will already be on a specific key by default when you drop it in, which will show in the keyrange box.

        I would prefer it on the correct note because i don’t play by ear. So how could i find out what note/tone that bass boom or whatever sample i use so it will be correct on the keyboard

        • saintjoe says:

          Well if you’re talking about tuning samples to the proper note then use a tuner software, guitar rig can do it for example.
