Creating a Sampled Instrument: Auto Map Samples

Creating a Sampled Instrument

We’ve recorded an alto saxophone on each chromatic pitch from F2 to D4. On the saxophone this would be from D below the staff to B above the staff . Each pitch was exported as an individual WAV file and placed into a folder.

Auto Map the Samples

These samples can then be imported into a sampler and played back on a midi controller. Software samplers like Logic’s ESX24 and Ableton’s Sampler have features that auto map samples to their root key. This can save a ton of time when assigning  samples to their corresponding midi note and key range.
