Creating Drum/Percussion Programs

Post by anthony1974 »

Hi all,

Can anyone suggest the quickest way to select drum and loop samples from sample CD's and get then into Halion, one sample per key? I've been using zones with one sample per zone but this takes forever, surely there is a quicker way?

There are many different ways to import samples into HALIon. In your case I would suggest to make a multi-selection of the samples on your Sample CD you want to consolidate in one HALion preset and drag and drop the bunch of samples onto the HALion 6 Keyboard at the bottom.
The mousepointer position and the corresponding yellow frame(s) will indicate how the samples will be mapped along the keyboard.
