Default DrumReaplacer Sample Source File creation

Much of the info has been gathered from this thread http://forum.cockos.com/showthread.php?t=20462 and trial and error.
I am slowly compiling the info to be made into a downloadable Manual and updated all in one install/test kit. For now I will attempt to keep this O.P. up to date whilst working on separate threads for USER MANUAL and INSTALL MANUAL - links found in my signature

DrumReaplacer does not yet output midi – for this try SStillwells drumtrigger (included in Reaper)

DrumReaplacer sample files are referred to as “ssf” – (sample source file)
They are a specially prepared multi-sample .wav file in stereo or mono.

The one thing to remember when making ssf’s is to have at least 50 ms of DIGITAL SILENCE (critical) between each sample, this is how DrumReaplacer knows where the samples begin and end.
The samples in the ssf can really be in any order
When the incoming audio contains a hit, DrumReaplacer compares the strength of that hit with the different samples in the ssf and chooses the best matching one.

Note
If ssf contains large dynamic/sound variation then the triggered sample can have too much volume and timbre variation for solid rock (etc) styles. Make separate files with just the more consistent hits. (new features implemented in latest version may avoid this)

Convert from .gog
Using Wavosaur, Import the .gog as a binary file, you'll have to do some guesswork on bitdepth, samplerate and no of channels but other than that it works great.

If unable to guess the file specs then it may require access to drumagog to manually bounce the Hits down to wav files for editing.

Editing can easily be done in Reaper. once the files have been laid out in order with 50 ms gaps then highlight and glue them all together. to rename the sample; select the new file and press F2, then press rename file


Sample Files – (from forum posts etc, may require editing)

unfortunately with the snare, only the gog came down properly
my attempts to convert it in wavosaur were almost successful but it is really noisy.
I managed to get 3 single wave samples and they sound pretty good, shame. there is also no way to contact them to let them know. if someone else has got it down clean then please let me know.

good for you... all needed

thought to mention that pipeline made and I think still offers something called DrummyQ that can be very handy to put on the track you are using for a trigger... see if you can get a look at it...
