Is Christian reading these posts?
I decided not to post this as a reply buried in the Bently sample thread. Anybody else who is considering the Pianobook objectives from a less DAW-centric position, please contribute to discussion. Plus, I really want someone to help me with full length sound files of the Kate tracks!
If egalitarianism is a Pianobook objective, consider this plea:
I am groping through a way to do this in DAWs other than whichever one Christian is using or Protools.
And trying to parse through the jargon in the videos gets easier with my own experience having done the tasks while learning what they are called in my DAW. Rewind, play, repeat; checking his workflow against the tools I have available to me.
Something I did not understand several months ago was the timing involved that tells me how long each sample should be. Files from link above are all too long.
So, enter Kate, something I thought I could do without. And now I have no idea how to recreate the Kate tracks from the little sound snippets provided.
I really truly need full length sound files or maybe a midi file to guide me.
That is, if you really want a good product, you have to give me more generic tools to work with.
Please and thanks.
PS: before my purchase of a ‘real’ DAW, I was using Audacity. Free and open source. Imagine a guide for sampling a piano that a complete novice could use with ‘price to play’ significantly reduced.
