Toggle Keyboard/Group/Zone View ⌥V – Logic Pro keyboard command of the day

Switch views in the Sampler mapping pane. The mapping pane appears in all but the “Synth” view of the Sampler. 

Sampler Mapping and Zone pane overview – Apple Support

You can use the Mapping and Zone panes to create and edit sampler instruments. The two panes are designed for different tasks, but work together to provide full control of individual samples, or zones, and their use within one or more collections of zones, known as groups.

Remap To Root Notes – Logic Pro keyboard command of the day (KCotD)

  Remap To Root Notes

I was not born into an era where samplers are “free, fast, and easy”. I decided I didn’t need to spend the $2000+ for a very finicky computer that could only record 10 second clips. Silly me.

Today I would pull out a MacBook Air, attach an audio interface, and do the most amazing sampling, all for less than $2000, and with an interface that is indescribably different.

I’m still not going to jump into an MPCX Professional 😉

Someday when I sample.

Use the Sampler Mapping pane menu bar – Apple Support

Remap to Root Notes: Use to remap all selected zones to their respective root key positions.

I have yet to venture into using the Sampler to create samples. Sort of started out as a ROMpler person.

Use the Sampler Zone pane – Apple Support

Crop Loop: Crops (cuts) the portion(s) of the sample outside the loop start and end markers.

 

Next Sampler Instrument – Logic Pro keyboard command of the day

  Next Sampler Instrument

Switch to the next Sampler Instrument. The Sampler is opaque to me. Some day I may pursue learning about sampling, and probably compare using Sampler or Alchemy for working with samples.

Load and save instruments in Sampler – Apple Support

A sampler instrument is the file type that is loaded into Sampler with the plug-in Settings pop-up menu. When you choose a sampler instrument, the associated audio files are automatically located on the hard disk (or disks) and are loaded into your computer’s RAM.
