Viewing topic "What Is The Best Way To Sample An Electric Piano Sound?"

I’m not keen on any of the EPs on the Motifs so I was wondering if anyone had any advice on sampling an electric piano sound from another keyboard.

At the moment, to sample something, I usually record it into my Mac via my sound card, then chop up the wavs in Twisted Wave (superb audio editor for Mac) and then import them into Native Instruments Kontakt. Then I use Chicken Systems Motif Translator to convert the patch to motif format and load the it into my XF / XS.

The problem is that I don’t loop any samples, which is fine for me when dealing with bells, FXs, and instruments that wouldn’t normally be looped (i.e. Woodwind).
But If I don’t loop, and given the velocity layers, this sample will end up huge!
So, if I wanted to sample the piano sound attached, (clip taken from youtube) which is from a Technics KN6000, does anyone know how I should do it?
The EP sound here has maybe four velocity layers.

Advice on looping is very welcome.

Thanks a lot!

(please listen to mp3 attached).
