Yeah I’m understanding that now because sounds are handled at the track level, not the sample level. What is frustrating is that pitch is tied to the keyboard and they are assuming that everything is sampled at C5 (which it’s not). If you loaded in a few different samples at varying pitches (C2, G4, D6) - everything is assumed to be C-5 because that’s where the sample engine sticks the samples. If you try to adjust the samples to fit in the proper location they were sampled in by modifying Pitch, you have to do it in the opposite direction (eg C2 to fit at C2 would need to be pitched up +24) - at this point playing C2 on M:S would trigger the note at it’s intended pitch at the correct note.
If you’re playing chromatically using an external MIDI keyboard to trigger the internal samples, again, everything is played from C4-C6. But the problem lies in that if you use Pitch to adjust the sample to fit in the proper spot on the keyboard, you’re cutting off your range that it can be played. (Pitch a sample up +24, the highest you could play on the keyboard would be C5)
This makes the task of doing something like using sample locks to trigger a multi sampled instrument difficult. Yeah I get that the product isn’t designed to be doing that in the first place but still.
I think I was under the impression the device could do much more than it’s capable of doing. The more I use it the more shortcomings I’m finding (outside of the already mentioned requests).
