I suppose this may be common knowledge among you more experienced music makers, so after not being too succesfull with Google, I’ll try here.
I just bought a couple of sample libraries with huge amount of WAV-files. There are loads of instruments with multiple WAV-files for different notes like for C and F in 8 octaves = 16 samples.
Ok, setting up this kind of instrument from WAVs to Renoise means loading 16 individual samples and mapping them to keys and that simply sounds like a pain to me.
If I understand correctly, it is possible to have a single XI-file that includes several samples mapped to different notes? Or is it? Could I have a single XI-file that would contain the 16 samples mentioned above so that I could just load it to Renoise and get all the 16 samples included?
Ok, how can I construct an XI-file that includes the WAV-files mapped to desired notes?
I did find a couple of WAV to XI converters from Maz’s site, but they seem to just convert single WAV-files into single XI-files and that’s not what I’m looking for.
So, any ideas? Or could I construct a RNI-file inside Renoise just once and then save it as an instrument to be used later…? Hmm… Have to see about that one…
