: I've been asking this very question on the newsgroups and once here in this forum (see Serious use of Soundbridge) and had no response. I don't believe that there are not too many folks using Soundbridge in a serious way.
You can load any WAV or RAW sample into a flashcard on the AS synths and use it in patches.
: I have 1MB of bass samples that I've tried to use with SoundBridge but the loop points sound wrong (lots of clicking when the loop kicks in). The same loop points sound fine in a software synth I have.
I have the same problem, but a little worse. I have on occasion set up the loop-points perfectly in Soundbridge and they sound great on my QS7. But there are times where for some reason these same samples download with the same loop-points and they click!!! VERRRRY annoying!!!
: Bottom line is that I bought an 8MB flash card and I feel I wasted my money. SoundBridge was one of the top features that influenced my decision to buy Alesis. I should have checked it out a bit better.
Luckily I got my 2MB flashcard from Alesis for free, otherwise I would have been even more disappointed than I already am about loading user-samples. I think Soundbridge on the whole is very buggy. Perhaps someone out there could get the specs and write new software.
