Where did you get the samples? How did you convert them?
Use a program called CONVERT - I think it stands at v1.4. It converts LOTS of sample formats.
: Also, I have 1MB of bass samples that I extracted from my bass module. The loop points used by the module work fine in Melosoftron but I get clicking when they are loaded into the QS. Anyone want a crack at looping a couple of these samples? I've tried, and without trying to stamp authority on this statement, I think Soundbridge has a couple of bugs wit looping. My loops sometimes work perfectly and sometimes have clicks. Even if I use the same sample in more than one project, it can work perfectly in one and crackle in another!!!!!????
: And last, I thought of buying an audio CD of drums (like those from Big Fish) and ripping the audio into wave files. I could easliy load these samples via SoundBridge. Does this sound feasable?
Yep, that's exactly how you would do it. Drum samples are the best for Soundbridge and the QS because you generally don't need looping. I think Alesis is getting a LOT of bad publicity about Soundbridge - They should supply a new improved version, or at least get some other vendor to supply one. I'll gladly pay a couple of $$$ if it works properly - being able to graphically set the loop-points in Soundbridge would be good! :-)
