    Ultrabeat Question
    Hello again forum... Question: Is there a way to quickly take a select voice in a UB kit (like a hi hat or crash) and spread it all across the keyboard ascending in pitch (like the preset bass and other "melodic" sounds already programmed in the upper ranges of the keys in UB), or do I have to copy & paste to each key and alter each pitch myself?

    Hi Soundwriter, by the sounds of it you'd be better off using the EXS24. Find the sample you want to spread across the keyboard and build a new EXS instrument from it. Assign the sample to a single zone that will span the desired keyboard range and SAVE the instrument. Then you can select the instrument and off you go. There may be another way but that's what I'd do.

    I don't know of a quicker way and the EXS24 does seem more suitable for your needs. Just wanted to share a 'not as long as it could be' way of importing the same sound to each voice in Ultrabeat. 1. Keep a Finder window open with the audio file you want to assign to all voices. 2. Enable Voice auto select. 3. Starting from C1 and going up the keyboard press the keys and drag the file into eahc voice's sample waveform window. It's a bit workman like - but beats clicking and importing or clicking on each voice and then dragging the file from the finder window.... Cheers Rounik

    Thanks for the responses... so far I've only used the EXS 24 for its samples. I do have the tutorial but haven't gotten into it yet but plan to in the near future. For now I'll try the 'not so long as it could be' method suggested by Rounik. Thanks again to both Rounik and YADJ.
