Instakit - generate MPC1000 kits from samples

Post by th0mas » Sun Feb 17, 2013 6:52 pm

I have a large collection of drum machine samples and didn't really want to manually build up MPC1000 kits with the waves, so I wrote a little python app called instakit. It will look at your WAVEs and attempt to intelligently assign the pad # and MIDI note # to normalize the samples onto the pads I expect each instrument to be.

Doesn't deal with the MIDI yet and probably doesn't match all possible wave names, but it pretty much works and is open source so have fun if you have the technical knowledge to do so.

Bluebox and Pad187 have both been able to do this since pretty much when the 1k came out.

I played with one of them in the past and had to manually assign the samples to the pads - do they do it automated now?

Anyways, adding SFZ support tonight so it works with sfortzando
