Multisample KIT Generator. Now you can import your KONTAKT instruments or other sample libraries.

Hello

Here is the first version of my DELUGE KIT GENERATOR.
https://fyyyyy.github.io/deluge-kit-generator/index.html

First, you need a bunch of .wav samples, which need to follow the naming convention something_C#3_something.wav or B5_something.wav. Or they can also be named something_048.wav. So the note name or numeric note value needs to be in there somewhere in the sample name.

This video explains how to export your KONTAKT libraries as .wav files.

Then you can drag those wav files to your SDcard /SAMPLES folder.

With the editor you can assign a sample folder to OSC1, and a different sample folder to OSC2.
For OSC1 you may want low velocity samples (e.g. piano keys hit very softly).
For OSC2 you may want high velocity samples (e.g. piano keys hit very hard).

The generator will try to fill missing notes. E.g. if you have samples for D#4 and F4 but you are missing E4, then the generator will take the sample from D#4 and pitch it up 1 semitone, so you get a seamless kit.

Here is an example of a library i imported from KONTAKT. This is played live on the deluge with the imported samples and a velocity sensitive keyboard:

Another example of the Korg M1 sounds converted to deluge kits.

Cheers!

    A couple of things that could be improved in the deluge firmware to make them more useful:

    • Easier mapping of MIDI to kits. Currently we have to assign every single note which is tedious for 88 note kits.
    • It seems not possible to use Pitch Bend, Aftertouch or Mod wheel sources to modify the params. So we cannot e.g. bend a guitar sample 2 notes up, or use the mod wheel to gradually apply a vibrato effect to the sample.
    • The "affect entire" release seems to have no function. It would be great if it could be used to shorten the release of all samples. Then this could be used e.g. to simulate releasing the pedal of a piano.
    • Kits cannot transpose notes up or down, this is unfortunate
    • MIDI cc seems to be not assignable to the MIDI knobs as control params

    Now you can set the max note range that you want the samples to transpose.
    E.g. Korg M1 samples are starting at C2 but you can now set the range down to C0 and the generator will transpose the samples automatically.

    so its generating a kit for me just based on the samples ive thrown into it. its not recalling the samples once i load my deluge back in. what am i doing wrong? for example there is a wurly instrument here on the forums. it generates a kit for all the notes. but when i load the kit in deluge it doesnt playback.

    Yeah sorry its still not complete magic. I should make a video tutorial for this i guess :grin:

    You still need to copy the samples to your SDcard SAMPLES folder, otherwise the deluge won't find them.
    And you need to specify the correct folder in the input field in the kit generator.
