Hello ladies & gentlemen! Ever wanted to use custom samples on your Roland Aira TR-8? Well, I sort of came up with a solution, all you need is your machine at hand, a usb cable, and Ableton Live. I myself have been looking all over the internet for something like this but couldn't find it anywhere so I decided to have a go myself...
It's basically a custom midi mapping for Ableton, I've set up a drum rack and mapped all the sliders and knobs accordingly, i.e compression and attack on the kick, etc...
Just make sure to drop your samples inside the simpler presets in the drum rack and NOT DIRECTLY TO A DRUM PAD, this will erase the mapping I've accomplished with my blood, sweat, and tears.
Even more fun will ensue if you've got an audio interface with multiple outputs handy, scatter your brains out with your custom samples using the built-in scatter effects, simply assign a pair of stereo-outs to your external inputs, then route all the internal drum sounds to one of the assignable outputs instead of the regular L/R outputs, then you just route the audio out through the Aira and back in, and voila, amygdala tickling sound effects that would put even the death star's lasers to shame!"
