You should first go to PROGRAM EDIT. Then go to KGRP
and then to SPAN
. The goal is to get to the page where you have the key ranges in front of you. Now select the cursor and do one "click" till you come to the first sample in the list and its low note. As of that moment you are setting ranges using a midi keyboard and cursor will automatically advance from key range to key range.
If you're building a drum set, what you do is basically strike each key on the keyboard twice and you do it fast. Hence the speed(!). You hit it twice because: first for the low range, second for the high range. After that cursor automatically advances to the next sample. And so on.
I've learned that trick on S3000XL since it is mentioned in its manual (but maybe not in S1100 manual?).
Optional1: go to SMP1
and set ED: ALL
. Now move cursor down and set pitch
. As of now, no need to tune samples and mess with the EDIT SAMPLE menus. All the samples will now play at their original sample rates.
Optional2: Go to SMP2
(make sure ED is still set to ALL) move cursor to playback
and select TO END
. This will ensure each drum will play properly to the end.
There. Your 62 key drum set is finished in about 30 seconds. How'bout that!
