How's it going folks.
I wanted to start a thread on my take on how I create kits in LSDJ and allow a thread for those who also make kits to provide their input, tips and tricks.
There is a youtube video with 2xAA showing the process on making kits and little-scale has a blog post on how he makes kits.
Software - Audacity (free program)
1. Load sample.
2. Set to 11,468 Project Rate (Hz). [input by AWESOMECAT]
3. Set audio track to mono.
4. Cut silence before and after sample. (Keep in mind that the sample is limited to 2 seconds in length)
5. Apply Compressor Filter.
(5a) I like to add an Amplify Filter that clips a little to increase the volume. Completely optional.
6. Apply Lowpass Filter with cut off frequency at 5,734 Hz. [input by AWESOMECAT]
7. Export as "Other Uncompressed Files" -> Options -> WAV (Microsoft) + Unsigned 8 bit PCM
My mix of kits both personally made and hand picked are available via my Dropbox!
