How to Use controllers to cycle samples

The Sensory Percussion sampler allows you to cycle through samples based on how you play the drums. To use Sensory Percussion’s controllers to cycle through samples, first click on a pad with a sampler that has a sample-stack. In the sampler, above the sample-stack, check the box labeled control. Now create a controller and drag and drop it onto the number box next to the the control checkbox. That assignment now controls the the order in which the sample-stack cycles.

It’s good to remember that - because the samples are cycling, and the stack isn’t sounding all at once - you can normalize all of the samples in the stack or mix them all to the same level without worrying about clipping.
