To maintain compatibility between the RYTM and Octatrack all of the SampleChains will be 24 Slices. This makes it easy to share between these two samplers. If you need to figure out your Slice Points for the RYTM use the wonderful RYTM Slice Calculator:
For Octatrack users you’ll want to use a 24 Sample Slice Grid within your Sample Editor. Also See:
The samples are in Mono to conserve on project sample space, as well as providing better stereo panning control for your kit once you have it loaded in your sampler. Use the built in Effects to get a sweet stereo sound.
The individual slices have been normalized at -3 dB to give you some head room with overdrive, filtering, and effects.
