How would I be able to take a sound, and be able to make it play with the piano roll? Not like exs, but being able to trigger if it is playing or not. Example:
Hmm, you can try loading the sound in Ultrabeat. Then by controlling the sample start by velocity, you can determine where the file starts by how hard to hit the key.
For example, load up ultrabeat. Go to one of the keys and turn off all the oscillators except for the bottom one. Make sure you click Sample - not phase osc or model. From there you can load up the sample that you're trying to choose. Once you load that up, the wave of the sample will show up in a little display. There are lines on the display that you can drag. Drag one to the left and one to the right. These are your start and end points based on velocity (1 is max veloctity, the other is min velocity). Now, make sure your via (to the right of the sample display) is set to velocity. From here you just have to pick the velocity. One more thing is to make sure that "gate" button is turned on, otherwise your sample will play out.
This way you can determine when a file plays by placing midi notes on the piano roll.
If you want to get fancy, you can create cool effects by varying the velocity.
I hope that's not as confusing as it sounds - If you have questions, I can answer them better when I'm home at my computer and not at work.
