Karriem Riggins Drums - Making a custom preset / kit from scratch?

BrothelWaffles Member Posts: 2 Noise

Is there a way to create a blank preset that I'm missing? The only way to create your own kit with these seems to be just taking a preset and having to go through and change all the individual pads to what you want. The problem with this is that as I'm browsing the sounds and previewing them, there are no effects put on them, but when I change the sound on a pad, any effects that were on that pad in the first place are inherited and I end up having to go through and change all the different macro settings to their defaults just to get the pad to sound the way I expected it to when I picked the sound I wanted to assign. I hope that makes sense. Would be great if I could just load a blank preset with all the macros defaulted, or if pads just didn't retain their previous settings when loading a new sound. Even just having a checkbox when changing sounds to toggle whether it retains the previous settings or loads with zeroed out defaults would be nice.

    @BrothelWaffles Indeed, there is no blank or initial preset. I've asked for more information or insight to our Kontakt Instruments team, will get back to you as soon as I've got something to share.

    Thanks Jeremy, much appreciated. Not being able to add sounds to "clean" pads is really slowing down my workflow, and after working with it some more, I've found that there are some pads on some presets that just don't sound right even when I match the settings it had on one pad to another pad, i.e. the same sound with the same settings on pad 3 sounds different than the same sound with the same settings on pad 7. It's honestly been a bit frustrating at times.
