Drumsite help

Hit modes.

There are currently three hit modes to be used in Drumsite:

  • heavy hit
  • medium hit
  • light hit

Hit modes are selected using the toolbuttons shown in the red circle in the image below.

You can use hit modes or you can forget them, depending on what types of rhythm you want to create.
Hit modes can be very useful in case you want to play with dynamics of the instrument. Every sample has assigned its hit mode and this is evaluated when adding hits - only the samples with the corresponding hit mode set are used.
Hit modes for sample are set in the drumset editor. For example four snare samples are used for heavy hits...

...while the other four are used for medium or light hits.

Thus when we select medium hit mode, only a corresponding group of samples is used for random picking of the individual sample. (see image)
