USB Stick with samples not working.

Hi .. I tried just copying the files from you instruments page to my USB stick. No joy. Placed all the files in to a folder named samples. That didn't work ... Sorry but I'm a beginner ... I get the first keyboard sound but cant program + to another. My stick is formatted to ext4. Any ideas ... looks a useful project ... regards Pete

Hi Pete.

Check your file. You can find it at /root/SamplerBox/

In the area marked "LOCAL CONFIG - Adapt to your setup!", find the line:

SAMPLES_DIR, and make sure it says: SAMPLES_DIR = "/media/samples"

/media is the folder where your USB stick is mounted, so /media/samples will look for a folder named "samples" on your USB stick.

Also make sure that samples for each instrument is in its own subfolder. Folders must begin with a number.


1 Piano
2 Organ
15 Synthesizer
