Use a q link sequence to give percussion sounds a more randomized feel. You can assign the q link knobs and sliders to amplitude and filter to start. Keep goin...or stop.

Not really a 4000 thing, but when you build drum kits, always put everything where you put it on the last one. Always put the kicks on the same pads, hats, snares ect. ect. That way when you make something, you can switch between drum programs seamlessly. Get a feeling of what sounds good with what.

Bringing this thread back from the dead!
Just started doing some basic Youtube videos for the 4k

Let me know if there is a video you'd like to see

Using an external HD:

How to save a song (this took me forever to figure out starting out.. so many lost beats :Sigh: )

How to sample and then chop them up!

Sorry if some videos similar to these have all been posted.
