My old songs that im pulling up have a snare sound that doesnt sound the same. When I look at the sound to preview it, it sounds normal. When I put it through the program section then send it to a pad and hit it, the sample has a buzzing/high pitch ending. Its only for that sample!
Things ive tried:
Unplugging and plugging power cable
Checked velocity
Lowered master volume
Put at same velocity as other keys
Reuploading the sample
Chopping the end off (got worse)
Tried a couple of fx's
Different pads
This sample is perfect for my long and I dont want to lose it.
Any tips?
Thank You

check the bitdepth / sample rate of the sample. could it have gotten converted to something else? i have had low-bit samples that kind of 'fizzle out' at the end.

you could also post the sample here for better info.

Worst case scenario I would try thi0,s but this is the only sample that does that sounds. I switch samples between the pad everything else sounds good. I find the sample again and for the first couple of tries it sounds normal, but gets that buzz after a couple of hits on the pad.

Nothing has changed or been updated since this happened. The crazy thing is this is the only sample it happened to and even in the load folder, it sounds normal. I replace it and the sound works, but after a few thumps on the pad, it changes back to the sound with the buzz. How do I upload the sound with the buzz? I could attach the file but I would imagine it sounds normal because it sounds normal on the load screen for samples.

Change the pad, change the sample, if other pads and samples do this anywhere they are loaded then that is RAM going bad or needs to cleaned and reseated.

Only for that sample? Put the sample in a daw, resave as 44khz, 16bit/ no metadata, uncompressed pcm wav.

Load that into mpc and see what it does.
