How many Samples on Nord Wave?

Postby Quai34 » 04 Aug 2017, 10:36

On the Nord Piano 3, it's 250 Mega for 150 samples. Nord Wave is 180 Mega, so I could a be able to land around 100 samples?

Howard? :mrgreen:

There is no direct correlation between the max number of samples and the memory size, unless you just make an average (e.g assuming each sample is 1.5 Mbytes) or a proportion as you did; (to be precise the result is 108=150/250*180) but who said that in 250 MB you can store 150 samples? Well, in theory you may even store 3 very long samples taking all the memory...

On the Nord wave, the limit is 100 samples. Any update has changed this limitation...

Hi,
Yes, sorry, typing mistake, thanks for the reply.
Yes, I had done it this way with the calculation but said 100 to simplify. Anyway, it's not bad, I might have an opportunity to buy a Wave at 1100 CAN$ which is 750 USD, so...
For the 250MB=150 samples, I just looked at the list of the samples for the Nord Piano 3 on Nord Website, it was 150...

No problem! Anyway as alcools reports there seem to be a software limit of 100 samples on the NW (I wasn't aware of)

I'm good with 100 samples or seems that I could live with as I also have my Stage 2....

But its 100 sample instruments right?
But you can make one sample instrument with several imported samples spread over the keyboard?
