Device Overview

Name/Version: Drumfoldr 1.0
Author: ldmdevices  
Description: Drumfoldr was designed to overcome the limitation of the Ableton Sampler to have only 128 samples within the chain selector, and to enable automatic updating of the contents of a folder.

Put the device into a cell of a Drumrack, select your drum folder, and now you can select any hit from within that folder*.

Finding the ‘right kick’ can now be done much more easily, without any need to pre-fill a Sampler with specific files. Change the contents of your folder any time and the device will reflect those changes and still save the right sample into your Live Set.

Included within the device are the basic functions you would find within Simpler – ADSR, Transpose, Detune, Filter – LP, HP, BP, BS, Panning and Gain.

Of course, MIDI is limited to 128, so if you map the dial to a controller you wont be able to choose through every single sample, but you can also use the Up & Down controls and the menu for more detailed control.

*limited arbitrarily to 5000 files in the folder

super nice and useful approach!! bought it :)

This doesn't work for me - the interface is missing a lot of elements compared to the picture here (mainly buttons and dials), and dropping a folder onto the device doesn't do anything. I'm running the latest version of Max and Ableton. Last time I noticed similar problems with a device it turned out the uploader hadn't frozen the device before uploading.

I'd love to try this device out, it sounds really useful! Could you maybe check the freezing thing and re-upload it please?

thanks for the heads up Martin! Yeah my stupid arse forgot to freeze. You should have received an email with the updated file. Sorry!

Looks like that's fixed it! Thank you - I'll be testing it properly soon :-)

Great device! Works so well with the endless encoders on push.

The only issue so far is transpose doing nothing to the sounds.

I will check for other things as well but,... bravo!


That's very strange, the transpose works fine here

ok so there is still a little issue. The menu won't always display the correct filename when you reload a saved set, but the correct sample should still be saved. I'm trying to fix that at the moment

Is there any chance this could be made to work with sub folders? As it is it only shows the contents of the top folder.

it's a good question, and I don't think so. I can't say for sure but I will try to find out a way if it is possible

My max 7 was installed but not pointing to folder inside of live. Transport works fine. Any chance warping could be added to this? Great as is but just wondering ya know.

This doesn't work for me (((

What's the problem egorsvoy? I can't imagine it just wouldn't work for someone

Bravo nice device and thank you!
