Creating multi-sample EXS instruments

following on from this post...
audiotuts has a tutorial on creating a multi-sample instrument within Logic's EXS Sampler. The tutorial focusses on using glass bottles as the sound source, but obviously the same principles apply regardless of the source.
It's quite a brief article but it does cover some tips on how to edit your samples in preparation for loading into the sampler.
In order to take advantage of the "automap" function within the EXS you need to name your samples with their pitch at the end of the file name, eg. sample C3.wav
The automap function will read your file names for a pitch value and automatically map your samples to the correct pitch, saving you loads of time and effort.
