    How can I smooth out the cymbals to where it doesn't sound the same all the time? I want the sound to sustain, but still have the number of hits the same....

    I'm running S2.0 on Garageband.

    What do you guys think?

    the bottom, there should be a layer section. soft gradient hard, then "voice limit". Soft is set stock at 1-20 velocity, 4 limit, so anything there will have 4 different samples in the pool. Gradient 21-126, same thing stock, and hard 127, same thing stock. Layer limit means you hit a cymbal 5 times. hit 1 will play until it no longer registers (the sample is over), OR on the 5th hit, if sample 1 is still playing, it fades it quickly.

    Make sure randomization is turned on on your right hand side.
