How can I get a sample to play to it's end after releasing midi trigger?

I can't get my music box samples to play to their end, they stop as soon as I release the note on the keyboard.  Can you help me?

    You can up the release on the sample if it's in a Simpler or similar sampler, but this might not work too well for long samples.

    You could also try finding a sampler that plays the samples until the end.

    Having the samples as clips on an audio track in Session Mode can work too, although you'll need one track for every sample you want playing at the same time. Remember to disable looping, and you might want to change the Clip Quantization (you can find that in the Launch options of the clip; the L button in the lower left in clip view).

    Thanks guys.  I'm trying to use Ableton's Sampler.  Really, there is no way to do this in Sampler?!  That seems amazing to me.  Seems like it would be common setting.

    I may have an answer for you. I was just working through this problem myself and decided to try out a "midi effect" in front of the Sampler in the chain to lengthen the note's release time. That causes the sample to play all the way through... right now I have it set at about 600ms which seems to play out all the different kick samples I'm triggering.

    So to sum it up. Try placing a Note Length patch which you can find under the Midi Effects folder in your device browser. I placed mine in front of the sampler and since I'm making drum pad selectors I placed it within the particular chain so that it wouldn't make each chain's note lengthen. Only that particular note. If this isn't clear let me know!

    Hope it helps!

    Cheers!
