launchpad Problem

Hello together,

I got a little questuion. I bought the novation launchkey 61 and there's a launchpad on it with 16 buttons. Know, when I assign some samples on the buttons and then touch them, it sounds horrible when I do some fast switches. The reason is that button 1 wont turn off after pressing button 2 ! It is a kind of release that every button has automatically.
So, now I ask you guys: How can I reach it to turn off a button after pressing another one, so that I wont hear the sound of the first button in the sound of the second one?

Thank to you and sorry for my horrible language in this text.

regards Nicola G.

You could try turning down the polyphony on your sampler from its current value (normally around 16 by default) down to 1. That way it should only be able to play one sample at any one time and will cut off the previous sample when you trigger a new one.
