When I use CR-78 samples or similar, I visit a Wiki or another source,
e.g. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roland_CR-78 , then I use such an
example loop and copy the same rhythm by a MIDI file to play the samples
unison with the audio example loop. I tune the samples, correct loudness
and panning until it fits to the original drum machine. This is the
basic I need, most of the times the samples provided by soundfonts are
completely detuned. Anyway, once the samples are consistent, e.g. the
tuning of the kick fits to the snare, I detune the drums to fit to my
composition, I edit attack times etc., but I don't remember that I ever
have done this using Linux software ;). IMO a good basic for synth
sounds are _real_ Roland synth drum samples, TR series etc., but it's
important that the sounds are original, not detuned, not wrong loudness
relations, the samples need to be consistent, work with each other.
Sure, I will detune and edit attack and decay times etc. to fit to my
songs, but IMO the problem often is that there isn't a good basic to do
that. Most soundfonts that claim to provide CR, TR etc. are a PITA and
need much correction, before you can start to edit them to fit to your
needs.
