So have you (or anyone else) got a general handle on the way Apple has 
organized their samples?  It seems to me like file names ending in 01 
seem to be the highest velocity, while file names ending in 04 seem to 
be the lowest (actually, I sometimes have difficulty being sure, though 
that may be the limitations of my iBook's built-in speakers, since I 
haven't had a chance to plug anything in to listen more closely.

I think Apple's sample are missing a lot of sounds I'd like in a Latin 
kit, for example (3 congas, I think, but just regular hits I think, no 
mutes or slaps or suchlike).  Still, I thought I might try playing with 
this to see how I got on with it ....

Does anyone know of any nice online resource that has mapped out all 
Apple's GarageBand samples, the which and the what?
