This research provides an effective method on information entry of drum one-shot audio samples with a high frequency of use in music production. Drum one-shot audio samples have significant advantages of being used immediately in music production. However, users must endure the inconvenience of having to listen to every single sample sound source because the information entry method for them has not been developed. Therefore, this study focuses on the five most important types of information in the drum one-shot audio sample: duration, peak energy frequency, overtones, striking sounds and transient shapes. This paper revealed the effects of these factors on sound source and tone. Also, by presenting objective measurement criteria and methods for quantifying the samples, it was possible to make systematic information entry. This provided a more accessible way for users to efficiently manage and utilize the samples by entering the figures for each detected element in the media information of the sample music file properties. We hope this study will reduce the working hours of music production efficiently, and we hope that the producers who produce audio samples will also use it actively.
