Hm, somebody on here posted last week that you can't drag from Sanpper to Live directly. Did that change in the last week? I haven't tried. Hmm, you're right Snapper can't even spot drag directly into Live. It can. I have no problem here dragging a selection directly into Live. Make sure you've def...

AudioFinder will drag to a DAW as well as the Finder. But it can't instantly spot the selection to a DAW like Snapper does (only for Pro Tools that is). I see the benefit of dragging a selection directly to finder or to a DAW to create a new file, but I don't see how snapper's way of instantly spot...

Yes, you can either make a selection from the floating window (which has no editing capabilities) and drag it to Live or you can edit a file in AFs editor and then drag either the whole waveform or a portion of it into Live.

What's the lots more that AF does? http://www.icedaudio.com Alrighty, then a better question after reading all that, why get snapper? Just because it does a nice drop down view when you click on an audio file? Also with AF can you choose a portion of an audio file and drag that directly to live? Yo...

What's the lots more that AF does? The biggest thing is that it can scan your drives for audio and then you can save those lists so you can browse them without non-audio files getting in the way. All kinds of processing options as well. You can preview sounds with audio units applied. Hear a file a...

That's up to you. It IS a really cool feature that works really well when you just want to quickly find something in the Finder. But AF doesn't just do everything Snapper does, it does a lot more. That's why I don't think they're really comparable. Snapper just fills a niche that can be really helpf...

And yes AF does do the Finder searching thing that Snapper does, just not quite as elegantly, but it does do it. So you can have AF set up so that when you select an audio file in the finder, a little box pops up beneath it, allowing you to quickly create a new audio file from a section of the sele...

I like many others thought that these two apps were comparable but now that I have been demoing Snapper I have found that they really shouldn't be compared. Really the only thing that Snapper does that AF doesn't is to implement the Finder searching in a more elegant and transparent way. Other than ...

My biggest complaint about this partnership is the completely different approach to software copy protection that these two companies take. I own Pluggo, I'm not allowed to sell it, it uses PACE or iLock. Max/MSP is the same way. I was trying to buy a copy off of somebody recently, and Cycling 74 c...

Just drop the Metronome.wav and MetronomeUp.wav files into an Impulse and draw some quarter notes in. Simple.

It's called iFCB. Works like a charm and makes the tapdance routine obsolete.

Remember, rests are just as important (in some cases perhaps more important) as the actual sounding notes.

Don't neglect the rests!

You definitely want the app on the internal drive with the OS and the library on an external.

If you're doing live recording and looping and you want to get even more efficient add a second external and set that as the audio recording destination.
