The new warp engine....?

Post by Homebelly » Fri Jan 16, 2009 12:32 am

Can it still behave like the one in Live 7?
I like being able to stretch audio by shifting the warp markers around to get strange grainy textures.

but did they change the way it acts when you change warp markers? it seems like it'll be confusing to get the same results you used to get. or does it just take a moment to get used to?
It was as if someone shook up a 6 foot can of blood soda and suddenly popped the top.

It does take a moment to get used to, but the snapping to transients much more than makes up for it.

I take it that the difference is that the time marker moves smoothly through the warped section in the new mode. in the older warp mode the time marker moves slower and faster through warped sections. it's a change in visual frame of reference to the beat.

Exactly, and with the transient detection you get the ability to do more "normal" things, like quantizing audio... !

So does the transient detection mean the end of manual warping?

i may be wrong, but i found i needed to warp things again . . which in some of my sets is quite an undertaking.

it definitely takes getting used to, if you have spent years warping the old way and it's become as normal as breathing, you will find that it confuses your head a little bit but overall its a step in the right direction.

new users of Live will find warping much more intuitive.
