But it is the scrub tool that we use to audition slices in recycle. Recycle is the first transient editor and uses "scrub" to do this, but ableton wont for their transient system? why? I wouldnt call it a useful feature, but absolutely essential.
You have made something clear to me about what i see in clip view-a representaion of a slice. But if you can mark it, surely you can set playback from the marker with some coding or whatever magic they know(lol).
how hard is it to just slice the loop to a rack and audition the slices right away?
Not hard. And this is exactly the problem! you see the midi file it creates? If i go to edit the slices on the sampler and move start and end points to get nice slices, that midifile becomes "irrelevant" because the original performance information is lost.
Need to hear slice, then slice!
Its like being asked to prepare a vegetable blindfolded and then have the blindfold taken off.
Its chopped all funny, and wont fit in the pan neatly as expected!
