Looping clips of different lengths

Post by marra » Thu Jun 23, 2011 5:34 am

Hey!

Say I have one audio clip that's 1.1.0 in length and one that's 0.2.1 (both are 95 BPM) - how do I get these to loop perfectly? They do loop perfectly for the first few seconds but after a while they go out of sync and start sounding horrible.

Do I need to do some mathematics to figure out how long either one or both of these audio clips should be?

Thanks!

Do you know what the 3 numbers stand for? Ableton manual.

Do you know about basic rhythmic subdivision? Google it :)

They aren't lining up because you have an extra .1 on the end of your 0.2.1 which means an extra sixteenth note (4 of those in one beat, 4 beats in one measure).

So yea, get rid of that extra sixteenth note and you should be golden.

Frankly reposting another new topic is a bit silly.
Keep on with your first one.
