Can someone please help me with my sampling problem?

Post by Kevin H » Wed Jul 11, 2012 9:15 pm

Hi. I created two samples from two clips from one of my songs so that I could play synths while playing these samples over the synths. The clips are in an Audio track bar and mapped to my drum pads on my Akai MPK 61. However, whenever I play a sample, it has to start a new measure before another one plays. For example, if I press Sample 1, and press my drum pad to play Sample 1 again, it won't loop back to the beginning instantly; however, after a new measure starts, the clip will then start over. Or when I play Sample 1 and while that sample is still playing, I play Sample 2, sample 2 won't start until the start of a new measure. What am I doing wrong? I want that to go away because the delays are ruining what I'm trying to do. The only way I can play a sample when I want it is if I press "Stop" on my Akai MPK 61 midi controller before I play a new sample. What am I doing wrong? Thank you.

each clip has settings. double click the clip in question and turn off the quantize.
