I was working with a friend who uses mainly FL Studio. He does a lot of wave editing in Sony Acid Pro. He showed me how he is able to manipulate the wave in Acid in the pick/paint/play interface. Say we have a 4 bar loop and we make that 4 bar loop into 4 slices that are 1 bar slices, respectively. You easily grab the slices and move them around non destructively to preview the rearrangement.
I can do this in most DAW's by creating a track that holds the loop. In this case our 4 bar loop. And slice them in that track and then create another track and pull down the slices in different sequences, to test in the new track. However, I can't, like Acid, do this all in the edit window of Ableton Live.
Does anyone know if this can be done? If so how do you do it?
