Importing multiple samples with same length quickly

Post by pixel » Tue Apr 19, 2005 6:13 pm

I only have some success doing this:

"Next, make enough copies of this clip to hold all the individual samples, and drop the samples from the Browser into the clips"
(taken from the manual page 106)

I have a copy of a file that has the right warp settings in the clip slot.
After that, I drag a file with exactly the same length onto the clip display, clip view or the clip name fields.

Sometimes this works, and the new file gets the same warp settings and the correct length, sometimes not.

Is this the right procedure?
Why doesn't it work?

Is there a way in which I can make this work without problems - and perhaps drag all the files I want to have the same settings into live at once?

Also, the clip name changes to the copy of the template file - I don't want that - can I avoid that somehow?

Hope that someone knows... :-)
