Loop start on even beats with odd loop lengths

Post by pixel » Fri May 27, 2005 7:14 am

Hi there,

Is there a way that I can make sure that loops start on a specific beat?
The reason for this is that I have some loops that are 3 or 5 or 7 beats long and I would like them to start on the next 1 after I press return to play them.

Anyone?

Btw I don't want to use the scene possibility since I work with all loops independently.

When you are mixing time signatures, I think the only way to get your clips fired in session view is to set global quantize to 1 beat instead of a whole bar. You can assign follow actions or use arrangement of course, but that's a different ball of wax.

Thanks for your reply :-)

I think that the 1 bar setting is ok. Before I used the 1/8 setting and that forced me to concentrate on pressing enter on the right beat. I'll go and check it out later thanks :-)
