Slice to midi - user presets??

Post by dominicw78 » Fri Feb 28, 2020 4:50 am

Does anyone know if it's possible to create your own user preset for slice to midi? Mainly I would like for no macros to be automatically set such as it is now, with the volume envelope, attack, etc and the loop setting which are all globally mapped to each slice when I do a slice to midi. 

As it's a total laborious time waster having to unmap them all one by one.

In a midi track create a new Drum Rack, drag an empty Simpler onto its first pad, then name the rack e.g. 'Simpler (No Mappings)'.
Drag the Drum Rack to the Browser/Places/User Library/Defaults and drop it on the Slicing folder.

Now you can use 'Simpler (No Mappings)' as your Slicing Preset (instead of using 'Built-in').
All samples will still be sliced to Simplers in a Drum Rack, but minus all the unwanted mappings.
