Pick up note Question...

Post by ai-DEL » Fri Oct 07, 2005 6:12 pm

I'm working with a line that starts on beat three (pick up note) and then drops into the main part on beat one of the chorus. My question is this: When I'm working in session view...Is there a way to hit play on the chorus scene before the downbeat and pick up that two-beat lead-in to the chorus line and then drop into the regular loop? Or am I going to have to chop up that line and put the two beats in the scene before the chorus? Or is there something else I could do?

Appreciate it.

Move the start marker of the clip 1 bar before the bracketed looped section begins in the clip and include the note on beat 3 of that bar before the brackets. Now make sure to trigger the clip 1 full bar before the start of the chorus.

Do this for any other clips requiring a pickup and trigger them at the same time.
