True, but live is also a sampler. Didn't stop them from charging us extra for a sampler.yourmom wrote:live is a slicer.
So if you put two and two together, we will be charged for a slicer in version 7.
quoted from this thread:Robert Henke wrote: We believe, that the concept of a multisampler as a host for drum sounds is a technical restriction of the past. The same goes for beat slicing. There must be better ways for this. We are working on it and once we found a good solution we will release it. Racks is a first step into our new world. We will collect experiences and we will refine.
This is only true if you're making a one or a few 'slices'. If you're making MANY edits to the audio, scissors are MUCH faster. Yes you have to select it, but once you do it's a simple click, click, click where you want cuts. Versus needing to select a new slice, CMD+E, select another slice, CMD+E. CMD+E is certainly a valid way of doing it, but not at all the most efficient when you need to do this dozens of times for each drum fill.leisuremuffin wrote:ehhh, wrong. you have to click on the scissors tool before you can use it, and back on whatever tool you were using before afterwards, so it's actually more clicking. Unless you use a keystroke to pick the scissors tool, in which case, what's wrong with ctrl-e as the keystroke to split????

open impulse in a midi channel and your loop to be sliced in an audio channel.
loop the audio file, and set the start and end point so it's as short as you need it to be. (each hit/16th note/whatever...)
then just drag the loop into a slot in sampler, go back, find teh next section/slice you want and drag that into the next slot... and so on... not a one step solution, but you don't have to leave session view.
you can halve those keystrokes too - you dont need cmd/ctrl+e - you just select the 16th from within the loop then drag the selection straight to impulse (this is in arrange)3rdordertrauma wrote:Heres what I do... as I'm sure lots and lots of others as well.
1. Drop the loop in the arrange window (provided it has been warped the next steps work fast and flawless.
2. Set a loop region the smallest it will go (1/4) at the start of the loop. Lets for example say this is a one bar loop and we want to chop it in 16th notes.
3. Highlight the loop with your mouse hit command + E. This make your first slice at the first quarter note.
4. Arrow key over one 16th note and repeat. Hit command + E and the makes your next 2 slices at the first and fifth 16th notes.
5. Continue to arrow key over just long enough each time to hit the command + E, making 2 slices at a time.
6. 19 keystrokes later your one bar loop is chopped into perfect 16th notes and ready to drag into sampler or impulse. All with out ever touching the mouse.
If thats not easy I don't know what is.

Sounds like hoffman's got some ideas though, which is good to hear!
