Reworking a mix - Moving data around

Post by Guest » Tue Dec 02, 2003 3:25 am

I'm getting soooo nervous about the way Live works with large data blocks ... and maybe I'm just overlooking something, so I'm posting my question here.

A lot of my stuff is built around loops, and on top of it I placed vocals. Right now I need to create a longer mix of a song I made.

Now, the loops snap perfectly in place with the grid, but as I'm having vocals that start a bit before each bit, I have problems rearranging without loosing the current position. For example. I select the bars 2-4 and the vocals starts at 1.5, the vocal gets cut off and I can only move the part 1.5-4 ... there is a small snippet that stays on position 1.5 ...

Also, I don't seem to catch all midi events that are recorded when I move around whole blocks of data. I carefully open the events in the mix screen so I can catch it, but some events I seem to miss ...

Anyway, can somebody enlighten me ?

zoom in to higher grid resolution; that way you can still use snap ;)

Suit #2: No, sir, he says he does this sort of thing for fun.
