Quick way to grab the loop brace - Live 8

Post by joelbgwu » Thu Oct 15, 2009 8:28 pm

Instead of having to search for, click on, then move the loop brace to create a loop. Try this instead, it brings the loop brace to the screen you're working on.

In the arrangement view:

1. Click on the part of the track where you want the loop to start (sets the arrangement insert marker)
2. Press Shift + right or left arrow key (expands the arrangement insert marker)
3. Press CTRL + L (moves the loop brace to the arrangement marker)

The loop brace will now be transported to the screen you are working on :)

Hope this helps.

Joel

Zeropoint gave me this tip on another post that makes looping even easier...

Guess I missed that in the manual?
