possible to use preview sound riff?

Post by dmnelson » Wed Aug 05, 2020 12:06 am

Hello experts,
When previewing midi drums or other midi sounds in Live 10 they play a bar or so of music, displayed in the preview tab. Is it possible to copy that exact preview sample to put into a track?

I'm glad you've had success. Since the previews are of midi sounds, their notation info must be getting read from somewhere. Maybe I'll find out.

Previews from packs' presets are compressed audio files.
You can find them inside the pack's folder (on osx right click the pack in Finder, and select "show content". No idea how it's called on Win, though)
