problem warping a 32 bar clip

Post by Bierman » Fri Jan 18, 2008 11:41 pm

I'm tearing my hair out over this. I have a 32 bar bass sample in my set, but the clip's sample end setting will NOT allow me to set the end point to 33.1.1. Only 32.4.4 - and as a result I can't set the loop length to 32, only 31.3.3

I've taken a screenshot, and tried to include it in this post, but it doesn't seem to work, but here's the link (with the phpBB code anyway) you can just view the pic in another window:

Strangely, I don't actually notice a timing issue, even when the clip loops around umpteen times, so I suppose from a functional POV there's no problem. But it's just not 'right' and its also bothering the hell out of me (bit anal like that)

Hope someone can help.

Drag the end loop marker to the left, then place a new warp marker further back in the file to get to 32 measures.

hah yeah thanks. all I needed to do was drag the end warp marker earlier in time by one sample and then all is ok.

all the samples in the clips are exactly the right length anyway, they're bounces from Logic. so you'd think it'd be a doddle to whack them in and say "these are 32 bars long" seems like a glitch to me.

anyway cheers.

Logic has a long history of making loops that are incorrect in length when bouncing. Has happened at least since Logic version 4.5...
