How to turn external synth into an audio clip?
Suppose you made a MIDI clip driving an external synth and you got everything setup right. You like the sound and you got all the automations in the MIDI clip and you're happy with the outcome. Now you want to use the same synth for something else so you want to "materialize" or "rasterize" that MIDI clip into an audio track to "freeze" it. There are so many ways to go about doing it but they're all slightly inconvenient.
If the MIDI clip is clip 1, you can then create a synth clip in clip 2. Turn the synth type to input. Turn clips 1 and 2 on, then record+play to resample. Once it's resampled, create a new kit clip 3. Pick a kit sound for the first sound and select the previously resampled sample. Insert a note in the kit track. Delete clips 1 and 2. 8 steps. And AFAICT, it doesn't time-stretch anymore if you adjust your tempo.
Or if the MIDI clip is clip 1, create a new audio clip 2. Select audio source to be stereo (from input). Arm clips 1 and 2. Record and play. Make sure to press record again before clip 1 loops. Delete clip 1. 6 steps.
Is there a way to express the idea that clip 1 is MIDI and it's exactly looped back into input. I want to turn that MIDI clip 1 into an audio clip 1 in one step? I think Akai MPC calls it autosampler or something.
