Slice region transient detection

22

It would be great if the Deluge could detect transients when slicing, rather than just dividing the sample up into the same size regions.

For instance, a vocal phrase would be divided up so that each word of the phrase gets it's own audition pad, without having to fiddle with the start/end points of each slice.

    be cool yes.
    (pretty sure it took Ableton 'till version 7 to get slicing by warp markers...but then again they didnt have Rohan so...)

    Lots of 'old school' grooveboxes had auto transient detection, and some of those machines are nearly 20 years old! So I wouldn't have thought it would be that big of a job to add now? Although I know nothing about coding...

    youre right, im pretty sure my old sp505 from 2002 could detect transients.

    The auto-placement of warp markers (i.e transient detection) in Ableton was pretty awful and frequently took much manual adjustment for many versions iirc. If you're just dealing with drums, it's easier, but if you're adding harmonic stuff, the detection can get tricky.

    But I'm pretty the guys will they'll get there. :)

    i wouldnt want to loose the current slice-equal-parts, for example slicing a drum loop that fits the BPM.
    dont know about the difficulty for transient detection, I reckon it is easier today. More common to see in software than in early Ableton days. More support for transient detection in the dsp community nowadays I guess.

    @amiga909
    I’d also want to keep the current option too, it’s fun to do glitchy stuff with.
    But transient detection would be great.

    If the PO33 can do both (divide evenly or transient detection) then I have no doubt that the Deluge can do it too. Not a huge issue for me but if it was added I'd be pretty happy.

    yeah, i'd like to see this suggestion in the >50 votes region :)
    should also trim silence.
