Quantized loop markers
here is a problem I step into over and over again:
I want to record an audio file that is 8 bars long. The audio already contains synced delays and what not. I want to set a loop start marker at bar 5 so that the audio loops from bar 5 to end of bar 8 again and again and again.
In Ableton that is super easy. You simply record the damn thing and quickly set the loop start point. Takes 1 second.
On the Deluge: So fa,r I suppose that the best option is to create a new kit clip, not audio clip (right?!). I then press shift+kit and then hit record. I play back the audio (8 bars from Ableton). I hit record again to stop the recording. Now here comes the problem: I can't achieve to find the right position for the end markers and loop markers respectively. It's a horrible fiddling around that takes far too long.
I am thinking of a way to start recording into a kit row starting at the same time as playback and ending exactly after 8 bars. so that afterwards I can set the loop start marker at bar 5 (which is also a problem because Deluge shows time values when adjusting loop points, but of course I could then simply divide the duration of the audio by 2).
I think this should be possible but I just don't know how. Please point me in the right direction.
Just make sure to save the song before doing this. Otherwise audio clips may still be inaccessible in the TEMP folder. 👍🏼
ok maybe I should try things first and then post the question here.
What I now did is to use audio clips and make use of the continuous overdub function. I record the first 4 bars in one audio clip and the next four bars in the second audio clip. Start and end points are perfectly in time.
But actually I would rather do the same thing in a kit clip. Is that somehow possible?
once u have the two recordings in audio clips:
enter audio clip 1, hit shift+browse and then exit (saves location of last browsed file) go to into kit, press an audition pad+load then confirm the first sample. do the same with the second audio clips sample. now you can use both samples that have been recorded properly in a kit clip.
ah yes of course. I guess that was to obvious to see by myself
So I assume there is no similar way of recording directly in the kit clip, right?!
