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.
