Record and stop (instead of overdub)
Hey so hopefully this makes sense. I'll explain it more in depth, but the TL:DR is that I want to go launch a section of clips right out of recording something live and have the clip I'm recording STOP instead of automatically playing/looping.
So to get specific: Currently working with live looping with the Deluge and overall, it's the best. My current workflow is something like this:
I start with a kit that's a basic drum loop. I create series of loops by creating audio tracks , arming recording, then launching those clips so they overdub.
Once I've got my initial loop set up, I copy any sections I want to carry over (primarily drums) then create a new audio track, switch it's section to purple, and then when I launch the section and record my first loop in the b section, everything else stops! Hooray! I can loop and have things really change to a whole new progression no problem.
I'm then able to similarly create audio tracks in the purple section fairly easily (assuming I want more than 1 overdub here)
Here's where I run into trouble: I would like to go right from recording my last overdub back to my a section and have the loop I'm recording stop, so that I can then later relaunch the section, but not have it continue to play OVER my a section. Currently what happens is that even if it's in the purple section, when I launch the a section (blue group of clips) the last thing that I was recording continues to play as if I want it to loop, really screwing up my ability to cut right back to my initial loop seamlessly.
Am I missing something? If I just do 1 loop, and then use RECORD + CLIP I can make it so the loop stops, and then those loops are forever mutually exclusive, which is great.... except if I can't seem to make this work for groups of loops, which would be handy!
Hope I explained myself clearly enough. Too much coffee, not enough food.
