  • Workflow: Looking for best practices for "bouncing" WIP tracks for listening elsewhere

    Answering my own question, here's the workflow that I've found useful:

    Review the sketches I've made that week, and then for the ones I'd like to keep working on:
    \
    1. Re-sample the song to create a "bounce" of the sketch
    2. Add the bounced version to a muted track
    3. Save the file using the "collect all" feature so it's all neatly in a folder (and easily identifiable on the card)
    4. Backup the SD card

    Then, from there, I throw all the bounces onto my iPhone (into the GarageBand > GB File Transfers folder) and add all of the sketches as individual "live loops" in a "Deluge Sketches" project in GarageBand iOS. I use the live loops option so that the sketch just continues to loop, even if I've only created a short bounce.

    From here, I can listen through my sketches in progress anytime.

    Hope that this might help someone else with a similar question.

  • Midi track -> External Synth -> Record as sample -> Create synth with sample

    @Icoustik said:
    There are several differences, normalizing being an important one. Other ones:

    • Audio clips can be live-looped, resamples cannot.
    • Resamples can be accessed instantly in the browser after recording, while audio clips can only be accessed after saving the song so that they are moved from the TEMP folder into the CLIPS folder. Relevant to many things, like e.g. slicing after sampling.
    • Audio clips do not have all the modulation/ automation possibilities that synth/kit clips do
      (remember samples can be loaded into synth clips too :) )

    This is super-helpful, thank you!

  • Samples that won't import (and best practices)

    Thanks everyone. I'll send them over to Rohan to see what's up. 🙏
