I have to say THANK YOU steinberg for including this great little sampler in cubase, it’s an amazing tool, and I might even be replacing NI battery with it. Still Battery has a great modulation matrix with LFOs and enveloppes, but other than that GASE4 has everything else I think, a lot can be done with it, it’s really awesome, worth the upgrade alone.
EDIT: another big difference with battery is there is no effects per cell/pad but only for the whole kit.
If I drag and drop an audio clip from the arrange page, the entire audio file is referenced. I can’t figure out how to truncate only the slice of audio I want (rather than keep the full audio file). This makes saving patches very heavy on disk usage if all I want is a snare from a 7 minute track. Hope that makes sense!
If anyone has figured this out, would love to hear how!
Within GASE4 I’m not sure if each pad has its own insert fx, but a workaround is to activate the multi-outs and use inserts from within Cubase. I don’t think GASE4 is a standalone product so it’d probably make more sense to add insert fx to your Cubase mixer.
In the arrange window, when I cut and manipulate a segment of audio I get the option to create new version. I think this is what you’re looking for. So the snippet of audio you slice needs to be saved as a new version. I won’t have C7.5 until Friday. Hope that points you into the right direction.
I think GA and Battery are very different tools. GA is useful for drag and drop from within the project area. However, it doesn’t allow you to cycle through a folder of samples for an individual pad, which is what makes Battery great and super fast to use.
