Newbie Question - Samples

Hi, newbie question here. When I drop a sample into the arrangement, how can I resize it so it snaps to my quantized beats and also copy and place it at places other than the start of each bar?

Right now, im placing a sample, say a kick drum on bar 1 beat 1, I want to trim it slightly, but the only way I can do this is by turning off snapping, however I want snapping on. Also I want to move it to lets say position 1.2, I cant, it only moves to the start of bar 2.

Can anyone help with this basic issue?

Try the Quantize Grid and change it accordingly…Bars & Beats: 1, 1/2, 1/4, 1/8, etc.

When you open the sample editor you can see a thin line usually somewhere at the beginning of the event. That’s the so called snap point that snaps to the grid instead of the events start. You can drag it anywhere in the event.

As an alternative take a look at ‘relative grid’ - one of the grid modes accessed on top on the project window. If active you can hold Alt and copy events by simple dragging, they will snap to their relative grid position.
