Slice Looping seems to be working pretty great in conjunction with Patterns,
but slicing doesn’t always work great depending on the content and type of sound/instrument, and so warp with sync can be utilized.
I feel like warp with sync is not as smooth to operate though.
I think potentially is because in the pattern editor, or functions, there is no way to send a hold/sustain message to the pad that contains the warp loop, not allowing someone for instance to use the sample playback mode ‘until release’
only ‘one shot’ works which doesn’t function ideally because the sound continues to play when maybe you want to release and stop on a certain beat.
there’s definitely something here that needs to be ironed out a bit, can’t quite put my finger on it yet or maybe I have above.
Maybe never mind, I figured it out with ‘showing note length’ in the pattern editor and drawing full length of loop, this seems to work better with toggling on/off patterns.
