I’d really like to be able to do a few things in the definition mode of the Sample Editor. I’d like your opinions so that I can figure out if I’m doing things efficiently/correctly. Or, maybe I misunderstand some of it. Or, do we have some useful FRs to pass along.
- Grid … please, please, please, please … allow all grid settings (ie, 64, dot and trip etc). Display all sub-tick units in the grid bar. And, default the sample editor to the main bars/beats settings from the project windows when opened.
2)I’d like to be able to insert and delete my own warp bars in manual mode. Then have auto “refigure”. I realize you have attempted to find a tempo and sig in auto mode. Let me adjust that please. I have a clip where an 8th is being seen as a 16th. So, I have a dropped last note according to the Auto System. I can’t insert the correct warp bar. However, I can slide all 460 existing bars down 1 beat manually… but who the hell wants to do that.
The Hitpoint detector from the Hitpoints section does a better job of dialing in the transients. Is there some reason you can’t implement that type of detector in the Definition window instead of the Auto “can’t” Adjust? Again, I know the detector has to figure out a time/sig map… but can’t you do that AFTER hit point detection is complete?
Give us the ability to anchor beat lines. So that when we stretch/shrink the grid we can control what segment of the sample we are trying to adjust. I have a track where the Auto Adjust did a great job early, but messed up the middle. If you just stretch the beat bars over a range, that would rock. But, it adjusts for the entire sample even though it’s already perfect for the first 20 or so measures. (am I missing something here?)
Lastly, show the beat bars on the part in the project window. Let me make minor adjustments to individual beats in context of the project. It would echo the SET BEAT POSITION function in the Sample Editor.
