Gadget- Abu Dhabi question

Hi,

I have a question on how to use Abu Dhabi.

Once I have my loop sliced and ready how do I play it as a complete loop in tempo with my song?

Cheers,
James

    If it is in 16 equal slices, you simply start at the bottom of the piano roll and draw a diagonal line from the bottom left to the top right corner. (Making sure, of course, that your grid is in 16th-note increments.)

    Presuming there are no envelopes or effects on the individual slices, it should sound exactly like the loop you imported.

  • Thank you, that's a useful tip. Is there no way to do if the slices are not equal? E.g when I adjust the slices to match the feel of the original sample?

  • You'll have to turn off quantise and try to line up the start and end points of your notes with those of the slices. By ear is the only way to do this i think.

  • Ah that's a shame. Was hoping they'd be some sort of export midi notes function so I could use it like Dr Rex on reason

    I'm so pleased you noticed!

    I've been holding my breath to make sure I wasn't wrong!
