Launchpad app ..copy samples to other pads?

edited January 20 in General App Discussion

I digging back into launchpad, and can’t remember. is there a way to copy a sample from pad to another? or do you have to dive back into the sample list and assign it to each pad one at a time?

    I had a look as I haven't used Launchpad in ages.

    It doesn't do sample copying from pad to pad as far as I can tell.
    The best way would be to favourite the samples that you like to use
    and find them that way.

  • If you're using Blocs Wave, you can arrange it how you want, then send it immediately to Launchpad.

    Thank for the tip.

    Good idea

  • Using blocs is the best method, with blocs the sample browsing is better than in LP...plus you have the discover tool, as well as the EQ (if you have the IAP)

    that seems to be working nicely, are botha apps’ libraries the same , and shared between the two apps?

    Packs are shared between the 2 apps yes, I don't think user samples are though, for that, use blocs to send your project to LP and the sample will go over.

    so if you import from blocs wave, can you move them around to other pads in launchpad?

    Nop. If you go the Blocs route you need to edit in Blocs and then export again. Not the most natural workflow but fast enough.
    Also you can transform loop launch into trigger so you can chop things on Blocs and send it to Launchpad for finger drumming. You should do it in the same row so my advice be creative with half of the slots if you want to still keep some instrumental under.
    4 chops or even 6 vs 2 loops in the same row. If you need more then put half channels as chops and half as loops. That will give you 4x8 = 32 slices that will not cut the loop launching and can share by channel volume, fx and so... if you need more or less just adjust the slots you use.

    You should see Blocs as editor for Launchpad...

    Not quitew, as @TheDubbyLabby says, use blocs as an editor for Launchpad, and use Launchpad for the actual performance. The only thing you have to do in Launchpad is change the pad type and playback quantisation for each pad, once you set it though, it stays set so you dont have to do it every time.
    This works even better with a physical launchpad attached as you can stay in blocs while playing the Launchpad app from the LP hardware.
