Export slices from Simpler as individual WAVs?

I've searched around, but haven't really found an answer for this. I'm using Live Lite 9.6. What I want to do is very basic. Create pitched up sample packs for hardware like Volca Sample / Novation Circuit

Here's are my goals
- Take a large chunk of audio and tune/speed/speed it up ( I'm doing this to save sample time. Pitch it down in hardware aka sp1200 trick)... This part is easy
- Create slices from larger audio file (This part is easy too). I'm doing it in Simpler. 
- Export slices as WAV while having the WAV files be pitched up. (This is the part I get stuck at). 

Is there a "render slices to wav" option anywhere?


quick example ... Sample 1 bar drum break into ableton > Pitch up the 1 bar break > Chop it up into 4 slices > Export 4 Slices to use in other hardware samplers.

* I'm trying to avoid manually creating separate files and renaming for each sample slice.

    There does not seem to be an affirmative answer to this question as of Feb '17...
    Just a whole bunch of us wondering the same thing.

    What about resampling?

    It seems you can just right-click in the Simpler waveform and choose slice-to-drumrack.

    If you've sliced to a midi track using a sampler preset (or if you are using a the sampler instrument) this works:

    In the sampler for that track, click the zone tab to open that view, and select all the samples. Right-click and choose crop — all the samples will be rendered inside your project folder: project > samples > processed > crop

    I learned this here (but found no need to make a new preset): https://youtu.be/3Kte9PGnNwY?t=47s

    Hey deux,

    you make my day :-) this video was really helpful. I have no clue why Ableton does not make a "official" Version or explain this in the manual - also a default preset for this would be helpful... But anyway - The best thing is, that you can even normalise the samples after cropping it. A quastion that is also often ask and never was correctly answered.

    THX!

    because Ableton for some unknown reason doesn't seem to care about the process side of actually creating samples in the first place, unbelievably for a company who makes their entire identity on PLAYING samples.

    You almost have to buy Push 2 just to cut samples. it's so fricking stupid, and there should be a batch export function OF COURSE!

    I should be able to import a long sample file, set points along where I want samples cut (while they play continuously in the bg to make the samples perfect, and then mass export all those points. Instead, I have garbage I don't need.

    The quickest way I have found to export samples from a drum rack is to click on the hotswap button in the rack of the sample you want to export. This opens the files location in the browser. Drag the file from the browser and drop it anywhere you want.
    I make a folder in explorer and have the 2 windows side by side. You can export a full rack using this method in 10-15 min. Hope I understood the question and if anyone knows a quicker way,I would LOVE to hear it.
