Getting audio samples to work in session view


This is probably quite an obvious and basic thing to know but I cant seem to find anything about it anywhere - basically when I work in arrangement view I can trim and loop my samples, place them anywhere I want so they sound how I want them to sound when I want them to sound - if that makes sense. But, I am trying to learn session view and when I drop an already trimmed and looped audio sample into a clip it does not play properly, it seems to lengthen the loop as if its going to play the whole song that I have sampled from - do I have to re-do my samples especiallly for session view or am I missing something really basic?

    Are the clips in arrangement view actually set to loop, or do you just copy/paste them?

    Also make sure your "loop" markers are correct; these are distinct from start/end markers, so you can have a clip that starts from beginning but loops in the middle. However, arragnement view clips' start/end markers can also be set by dragging the clip edges along the timeline

    Hi Cygnal

    The clips in arrangement arent actually looped, but just have set start end points which I set with the numbered positions in the sample editor box as I find that easier than messing about with the loop brace.

    Think I'll have a play with it some more, thanks for the advice!
