Is it possible to drag a midi 'loop preview' into an actual track?
Hi, hoping someone out there can help me, i will explain as simply as possible what i'm trying to accomplish.
I would like get some beats going, quickly and easily.
I understand i can drag either drumbeats in .wav or .aif file format from the browser on the left into tracks on the right, and that works fine.
However, now i'm looking in the browser under 'drums', and, for example, i select the Kit-Core 707.adg , which is midi. I drag that .adg file into a midi track, and it doesn't play, as expected, until i take the next step and either add a groove file into the track (.agr), or draw midi patterns myself.
Of course, prior to dragging the Kit Core 707.adg into a midi track, there's an option to preview it, located at the bottom of the browser, the area with the little blue headphone icon on the left and the RAW button on the right. There, a sound file can be observed in the 'loop preview' window, and clicking on it plays a sample of the selected drumbeat, in our case, Kit Core 707.
Is there any way to drag the 'loop preview', exactly as it plays in the browser, into a track? Is the 'loop preview' of the various drum kits a sound file located somewhere in the library, or is Ableton somehow generating the preview otherwise?
I'd like to be able to simply drag the sound i'm hearing from the loop preview into a track, is that possible to do, and if so, how? I've searched everywhere and it seems like such an easy thing to do, i feel like i'm missing something.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions, advice or help you can provide.
