    best way to slice 1 audio file into many and load into rack?
    I need a good workflow for importing whole audio files from outside ableton then slicing them up into many different hits that I can load into a drum rack or instrument rack... what's the best way to do this? I can use Logic's or Sountrack Pro's audio editor from within Ableton if necessary. Thanks for any help!

    Hi CoFane, The best (easiest) workflow I know to do this in Ableton is to use the Slice Audio to MIDI feature: - Find the audio file in your File Browser. - Control-click on the file and choose "Slice to new MIDI Track" - From the dialogue window you can then choose the grid value for each slice. - Each slice is assigned to a cell and can be triggered using your MIDI Controller. :) Rounik

    You are an animal Rounik! I didn't think you used Live?? The method you suggested is a great one. I knew about the feature but for some reason wasn't thinking about it. One good thing about using this feature to do what I want to do that I can easily get in there and readjust each "simpler"s loop braces to my liking if it slices the audio in a way I don't want. Thanks!

    Hey CoFane, Hee hee... well, I wouldn't call myself an avid Ableton Live user... but I dabble whenever I get time ;-) Glad it's helped. Rounik
