  1. Just to say I'm running Sam Pro 11.02 J
  2. I thought I'd try this here as I didn't get a response in the Software forum. I wonder if anyone's had any experience at using the swing quantization function with Jazz? I'm multi tracking some original tunes and want to set up some click tracks. The swing function with Sibelius and my drum machine are too rigid to record with. I experimented with taking a real bassist's performance and mapping the transients and making a groove template, but it's problematical: there are many stray peaks and not all get picked up by the Q grid; and the timing can be be very personal - I just want a regular but groovy click track. I made a series of 4 bar MIDI strips of walking bass (I selected "8 bar MIDI track" and the click is on the 1/4 note, but I actually have 4 bar sections!!) and set them against the click. If I set the Q grid to 1/4 note and the Q length to anything, I get wild synchopation, whatever the swing percentage is set to. If I choose less than that, nothing happens. Also, is there a way to either have a longer MIDI empty section for step time input, and is there a way to have the quantization set for all the separate strips, rather than the one selected in the MIDI editor? I was hoping the variable swing setting + the humanizer button would do it, but I may have to go back to using transients, in which case, can anyone answer this: is it possible to delete transients before you make a groove template? Can you add input lines to the groove template? I found sometimes it was exactly the transient you wanted that didn't show up. Obviously, you can move the MIDI notes around by hand. Any advice appreciated. I notice there are lots of preset groove templates for pop music etc - I guess Jazz is too much a backwater to find templates for it. Thanks Jamie
  3. Thanks Martin - I can now twiddle with the frequency 'til I get it right.. + stay digital! Best wishes Jamie
  4. Hi there I tried this topic in the Software forum - I'm not sure whether it's too simple or too hard a problem for them: I remember a while back asking about live monitoring using a hardware FX unit - the solution was so complicated I gave up and used impulse reverb instead. I'm close to taking the feed from the soundcard + re-recording into my hard-disc recorder! Anyway, here goes.. I'm trying to record a stereo drum track thro' the PSP84 as an intro - one of the patches makes it sound like a 50's Sci-Fi electronic piece. Every time it goes thro' the plugin it sounds different plus I need to tweak the resolution in real time, so I have to hear the bounce. I tried the mixdown bounce to a wav file + the mixinfile option on the mixer, but I can't hear anything. I'm sure there's something I'm missing, but the help pages + post searching didn't help. Help! Thanks again Jamie
