I think it would be really usefull to have a simple cutting option in the Card Player, like define Start and Endpoint and then save Loop to Sample Pool. I have long Audio Files from Jam Sessions and Field Recordings that are too big for the Pool. Would be great to have the ability to cut out the usefull bits without the Computer.
I can see you point, but I think that would defeat the original purpose of the card player. What has been asked before and would equally solve your problem, is sort of an audio processor in the admin area, that would enable you to perform tasks like cut, normalize and so forth independent of any unit in the ER-301’s chains.
How about recording the output of the card player into a buffer using any of the looper units?
Yes, good workaround, thanks. And the option in the Admin Area is a great Idea too.
