I don’t believe this topic has been discussed, at least I haven’t been able to find any direct references.
- I would love to be able to slice a sample while listening to it with the press of a button, or by CV control from an external gate or trigger.
Slightly longer version:
I’m trying to use the ER-301 for hip-hop style beat making with samples. This involves slicing on exact moments in a song, not necessarily on a period, division or onset. It would be a breeze to chop them up by listening to the sample and hitting a button right where I want to slice the sample. I don’t believe that is possible right now. Is that something others would be interested in, something to put on a future features list? (0.4 is not about sampling I know)
If not, slicing on the computer would do the trick for now and I know there was talk about that here Slice using computer? Not sure if this is still on the horizon.
Oh yes, another question: is it possible to play a sample FROM slice and then play the rest of the sample (effectively ignoring the END of the slice)? Seems like at the moment you need to choose between playing or looping a slice, or loosing the ability to target starting points in the sample.
P.S. This is not by any means meant to distract anyone from the next 0.4 firmware release of course, just ignore this entire topic in fact!
