I’d like to know what is the minimum size of a slice.
Indeed, can we go lower than proper micro time (even if we enter into digital artifacts domain) ?
At the moment, slices do not have a size. They mark a point in time. However, if you are asking about the precision of slice placement then it is currently 8 samples.
The internal resolution of this time is naturally down to the individual sample. HOWEVER! The UI doesn’t yet let you pinpoint individual samples (yet) because the maximum zoom is 4 samples per pixel and on top of that the the cursor is moving 2 pixels at a time, so that is a maximum precision of 8 samples from the point of view of the UI. Providing a zoom level where single samples extend further than one pixel column is not difficult at all, but just requires a different drawing algorithm than the algorithm used when multiple samples occupy a single column of pixels.
Hi Brian, and thanks a lot for your answer.
It means we can have slices very tiny, so, as soon as I can loop tiny slices (eventually overdub different slices), it is good for my sample manipulations.
Was there an update to the drawing algorithm allowing a slice to go down to a single sample?
