exs24 experts?
« on: November 01, 2015, 05:45:40 AM »
could anyone share with me how to assign the sample start time parameter in exs24?

for example if i have a sample that says "heyyyy get down!"
i want to dynamically adjust the start parameter to make it say "Get down" rather then editing the sample to make 2 different samples to acheive this
with reason nnxt + nn19 this is very easy as their is a dedicated control called sample start
but with exs24 u have to configure it + set it up to work this way somehow im guessing?

Slicing & Dicing

The next stage is to create new audio files for the individual notes. Select the start and end points of each note in turn in the Sample Edit window and then use Logic's Selection To Region option from the Sample Editor's Edit menu to capture these as new files. Get the start point as tight as possible, but don't worry too much about the end, as this is likely to change when you create your loop. Ian Cullen, Emagic's support specialist at their UK distributors Sound Technology, suggests using Logic Audio's Strip Silence function (available from the Audio window's Options menu) to separate the sampled notes automatically.

Give the files names that relate to the sound, including the key note they were played on, and store them in a new folder where you can easily find them. I tend to use, for example, Synthpad-E1, Synthpad-E2, and so on, which complies with one of Emagic's suggested naming conventions. Once the editing is complete, the sample files folder can go in your EXSamples folder and the original long file from which the individual regions were created can be discarded. Samples may be mono or stereo and can be made at any sample rate and bit depth (as set in your audio hardware), though I tend to stick to 44.1kHz as it makes the most effective use of disk space.

thats not what i want to do... i want to use a knob to adjust the sample start parameter
like a physical midi controller knob... to adjust while im pressing key to trigger the sample

i dont want to use this screen to do this.. but here u see the sample start + sample end
i want to assign this parameter to a midi controller to adjust the value dynamically

perhaps exs24 cannot do this... but im guessing that it can?

this is something i do very easily with reason's sampler
