Kontakt 5 Slowing and slicing a loop - am I being a moron (rhetorical)?
#1065621 - 09/09/13 01:31 PM
Please could someone help - I am relatively new to the world of Kontakt
5, but basically all I want to do it slow a loop down then split it into slices mapped
over a few notes of the piano roll in my DAW (Logic - easy enough using the EXS 24 but for
whatever reason I want to use Kontakt). I have managed to do this, but it involved
importing the loop into a new Kontakt instrument, slowing the beat using Time Machine
Pro2, exporting and triggering that slowed loop from Logic, bouncing that file, converting
it to a wav, dropping the wav into a new Kontakt instrument, then slicing that and
exporting using the export to midi button thing.
Every time I tried to do it
in one step, depending what setting on TM Pro or Beatmachine I used it played back: a)
twice as fast as intended; b) at the right speed but with really noticeable sort of pauses
between each slice; or at the original speed of the loop.
My project is set to
119 bpm, the loop's original speed is 76 bpm, but I want the loop to play at effectively
59.5 (i.e. half 119) bpm - this might be the source of my problems, but I tried having
Kontakt not sync'd to Logic and setting the global tempo in Kontakt to 59.5 but it still
Any thoughts or advice (other than read the manual - I have - a
lot) would be welcome.
