How do you manage to get 6 secs melodic samples usable for sustained notes, with a seamless loop point?
For example, lets say I want to sample a moog bass synth sound in order to make a pad out of it, using the op-1:
- I record a bit more than 6 secs of A note in the lower range (so I get the meat of the sound), with full sustain in the enveloppe settings of the hardware .
- Then, in audacity, I cut the audio @ exactly 6 secs straight long sample.
- Export as .aiff, then rename as .aif
- Import the sample into the op-1
When I keep pressing the key, the sound is NOT played seamlessly and you can definitely hear the loop point (sample ends / starts again).
I try to adjust the loop points manually but I can't get decent results...
Does it occur because I sampled low pitch instead of high pitch, with a slow oscillation that prevents perfect sample loop?
I noticed that many custom sounds provided by op-1 users (like samples from old casio's or yamaha's) DO HAVE a seamless loop point !
So you can maintain the notes as long as you want :-O
What' your trick guyz?
