Chopping in Ableton

Post by loulou » Thu Feb 06, 2014 5:00 pm

Hey peeps

I got a question that i hope one of u guys can help me with..

Ive started making sample-based hiphop beats in Ableton using an MPD (i used to have an MPC, so this is quite close)

I normally just put the song i want to sample from into an Audio-track and then chop it up so I got the different chops in Drum Rack (you know, the standard procedure when you chop samples)

But once my chops are in drum rack, i need to hold down the pad for the sample to play, and i want it so that all my samples plays to the end when i hit the pad(s). I know i can just turn up the 'release' button, but it seems to me that then i would have to do it for all chops individually?

Thank you!

Nah, you only have to change it on one of the Simplers. Then right click and "copy value to siblings" and you'll be sorted.

Or you can use one shot mode and trigger not gate

but you what the person above said works well too if you're in classic mode
