Much like the Tracker’s functionality, I would like the ability to bounce single or multiple tracks to the sample pool allowing me to both free up my tracks and import the bounced sample into my project
What is the problem?
One of the great things with the tracker is to take multiple tracks, bounce them down to a single sample, and then import that sample back as an instrument. The Play+ has an amazing synth and sample engine but limited tracks.
What do you want to achieve?
I would like to select multiple tracks in the sample or synth page, bounce them down to a track that can imported to the sample pool.
Are there any workarounds?
You can bounce with the stems, take out the SD card, load it on your computer, move the file to the card, bring the card back into the Play+ and then import the sample to your library.
As I’m staying with the OG Play, this would be really useful to have as chords made with melodic samples can easily eat up to several tracks out of eight tracks available in total, and what if I want overlapping chords?
This wish applies to the OG too, does it?
Wow, this workflow is actually working well for my needs.
What I do:
put as many notes as I need for a chord on different audio tracks then Export → Current Pattern Master, load exported master into the Sample pool and voila, I have a chord sample.
So Play actually has resampling! (sort of).
Also had some fun applying repeat fx, then resampling, again applying different type of repeat fx, resampling, repeat… well, you got it.
The only drawback with this aprroach is that exported fiiles all have the same name ‘master’, maybe hard to distinguish between them later on.
Thank you very much, appreciated! You made my day.
upd: at least I can load exported files in to separate Sample Pool folders named accordingly
This works like a charm! I always imagined that exported audio went to a folder that was not accessible to be loaded as samples. Funny thing is that I do this all the time with the Tracker, but my brain never made the link that the Play could work in a similar fashion. Thanks so much!
Haa, so just Export Current Pattern Master and reload the Sample. Adjust Start and End and you’ve Sliced your loop.
Bit silly since you can copy-paste multiple steps, but for bouncing down to get more tracks its a great tip!
OG would bounce to mono again, but Plus could even contain the reverb etc? need to try
@dan.lgrnd I’ve added a link to my own wish (Pick name and location for exports) in the description, as I think they are related (also linked the other way back in my own wish description). I was considering whether they are in fact different ways of trying to achieve the same – do you think we could merge these two?
Oh i see there is already a way to do this. No need to regret the solution, but I see why it would make sense to spend time and votes on other suggestions. I removed mine to have a spare vote for something that doesn’t have a workaround.
