Is it possible to see what the click values are, of the transients of an (audio) percussion loop?

I’m asking because i’ve created a quantize grid based on a 2 bar audio percussion loop and it’s not working. the midi percussion tracks' timing are clearly not lining up. I’ve been wondering about this for some time now

I hope i’m stating this clearly! by click values i mean the smallest timing increments found in the event list window. there are 240 of them per 16th note, which is the default i believe.

thanks in advance

btw - the audio file itself may be a problem. it’s an old Zero Gravity audio loop and the format is not a straight up AIFF or WAV file. that may be causing the problem

In Logic Pro they are called "ticks". You could click-hold a transient, which creates a Flex Marker, and you'll see its bar/beat/division/tick position value in the LCD display while you're holding down the mouse button. Then press Command-Z to undo the Flex Marker creation.

It could be. You can convert the file (Control-click the audio region and choose Convert > Convert to New Audio Files). 

Don't hesitate to post some screenshots of your attempt at making this work, or to share an example of a loop that shows the issue, or better yet a Logic project with that loop so that one of us can see what's going on?

Hey David, a very belated thank you for answering my post. helpful indeed!

btw - i determined the 'quantize to audio problem' is due to the song file itself. I believe it was orginally a Logic 8 file from long ago. I repeated the procedure on a brand new song file and everything worked fine.

thanks again
