Fast way to chop up loop and map it to keys?

Is there any function in Logic studio to chop up audio and map the individual parts on different keys e.g. in Ultrabeat?

The only way I could think of is manually chopping the audio in the Arrange window and then loading one by one in a sample player such us ultrabeat or exs24.

I was thinking if there is any trick to do this fast.

 

Thanks

The dead simplest way would be to do a Flex detection on the audio file and then control click the audio file and choose Convert / Convert to New Sampler Track. Click the "Create zones from Transient markers" button and specify the key range. (Note, if you stay with the default, your loop may start below the range of your keyboard.)

 

This will create an EXS sampler instrument with all the hits mapped out in a row plus a midi file of same.

if you don't care about transients and the loop is quantized, for example if you want to mess up a loop shaking the slices you can keep pressed alt with scissors and it will automatically cut the entire loop with the size of the first cut (eg. all 8th or all 16th), then you save regions and import on EXS using "import multiple samples" and automatically map on each key.

That's a great idea! Just trying that out now.... loads of possibilities there. When you do it that way, does the EXS automatically apply fades to the files or should you do that in advance?

you can play with envelopes on amplitudes in exs if you have some clicks, by the way it will be applied to all slices so if you have bad clicks only on some would be better to do a short fadeout/in only on the problematic ones.

 

I have made also a little ensemble in Reaktor some years ago that does this exact thing in realtime as effect, a good way to try some combinations quickly :) it has also a rude "declicker" option and a reverse+stop option (it's a bram supatrigga controllable emulator basically)
