How to work with samples that have pre-attack sound
Sorry if this is a solved problem, but it’s been bugging me all the way from Live and now in BM3.
I record myself playing guitar and singing mostly, and when I do a simple loop treatment on the samples, I end up cutting off important stuff like vocal breath sounds, part of guitar attack and things like that.
The workflow I have now is to try to start my samples one beat early, but it’s tedious to arrange and doesn’t really work that great with patterns and scenes in general, managing that extra beat for loops for instance.
Anyone have any hints on how to best work with things like that? I’m using BM3 a lot like a tape recorder sketch pad, so I’m using it quite a bit like a DAW, but trying to make use of patterns and scenes to try ideas.
Curious if there’s anything like the snap marker in Reaper, it lets you put a marker on your clip for where you want it to snap to beats, which worked great for having some audio pre and post the main part of the clip.
Hope it made some sense, i’d be grateful for any tips!
