72 - CUTTING LOOPS W/OUT RECYCLE        

From: Grimace

This is a tip for everyone who's ever tried to cut up breaks without the aid of recycle or the other programs. The basic idea is get your 4 beat break and cut it into 16 equal parts. If you play them back in sequence it should sound like the original break. Of course then you can rearrange the section giving you crazy cuts, stutters and rerolls. My tip is; when you come to decide the sample length don't try and do it by listening to the sample all the way through and trimming it down to exactly the right length. Instead set up the sequencer so it triggers the sample for 4 beats, once every 4 beats. Do some accurate BPM tweaking on the sequencer and you'll have the beat perfectly looping. Right, grab a calculator. the bpm of the loop/60 = beats per second 1/beats per second = seconds per beat multiply the seconds per beat by your sample rate. (44100 for example) Now you have the number of samples per beat. Multiply this by 4 and you have the exact number of samples in your 4beat break. To do your cutting simply divide the number of samples by 16 and you'll have exactly the right lenth sections. Then simply mix, roll and mash...
