Re: Fw: Drum'n Bass questions - Amen

hi esteban

Amen is a little prog, really nice to create some original ONE bar breaks,
not to sequence a whole tune... ;)

try this: convert the file in mono using Soundforge (or any other editor),
edit the loop in Amen and then import it in Acid to work on the song 
Acid loops usually are .wav 16 bit stereo.

If you have Acid I suggest to use this incredible app only, and forget 
Amen. A little plug here: I just uploaded a tune created with Acid too. In
particular, all the drum programming is done using Acid. No Amen involved
there, but you can splice and re-edit really well in Acid (a lto better 
Amen, I'd say...) 
Check it out on ftp.teklab.com/teklab/incoming. The file is
LeoCavalloREMIX.zip (including the mp3 and a txt).

sequencing?  My experience thus far has been that if you're going to create
say, a 16-bar sequence, the "offsets" become so tiny that it's almost
impossible to work with them.  Do a whole tune, and they would be
microscopic.  Can anyone tell me what I'm missing here?

not in "16-bit mono .wav file format".  Is there a way to convert ACID 
(which as far as I know are indeed .wav files, though they are stereo, and 
don't know how many bits) to 16-bit mono .wav format?
