RE: solicitation for beat chopping ideas in EDP

Gooooooood Lawd,

Will the chocolatey goodness of Andre's tips ever come to an end?!?!?!

This is almost too much to bear.

I definitely will.  I am working on a mixoff (Big Beat and Rare Groove
genre) and I will put the finished product up and some other interesting
loops that, I'm sure will come up.

Thanks again, this is exactly the kind of info that I was looking for.

<Bouncing giddily down to the "Lab" with visions of insert fairies in my

The reason that these are such great tips, is that they are practical use
case examples.  The edp manual has a wealth of knowledge, but if you can't
apply it practically, you are struggling and discovering by accident (Which
isn't bad, just a longer road).

I resolve to post any useful use-case examples that I stumble across.

Hey there Dylan,

No apology necessary; glad it's useful.

Here's a couple of additional variations you can try, using the same EDP
setup/approach I detailed in the last post:

(with insertmode=insert)

-- Try sticking cycles of complete silence in between drumbeats, by
hitting "insert" right before the next cycle, and then hitting it again
to close the cycle.  (Kind of hard to describe, but try it and you'll
see what I mean.)

(with insertmode=REPLACE)

-- Use the insert button to completely replace the audio of a given
cycle with whatever's coming into the EDP at the time of the insertion.
That could be silence, could be another drumbeat, could be one cycle of
turntable noise, whatever...

So which one of 439 different beats is going to time-travel back to
share a slot in one of those 438 EDP sessions?!  ;)

If you can, please post some of the results of your experiments with
this... I'm curious to hear it.

C ya,
