  1. That's a useful shortcut, and I think it does it without losing the drum pattern placing, which often happens with groove clipping in AD2 Thanks!
  2. Here is a screenshot showing the original clip from AD2, which I pasted after copying, this is what I think caused the echo,, I reckon I will delete it all and redo to see what happens. I like clip looping with the smart tool as you just drag it along to extend the loop but I often find it outs the drums out of their pattern and starts the new looped bit offbeat. Hence I tried copy and paste.
  3. CTRL D? What does it do? Looked but there are endless shortcuts.
  4. Thanks for all of this help, I will work through it all bit by bit now I have some guidance. ( Tomorrow!)
  5. Hi John, thanks, Sorry but how do I get to synth properties? as to the other option, I opened piano roll and dragged a note, but it seems to want drag and draw, when using the "move" cursor or smart tool. So there are of course two notes visible as it has drawn one. Its never done that before, probably yours truly has switched something on or off without meaning to.
  6. No I tried that, still got an echo. Its odd. I can always replace the track but I just wondered what I did wrong inadvertently.
  7. Hi, I am using an AD2 drum clip for a song, I need about 5 minutes. Clip groove looping has proved a bit unreliable, so I tried copy / paste "special" for say 10 reps. to extend the drum track. All fine except now I have an echo on the drums that were pasted in. Any ideas? ( My own view is the little man who lives in my DAW has today decided to annoy me with a new problem, but for a more rational explanation I am sure someone knows what has happened? ) Richie
  8. Yes that's what I am coming round to realise! Its almost instinctive to use the pedal, I even do this when arranging string parts, until I listen to the mushy sound I generated! Translating my music into a digital language after years of an acoustic piano is difficult. But.............. thanks to the kind folks on this forum I am emerging from the primeval swamp ! ☺️ But seriously , thanks for helping out. πŸ‘
  9. Ah ok got that. It seems I fixed it and learnt a lot in 10 minutes, thanks. Would have taken an age otherwise. πŸ‘
  10. Okay got it I think. I put the value for 127 to zero, and this deleted the command. Clumsy but it worked. Still don't know how I managed to do this error in the first place, maybe from my keyboard pedal? Anyhow I got there with your help thanks. Now I know what the event viewer does!
  11. Thanks. I can see it in the events list ( never used this view till now!) and it is highlighted in orange, don't know what the significance of that is.
  12. I'm trying to sort this while I wait for help from someone who knows what they are doing, I kept looking for a reason, and now I can see what looks like a big endless block of sustain, again see image. So assuming this is the problem, my next question is; 1. How on earth did I manage to do that? 2. How do i delete it?
  13. Hi all, I am busy with a song with Spitfire Audio Orchestral strings playing, and I have split the track, and deleted the end section, as it didn't work, but the strings are still playing.(endlessly) I've done a screen shot, anyone know what todays ***** up is by yours truly? How do I shut it up? Thanks.
  14. Thanks, I just upgraded to Melodyne 5 assistant, maybe it dint work on this track or others i'll check. All new to me.
  15. I either press Ctrl M or load it in the FX part of the track. But to be honest I have little real knowledge of what the difference is! I think when it is Ctrl M it does a similar thing to the "create region FX", and is preferable as it updates melodyne when the track changes. So, it seems the best way is to bypass the region FX as this is the non destructive method. Steep learning curve for me but my vocals are poor so I need to prioritise my learning of Melodyne! Thanks again.
  16. Okay, had an exhaustive look, and I think its a Melodyne problem with the upgrade. But my new tracks work fine when I open Melodyne 5, so I am simply going to move on, this problem track was mixed down anyway and I'll just accept the mix. I simply haven't the time to figure out what went wrong, but if it happens again obvs I will have no choice but to investigate. Its not ideal but I am so short of time i cant be going down these rabbit holes when I hit a glitch, and not writing or recording anything! I couldnt figure out how to delete melodyne from a track retrospectively, how is this done?
  17. Thanks for the pointers. I'll look at this tomorrow as its New year's Eve. But yes I agree, something is wrong and the problem now points to melodyne.
  18. Nope its okay on another blank track, Melodyne seems normal. .. back to the drawing board as to why its greyed out on the problem song
  19. Okay, working through the replies and suggestions; 1. Yes the master bus shows an audio signal. 2. The instances of melodyne show vocals, however the red and yellow "blobs" are greyed out. I'm thinking something went wrong with my upgrade to melodyne 5.1 yesterday and its effected the vocals. see screenshot. I will now try to look further into this.
  20. Hi all, Just when I thought it was safe to get back into the water and do some work without pleading for help from the forum yet again, disaster. Opened up the track ( see screenshot) and all of the vocals will not give a sound. Signal is there as can be seen, but in terms of sound output, nothing, zilch, nada. Obviously I have used melodyne and vocal thickening, but none of the tracks emits a squeak. Solo them all one by one and still nothing. Checked the buses etc. Everything was fine last time I worked on the track. I'm baffled. It seems every time this forum helps me out and I move on, another weird problem turns up out of the blue? I dont think I have done anything, never mind anything wrong, I simply closed the project and opened it again. Its the same for my three saved earlier versions. AAAAAGGGHHH! help appreciated....
