Duplicate clips on grid.

Recommended Posts

Same as Pro Tools or Cubase pressing ctrl-D selecting a clip, duplicate it. Perfect to make Audio or Midi loops without drag and drop. Please!

Do you mean "shared duplicates" or just duplicates.

If it is just duplicates, this can be done by converting the clip to a groove clip in the inspector, then you can drag it across and it repeats itself. Or you can just select the clip and then right click and in the menu select "Groove clip looping".

For MIDI have you tried the pattern tool? You can essentially select a MIDI clip and "paint" it inside the piano roll view to roll out the data on the timeline.

It's a reasonable request however.

There are forms to do it like you are saying, but the “ctrl - D” shortcut option, chosing a clip with a grid lenght ( pro tools duplicate too the spaces between clips if you select a bunch of  them In a grid) is really fast and inmediate. Hope that it is not a difficult implementation in our Cakewalk.

Try "Groove Clips" for Midi and Audio loops.. Is the best manner (i try duplicate in Pro Tools and Studio One. 

 

Or you can copy and paste (special past pressing ctrl, alt and "V" an make the paste 50 times for example in the dialog box..

This is how I've always done it.

That's also a nice option that I use regularly, but a Live-style CTRL+D duplication would be even faster. 😉
