Re: Mobius technique question



Thanks Per,

Looking at the Startpoint info it seems like that could work.  Do you know if there is a way to reset it to the original location after one has shuffled things around (other than Undo I suppose).  Also, would you recommend this over the Slip function and if so, why?  I'm just asking as I'm sure I'll try both to see how it feels.  I'm just worried that using startpoint I'm likely to get things far away from where I'd like them to be (or maybe not).

Hi Kevin,

The commando for that is called "Startpoint". Assign a key or switch
to Startpoint and hit it to set a new startpoint for the selected loop
(several loops can be selected by using Focus Lock or Group, but if
you want use it on multiple loops/tracks in one go you must make sure
Startpoint is in the right column for Focus Lock Functions at the
"Configuration/Global Parameters/Functions" window. There are two
columns; one for the commands that won't be affected by Focus Lock or
Group and one that will be affected).

If you should find that adjusting the startpoint of som loops isn't a
good remedy for curing a too static feel you might want to try a
different approach for organic sounding loops: simply make several
parallel loops and keep the at different length! Then the accents
between the loops' interplay will wander around and what can be more
organic than walking accents! :-)

Till now you seriously considered yourself to be the body and to have a
form. That is the primal ignorance which is the root cause of all trouble.
