    Hey guys. I was just wondering what kind of different techniques you use for cuting up breaks. I usually just cut them by hand in Goldwave. Works well but maybe there's a better way...
    :D

    recycle, or if your can get it, phatmatikpro..
    it's like recycle as a vsti/aunit... made flex on per slice options, can run 16 instances. load a break, set your sensitivity, and drag the midi icon into logic, cubase, ect....

    I just chop them up by hand in Soundforge and create a useable drum kit from all the hits....
    Do a bit of processing to tidy up the individual hits and you're away.

    Personally i'm not too keen on re-cycle...i like to create breaks how i want them to sound and not have something based on a pre-determined rex/groove template.....where's the fun in that?
