Wow… a Just Blaze lesson? Big ups to Blaze for being humble enough to share some knowledge. I have a whole new respect for the guy. This is what its about.

That seems a little tedious to me.i like chopping samples in pro tools better.

Seems like a lot of work for something you could do in Recycle within 2 minutes, or right on an MPC.

But cool nonetheless. I guess I can see how it would be useful if you were working strictly in logic or doing some remix editing.

Can this be down with Logic Express?

yo guys, i just tried this, and slash doesn’t do anything

I even looked up the key commands… there is no “split regions with slash” only “split regions” with locators or playhead

you can also cut the samples up quick using a function called “Strip to Silence” then convert to new regions, import to EXS.

Great video though

that’s because it’s not slash.

you need to hold down the apple key and hit \

You could definitely see your enthusiasm within the work you write.
The world hopes for even more passionate writers like you who aren’t afraid to mention how they believe.
At all times go after your heart.
