start/stop one shot samples
Just purchased NS2 and need to ask about sample playback in SLATE.
I want to use SLATE as a playable instrument for mediatation sessions . I imported several of my own samples, all one shots into the first row of pads. The one shots I am using are long (1-2 minutes) mediation sounds like bowls and chimes.
I want to be able to start/stop playback of the sounds by tapping to start and then tapping again to stop them randomly to create layered sounds. I was hoping to be able to tap a sample pad to start the playback and then tap it again to stop the payback but I don't see any way to do that. When I tap the second time, it starts the sample playing again. Otherwise I cannot stop the payback until the whole long sample has played back.
The only way I seem to be able to get playback to start/stop before the entire sample has played is to use SUSTAIN mode, hold down the pad and release to stop.I don't want to have to hold down a bunch of pads at the same time, especially if I have 7-10 layered sounds playing at once.
Is there any way to let a one shot sample play and then stop the playback without having to hold it down and release? Maybe SLATE is not able to do what I wanted, but it would be helpful to know so I don't go crazy trying?
Thanks so much for your help!
