Hi, when I load a drumloop in Mulab it is stretched or shrunk to the size of one measure ( I do not know if that is the right word in English: I mean the size of four quarter notes).
This results in a audio track, when I copy this a number of times, that has silences between the loops or a track that has the hickups.
Is there a way to disable this snapping to the underlying structure?
Thanks in advance,

Rob

Ok this sounds like you imported a sliced sample loop.
So this results in a sequence part targetting a MultiSampla with the slices.
This results in a audio track,
Oops, so here i'm confused by your post.
Are you importing an audio part or a sliced sample part?
The difference can be easily seen: An audio part is drawn as a waveform, a sequence part shows the notes in the sequence, in this case this is most typically a diagonal set of notes playing the slices.

Moving and copying parts is always done using the grid. You can quickly disable the grid via the green LED in the grid control panel at the bottom right of the composer.

Thanks, I will try looking for the green Led.
I imported the Loop as an audio file - so, not a sliced one.

Just for your info: If you want to match your loop to the tempo, and be able to easily reuse the separate slices in a drumloop, use Session menu -> Import Sample Loop, cfr http://www.mutools.com/mulab/docs/slici ... mples.html

Thanks again,

Deselecting the grid snap already worked fine, but I will certainly try the Import Sample Loop option and see how that works.
EDIT: I used it and it works like a charm.
Thank you for pointing me to that solution..
