I'm trying to remix a song, and I've cut an audio event (referencing its own clip) into slices. Is there a way to use these slices to make a rhythmic beat, as if each slice were a drum pad (other than manually copying and pasting events)?

    Well, yes - this is one of the core functions of a DAW, or various other tools which let you add repeats etc.

  • @DrMayhem That's not what I meant; rather than duplicating each syllable every time I wanted to use it again, I'd use them as...er...samples.

  • I was hoping that was what you meant:-) Yes, why not just use them as samples :-)

    @DrMayhem Maybe he doesn't know how to use them as samples. That's kinda his question. Apr 19, 2014 at 2:22

I figured it out! While using Groove Agent SE, you can just drag the audio parts or slices you want onto the pad you want them on; then you can just "Create Drum Map From Instrument" and then edit the drum part in the drum editor thing like normal.
