1. Hi everyone,

    Apple just released Logic Pro 10.5 for MacOS 10.15. We found out that Massive X, Crush Pack, Mod Pack, Replika, and Replika XT will crash.

    Our teams are currently working on a fix, and we hope to have this out to you as soon as we can!

    Best wishes, 
    The NI Team

    I've been watching some traktor videos on dj techtools and one thing I continuously see is them triggering samples quickly in rapid succession.

    I cannot seem to duplicate this. I disabled snap and quantize but the best I can get out of it is on the down beat. I want to be able to stutter the samples, triggering them like say 16th notes, but I cannot figure out how this is done.

    can someone help me out here? thanks!

    There's a LOT of practice required to hit 16th notes consistently (meaning without snap and quantize).

    thanks for the reply, I do understand that but what I am saying is that even with quantize off I cannot trigger the samples that quickly. it will not let me trigger them more than once per beat.

    hi I take it you're using the S4 to do this?
    also are you trying to trigger the samples from the sample decks?

    if so I asked a similar question a couple of weeks ago. from what i understand is, if you what to trigger samples from the sample decks in a sampling stab style - you need to switch the s4 from deck A/B to C/D, (i.e. if triggering from the left sample deck then switch deck a to deck C on the s4) or the only other option is to use an additional midi controller.

    hope this helps

    thanks for your reply, yes this is with S4

    In fact, I tried all THREE of these options. Whether I'm using the extra controls in deck a, the dedicated controls in deck C OR an external MIDI controller (AKAI LPD8) mapped to the sample triggers, it still will not let me stutter the sample triggers, locking me into a beat lock of no less than a single beat.

    are you triggering samples or quick-cues?

    Sorry about the post, I wasn't thinking about what you are actually trying to do. IIRC, the sample playback feature doesn't have the trigger-style mode like you are describing. It is designed to playback in sync with the master clock - not do the "P-P-P-P-Playback" or trigger-style (like with arcade buttons).

    I'm on the fence on the this one.

    Don't they stutter in one-shot mode?

    I am no were near my s4 right now, but I think if playback is stopped for the sample decks, (by switching to deck d/c) then triggered via the que buttons below each sample, you can get the stutters, looped or shot. Not sure but I think I remember this working.

    Hi I believe you're right, found this video on YouTube (sorry it's in german but you'll get the drift)

    It's not crappy is like the cue function works in everywhere. :)

    well i was talking about the retrigger, not the play. i would think that a retrigger would be independent of the play button... but anyway its all good thanks everyone!
