hi there, i got my maschine at the weekend and very pleased with it so far. lots of fun. one thing that's frustrating me a bit is i can't figure out how to quickly truncate the sound of a sample playing. i mainly program in step mode so far, lets say i find a nice snare hit i want to use but the sample has quite a long reverb tail, i want to be able to shorten the length of the sound so that it fits in with my pattern. how do i do this on the fly (whilst the pattern is playing)? also, is there a way to make samples trigger based on note length? ie a 32nd note will be short sounding and an 8th would play a longer part of the sound? at the moment, the note on just triggers the full sample regardless. i'm talking about 'one shot' samples here - not the instrument patches. i'm sure i'm just overlooking something quite simple. your help appreciated.
