Chapter 8. Basic Audio Editing > Preparing Events for a Comp

Preparing Events for a Comp

A comp can be created from many sources. For example, a single long take can be cut into pieces for comping. Events or regions created with cycle recording are also very common sources. Comps can also be created out of completely unrelated and distinct pieces of audio, although this is not a common practice. In the task here, a longer event was snipped into two-bar loops and will be comped from these pieces. You will get the events ready for comping.

To arrange events for comping in the Audio Part editor

1.
Set the start and end points for the loop so they correspond to the length of the section to be comped. In this case, set a two-bar loop (Figure 8.56).

Figure 8.56. A two-bar loop, from measures 9 to 11, is set in the Audio Part editor.


2.
On the Transport bar, click the Cycle button to turn on looping.

3.
Drag all of the events that will be used into the range of the loop (Figure 8.57).

Figure 8.57. Each of these events has been created from a longer take by using the Split tool.


This puts together all of the constituent events that will be used to create the comp.
