Creating Groove Clips

As if it weren't enough that SONAR 3 lets you manipulate the space-time continuum, the Loop Construction view also lets you turn ordinary, run-of-the-mill audio clips into groove clips. (Okay, Einstein, that bit about space-time is a little overstated, but the control SONAR gives you over pitch and time is nothing short of magic!) In the steps that follow, you'll take a regular audio clip and enable it to follow your project's tempo and pitch changes.

Enabling Looping

When you enable looping in a clip, SONAR does two things. First, it allows you to "roll out" the clip in a track so it repeats itself as we did in Chapter 6. Second, it uses information you provide about the number of beats in the clip to adjust the playback speed of the clip to the project tempo. The following steps show you how to turn looping on and provide the info SONAR needs to change the clip's tempo.
