Discard unused slices.

Hi

What's the most efficient way of discarding a sample just keeping the unused slices so I can save memory.
Let's say I have one sample sliced into 6 pads, and half the sample I'm not using for anything.

Thanks...

What are Geist's default cc values?

Hello I've worked out how to do MIDI learn from the mapping panel within Geist.
Please note I'm also using a Maschine studio template which I downloaded from this site.
Anyway this method works.


So now...

Rather than do it at the Geist end, I now want to do it at the Maschine studio end (with it's template)...
So I need to assign Geists default cc values to the Maschine template.
Where/how do I find out these values so I can map the Maschine template?

Thanks...


(ps Now finished the manual, so looking like I won't be posting so many threads, thanks for responses so far).

If you load a sample to 6 pads, its still only in memory once. There isn't a way of removing part of a sample from memory

Thanks. Example here..

I Ioad a huge sample and slice a tiny fraction of it.
I still have the huge sample in memory?
Enhancement request here maybe?

Thanks...

Unless its a truly crazy sample, you are only taking about a few mb per sample, its unlikely you will see any major improvements by removing the unused data. However, you would loose the ability to move any end markers beyond the position you originally placed them, because that audio data would no longer exists in memory.

Exactly what I want, wanting to export this to give to somebody else a don't want them to muck around with it. Also when I'm done with it, this would be like signing off.. For instance I might be chopping an entire song...Cheers..
