Ahh, I see! You can combine regions for that. Select all the regions for
for example 8 bars, and then do right click->edit->combine or something
like that, and it gives you a full combined region for 8 bars. Really handy
when cutting up, doing stutter effects (which I do alot) etc.

Are you talking ardour2 or=

I'm using Ardour 3.I might be using it wrong then - I have a lot of difficult=

Do you have any advice here?=A0Regards,

Hello all,My composition workflow is b=
ased on loops - starting by creating rythms in Hydrogen and recording a few=
drum loops in Ardour, creating a bass line with amSynth or ZynAddSubFX and=
recording a few bass loops in Ardour, recording some guitars in Ardour and=
creating some samples from that...

The difficulty I'm having in Linux is to create com=
position from those loops.In Ardour is is time consuming to reor=
ganise the loops to test new order/composition (because Ardour is not meant=
for that).

My idea of a workflow would be to have a tool to try ou=
t the different loops in different order and "jam" with them to s=
ee what works and what doesn't.
Then once that would be done - I would re-record everything properly i=
n Ardour (drums with multiple tracks, breaks, etc... a more natural way of =
playing, guitar played and not looped, etc)
I have done some research and found "only" 6 tools:- LMMS - it is mentionned several times that it is designed around loop c=
omposition, but I'm not sure about being able to jam with them. (but at=
least being able to compose and move the loops around would be handy)

- Luppp, SooperLooper and FreeWheeling - they more look like software =
version of JamMan to me and meant to be played "live"...- Giada - that's the last one I found, but the website describes a to=
ol more for DJing and looping complete songs instead of actual instrument l=
oops...

- Bitwig - I guess Bitwig will be THE killer tool to work with loops f=
rom what I could tell from the website.....but we are still talking a few m=
onths before general availability...
I admit, I didn't really try these tools - I was hoping if anybody in t=
he community had a similar workflow and could advise in anyway :)Thanks in advance
