Loops and Trigger Finger Pro

Can I import a backing track lasting about 3 minutes into trigger finger pro using airdrums? More specifically, I know I can drag and drop an audio file, but I want to hit the pad and have the whole piece play without having to keep my finger there. Does that work?

Also, I have a four bar loop I'd like to import, and I would like it to loop. I suppose I could create a 4 bar sequence and trigger it at the start of the four bars, but again, I'd have problems with the loop stopping when I removed my finger from the pad...

Anybody got any insight?

  • Hi Richard,

    Thanks for posting!

    Any sample you import into AIR Drums will start playing from start to end as long as the Play Mode is set to "One Shot" under the Pad FX section. With that being said though, samples will be limited to the "Hold" and "Release" settings which will get you about 32 seconds before the sample will be released. So, I'm not sure that this will work the way you'd like.

    With that being said, these are limitations of the AIR Drums plugin, which just wasn't built to do things like that. If you have a different VST plugin that will work better for this, you could always use that instead.

    Let me know if you have any questions!

  • if you run arsenal in apple's mainstage as a plugin, in mainstage you can create 'note on' buttons and assign them to each pad of the tfp to hold the pad down. this keeps the loop going. but the only way i've found to stop the loop is hitting a midi panic button in mainstage with my mouse, or hitting the pad on the tfp itself
