set clip loop_start or loop_end to negative number?

February 12, 2012 | 5:24 pm

Why can’t I set either of these to be earlier than 1.1.1?

I get an ‘invalid syntax’ error

Surely this can’t be a restriction…

Try setting the 1.1.1 within you clip to somewhere in the middle of your clip so that there’s audio outside of the loop brace…

The whole setting of loop_start and loop_end is fraught with problems…

Hi S4racen, thanks for the tip.

I mean though that I’m unable to move the loop before 1.1.1, when 1.1.1 is somewhere in the middle of the audio. I often have 1.1.1 set to somewhere in the middle, eg when there is a beatless intro to a track.
