Hi All,

thanks again for the great support provided on this forum.

I would highly appreciate an advise where to find tutorials or videos for the loops recording on internal sequencer; and how to arrange the loops along of the track.

I’m not sure what you are asking for. Perhaps these will help:

Thanks 5pinDIN, second link was very helpful.

I would like to create at least some portion of drums without build-in arpeggio by recording loops and pasting in required location. Is it possible to copy/paste in song or pattern mode?

Of course =D Take a look at the JOB button for SONG/PATTERN and also read those articles:

Thanks Bad_Master! That one has actual X0A file included, very handy!

Just a side note - apparently sequencer on XF is very similar to XS.
Actually, I assume, I can use pretty much any XS tutorial as for XF. I would ask it other way - would be any difference between XS and XF in functionality as menus, file structure, operation?

while going through tutorials, there is a clip assigned to each key in C3

“ In this case all the notes between C3 and C4 are assigned to Alternate Group #3. Each white key contains an audio clip; each black key is assigned an empty waveform number (silent) and acts as a ‘stop’ key. (See screen shot at right.)”

for some reason, black keys dosen’t stop playback. I tried to re-set a “- - - - - - - “ wave form to black key - nope, still dosen’t. Should I have an actual wave flat form for to do that?
