where do you chop

I've been wondering this all night.

Instead of extracting your regions, why can't you just define the regions by where they start & stop and assign a midi note to them? It would be useful to have 1 "amen" file w/ regions that could be read by Soundforge, Cubase, or even on a hardware sampler. I got the idea by using an MPC2000XL. I sliced an amen to a program, and sliced another slightly different amen file, but this time saved it as .wav files instead of .snd. I forgot which one was which,and now I have 16-18 files all with the word amen in it(becomes a pain in the ass scrolling past it with the data knob). I was hoping there was a way to define regions or hits within a .wav file without seperating the audio into smaller files so that when you use something like an MPC you change 1 files tempo instead of 8-16 pads under the programs menu.

I have a feeling it exists, but that I'm going about it in the wrong way.
I guess I shouldn't care so much that I have to make individual files out of each region.

What about .rex files?

A rex file is a single file that has your hitpoint data contained.

Also you could just define the hitpoints directly in cubase..its no slouce in that area...

I'll bet you can't do it for an MPC, even if you could define the notes by region, the sampler has to have a way of being able to read that data. I've definied loops in Sound Forge, but some of my gear doesn't recognize the loop start and end points so it just plays it as a 1 shot and I have to manually reset the points on the sampler. If the OS of the sampler doesn't read that data it doesn't know what to do with it. The only way to do it I know of so far is a rex as everyone's said. I have to do the same thing, extract all the regions and import each file 1 at a time. What you can do to save some time though is build the preset with all the keys mapped out in Kontakt and save it. Covert the Kontakt file to an Akai file in Translator and then import it. You'll at least be able to import it in one shot with all the slices premapped for you. I do this for my E-MU, just convert the files to EOS files burn them to disc and import them as a bank in my E-MU and it's done in one motion. Then if I want new "pre-mapped" presets with maybe different filter settings or controller settings I just copy the preset and adjust it how I want and it's already premapped for me. Saves some time and headaches (actually alot).

Abend, the reason I don't assign midi to the markers is cuz I use buzz tracker.

Another problem I have is when I have a loop in SF in a song with a quantized rhythm (ie electronic music) and I shift or expand the selection using the acid looping tools regardless of how exact I am in setting loop points I find the loop begins to fall out of time the further I shift through the song. My question is, is this caused by my shitty looping skills or is there another possible reason - imperfect bpm, wonky sequencers, etc?
