Count the number of beats in 15 seconds and multiply that figure by 4.

weird, I do the same thing, except I count the beats in 6 seconds and multiply it by 10. got the idea for it at the doctor's office when the nurse was taking my pulse.

Lot of good tips, quite cheap.

I also use this with Logic:


Small but very efficient. Especially when you do a lot of recording. Adjust volumes, mute, solo and arm tracks on the fly. Plus some transport buttons. Time saver! Can recommend anybody to get some kind of a controller with it.

Here's a hotkey configuration I use which is useful at times for chopping samples.

[ = Rewind by Transient
] = Forward By Transient
/ = Slice at Playhead

I find chopping samples in the arrange area and then having them automatically mapped into the ESX24 via the "Command - E" function to be much more efficient then manually assigning samples in the ESX24.
