Maschine Drag and Drop audio file length

Hi,

I am trying to find where I can set up the lenght of the Maschine drag and drop wave file?

If i try to user the drag audio into my daw, I get some silly size, like 6 bars.

(with like 5 bars of silence behind the file)

That is even if i have short loop in Maschine. (1 bar)

Is there some audio drag and drop setting that I'm missing?


Kind regards

    It uses the audio export settings. Switch to loop optimize if you want to keep the length short

    Maschine's exports attempt to export ALL audio. If you have some sort of reverb or lofi effect that has a tail or a noise floor that's not literal silence; it's going to try to capture it until literal silence.

    (caveat: I've not used it on my computer in a while; so not sure if they've addressed it)

    I used to put a gate on my master bus when exporting just so I don't end up with an extra 40 bars of nothing. The same thing likely applies here.

    Thanks for your reply.

    That one is fine, what I meant is the extra silence after you drag the audio export file from the... pattern editor
