I would like to use grooves, but modify each one

Postby Ty Ford » Sun Jun 21, 2015 2:34 pm

What's the best way to do this.

Right now if I slide grooves in place and add, subtract or move a hit. The change affects everything in that groove. If I use the groove in different places, I don't always want the change in every place.

Is there a "save as" function so that I can use the same groove, but modify each one slightly to fitted song?

BTW, I just had some feedback from ReverbNation complimenting me on my "drummer" and his drums. It was a song I created with BFD2. Ha!

Simply use the groove editor in BFD3, (right click) copy the selected groove to another slot and then edit... or drag/drop the groove into your host (DAW), duplicate as many times as you wish and continue edits there in its MIDI Editor.
