    Default How to chop one long file of samples (hits/stabs)?

    I bought a sample track from Beatport (Peabirds "Hits and Stabs") it's a 4 minute track full of hits. I'm looking for a quick way to chop up the track into it's individual hits. I managed to chop the entire track in Maschine but I wasn't able to save more then 16 slices at a time (there was over 300 slices). What do you guys recommend for chopping this up so I can throw the individual samples into my Maschine library?

    If u have traktor, u can always throw loops into the sample deck slots to save as wav files.

    Or audacity can do it outside of traktor

    But both are manual so im not sure this will work for what ur trying to do. Theres autosplitting apps out there where you can define length of time to chop tracks into smaller mp3 files/ wav file but not sure on quality of output

    I always use Garage Band, you can pick really precise points and split tracks in a bunch of spots.

    Audacity is good as well. It's a freeware program. Just select each stab at a time, an click export selection to WAV.
