    Default How to export quantized samples out of Ableton Live?

    I've chopped samples that I made to use for Remix Deck Sets in Traktor.
    Since some of them still weren't tight enough, I quantized them in Ableton.

    But how do I export these now to new wav files so I can re-select them in Traktor to make a new Remix Deck Sets based on these quantized samples?

    When I drag the clips in Ableton to a folder, I just get the same original sample + .asd file with the Ableton info.
    Recording shouldn't be it either, cause then I'll loose filename info.
    Plus, we're not talking about 1 or 2 samples, but more like remix deck sets, so 64x 3 sets = 192.
    Kinda tedious to export them 1 by 1 > export audio/video > set export settings > name them manually again...

    Anyone went thru this process before?

    I hear ya mate. I made a ton of Remix Sets from old funk drum loops. Lots of warping, and changing up the sample start point.

    That’s where the problems come. When you export a clip, the start market is ignored, and the clip is exported as it appears in the arrangement view. That is, if you shift the start point to mid-clip, the exported clip starts from the beginning of the clip, not the start market.

    The answer is to CONSOLIDATE each clip. The consolidated clips are saved to the Consolidated folder in the Live Project folder. No need to export. They’re saved there automatically when you consolidate them.

    Consolidate = CTRL+J
