I could not drag and drop the cut up sections into Structure Free. So, I renamed all the cutup sections. Each I gave a separate number from 1, 2, 3, ……. etc. Then, I just switched various numbers around to create various sounds. But, I did not like the process. I'll just stick with loops and creating my own original rhythms, instead of chopping up someone else's loop to create something original. My original thinking has proven to be better. I found that adding different instrument loops at different measures and at different intervals of measures does all that you will ever need to do.

TopTenOnEverything says:

Pro Tools has updated so you can't drag and drop so how do you do it now?

John Bennett says:

for some reason, it will not click and drag to drop into structure free.. something im doing wrong?

Adam Warlock says:

It's all about how you slice them, if the actual note is longer than the note you're playing, you'll need to go back into the midi editor and extend them. There may be a quicker way, but not one that I know of.

Cody Pauly says:

Hey, this is probably a really simple fix but I loaded my own drum samples into Structure Free, and I want the drums to ring out without me having to keep holding down the key on my keyboard controller. How do I get the entire sample to play without holding down the key?

Alfredo Fuentes II says:

When in doubt tap the tempo out

Groove3 says:

Could be several things. Make sure your beat is in time to the grid. Did you cut them on the grid?

proboss100 says:

when you do that in structure it dont play the hits in time and some times the sampels dont play the way you chop them
how come ???
