Trigger in Flexi so sample keeps playing when transport is stopped

edited September 2021 in How to's

Sorry, I think the thread title is a fail.

I have a long tailed hit in Flexi and would like it to keep playing when I hit stop at the end of the song. Unfortunately no matter what mode Flexi playback is or how long the fade out the sample stops playing as soon as I hit stop.

Any idea how I could make it work other than slapping a long reverb on it?



  • The only ‘transport independent’ playback in Flexi is the scratch mode, you may try to create a modulation that would run through the sample post stop.

    Alternatively to workaround this type of things I usually keep an empty pattern in the chain to get all the tails I need.

    Also Sampler module with ‘inf’ release will finish the sample regardless of the transport state.

  • Ok, thanks.

    Sampler module sounds like the ticket.

  • Looks like a design decision. I often voted for options in the header menu, and "Stop when transport stops" could be one if them.

    Maybe just make an empty pattern and switch to that pattern rather than hitting stop right away?

  • Yes, @rec has suggested that but seems like a bit of an overkill. Sampler module with infinite release solves it. Thanks
