EcolooP Tutorial 1 : How use template to quickly create slice and import midi template in cubase

     For this tutorial, you need to download the EcolooPStartKit for have the midi templates presets and import the midi files in your DAW. For example, we have use Cubase, a host that adapts well enough EcolooP. We have captured image from the Studio 5 version of Cubase but I think that the newer version work well with it !

     If you haven't Cubase but another Sequencer compatible with EcolooP, there's no problem ! This tutorial will inspire you to adapt it to your favorite sequencer.

Here is Host list which having favorably met the expectations of EcolooP (Start and use) :

_ Steinberg Cubase 
_ Fruity Loop 
_ SaviHost 
_ VSTHost 
_ Bidule Plogue (It's better to deactivate the audio engine before the load of EcolooP)
_ Sensomusic Usine 
_ Cockos Reaper 
_ Ableton Live 
_ Synthedit 1.1 et 1.2 
_ Mulab 
_ Orion 
_ Toby bear minihost

It's not an exhaustive list and don't hesitate to use it with another Host. (maybe let a message for confirm that this application is compatible with another one)

press the 'Update Eco Sample' button with unlock padlock.

8. Don't forget to to activate the midi file player :

9. And click to the Gate sample on/off for start the sliced sound :

10. By this process, you can hear the differents parts of the sound by playing in your midi keyboard or recontruct it in your midi
sequencer. Every sliced parts correspond to a midi note !

You must put a new slice after the creation of the template (that you can delete after) or move slightly a existent slice for save correctly the preset in a .fxp file...
