Guys, I need your expertise here.
Why is it that if I load a sample (let's say, a vocal of 1,5 secs) in the NNXT, the length of the sample shortens and lengthens when I play the higher and lower keys?
Is it possible to keep the length of the sample (rootnote C3) eventhough I play other keys?
I tried timestretching (loading sample in audiochannel), but so far I am unsuccessfull.
If I shorten the audiosample, the sound also pitches up.
Where am I going wrong?
Enlighten me pls!

Cause it just plays the sample slower or faster depending on the input pitch?

I dont think it's possible to keep the length straight in nnxt. To do that i think you need to manually stretch and transpose the samples accordingly and then load them all in and select all samples and then "set zones chromatically"

You can have the loop repeat or add some delay or sustain to it but as Os says the loop will alone play as long as it is.
