Up vote for me. This is something I've been meaning to request, but I didn't know if that feature has a specific name for all other daws or it has a unique name. I was blown away the first time I did that in Reaper a few years ago. I imagine it could work out so much better in Studio One if you were to transform a track leaving the tail, slide the tail back and use that loop function for drums or synths that carry out through the whole song and at the end bring the tail out.
Don't get me wrong hitting D is quick for duplicating, but spanning a loop out by dragging the end of the clip is even quicker.
Wouldn't it be better to implement something like the brush tool in FL Studio? It paints the last clicked thing. So if you click a MIDI clip and click-swipe, you would get a series of shared copies of that clip.
Then right-click swipe would delete many clips with a single swipe, as per this other FR: Smarter Right-click and Middle-click.
I second Scoox's solution! I like the functionality of other DAWs, but their implementation isn't very intuitive. I demoed FL Studio before switching to Studio One and I found their brush tool to be one of the best features they have. They also let you do it in the Piano Roll which is FREAKING BRILLIANT! If you want 4 bars of 16th notes, it's SO easy to get it. No copy pasting, no tediousness. You click > you drag > magic happens! :)
Sorry for all the exclamations. But seriously, there's no better tool than that brush. Genius! GENIUS I tell you!!! lol
More than the drag, I especially want Logic's "The region loops continuously until the start of the next region in the track" feature.
What a disappointment! I've been trying about 10 DAWs and none of them does it the way Logic was already doing it in 1995. Incredibly, I can't find ANY major DAW under Windows that has both that and the alias/ghost/duplicate clip feature, another essential feature! Make multiple ghost/aliases of a sequence, loop them, move each loop as a single unit, set different number of repeats for each...
I just installed the trial version of Studio One, and I like very much what I see, it's at the top of my list with Cubase. But both don't have this basic but incredibly useful feature.
I'm uninstalling Studio One right after that, and will probably finally settle for Mulab (its loop thing not as good as Logic, but it does work!). I'm also seriously thinking of getting a Mac again just for Logic, after more than 20 years on Windows...
Hi - I just started with Studio One 4 a few hours ago (I'm impressed so far!) and this is the first thing I couldn't figure out: how to loop a region like I can in Logic.
No amount of region duplication achieves the same thing because any change to the original (e.g. remove one midi snare hit) means you then have to delete all of the existing duplicates and then re-duplicate exactly the same regions without ******** up. For hip hop / EDM where beats tend to repeat heavily it seems like the only sensible method.
Any alternative / suggestions on workflow v welcome, but as a Logic user I'd love to see this feature.
