I am normally a Pro Tools HD12 user, but I am considering getting into Studio One for tracking and editing vocals because of its brilliant Melodyne ARA integration. A practice of mine in Pro Tools is to comp both a lead vocal and doubled vocal from the same set of Pro Tools "playlists," which are like Studio One's layers. I will always drag an audio clip from my takes in the "playlists" up to the main playlist of an audio track rather than copy it so I can see what clips I have already used and make sure not to use the same section of a take when comping my doubled vocal.
In Studio One, I see there is a good method for comping using layers; however, the layers do not behave similarly to audio tracks as playlists do in Pro Tools (you cannot cut and drag audio clips in one layer to another layer or track - only highlighting a layer promotes a section of a layer to the main layer.) When a comped take is completed, is there a way to pull audio clips from the same layers to another track and eliminate clips that have already been used in the main layer?
Thanks in advance, I hope this is comprehensible!
