At the beginning of this chapter, I showed you how to import pre- record audio files…into Sonar, and the example that we used…were these two drum parts that we brought in.…We have a intro, and a verse.…And I also ended up making copies of the verse bar because…it wasn't long enough for the guitar and bass parts that I recorded.…Now if you have an audio clip that you…using over and over again, and which flows repeatedly into…itself, meaning for example, how this drum part can…basically loop seamlessly from the end back to the beginning.…You can turn your audio clip into what's called…a Groove Clip.…Groove Clips are short audio clips that are designed…to be repeated or looped over and over again.…
When you turn a regular audio clip into a Groove Clip, you're also making it…so that the clip will automatically conform…to the project's tempo and even the key.…So if you slowed down or speed up the…song, the Groove Clip will change along with it.…So let's use a strums verse audio clip and see how to turn it into a groove clip.…
