True or false, reason's groove extract doesn't understand odd time signatures? Or is there a trick (I've never tried to get a groove from an odd time sig rex before :frown: )

I've not really done this but I would assume you would need to have the Seq showing the correct (matching) Time Signature e.g. 12/8 before you run the extract groove function or it will try to jam it into 4/4.

Good call, but I already did that :D  

LSS, I bought the new "Aaron Comess" loop loft thing because the grooves just sound delish (and they are) but there is the "3/4" stuff (which I didn't expect) and it doesn't really match up. Then it dawned on me, I've never tried it so I don't really know if it's me or reason. Google found nothing for what I was feeding it.

I do use odd signatures occasionally. Never tried to extract grooves there, but I can tell you that Reason's click doesn't understand odd time signatures. Not that 3/4 is particularly odd... But I wouldn't be too surprised if there were difficulties extracting odd meter grooves, since mist music today is actually in 4/4...

I can't edit the title to solved but this looks to be.

And you'll NEVER guess who's to blame :evil: :mrgreen:

It's embarrassing, but I'm still learning.

First, do the anti-dumbass thing and don't have the clip you are getting the groove from be 3 bars in 3/4 :lol: That's gonna be a problem. Second, after figuring that out, make sure the clip you are getting the groove from is properly stretched so that when you extract, reason has a way of remembering exactly what you want.

As far as the click mentioned before, I'll play around with it here in a few after a cup o' joe. I'm not a really big time/sig guy.
