Rookie - Best Practices

Post by Burn Witch Burn » Sat May 04, 2019 6:47 pm

I'm moving from Ableton (w DMXIS) to Showbuddy w DMXIS. Brand new to SB. Everything's coming together but I thought I'd ask a couple of things here.

1. What's the most efficient/precise method of copy/pasting? For ex., many songs have: Intro / Verse / PreChorus / Chorus/ then it all repeats. I copied and pasted but precise selection was difficult while zoomed out. And it's on the pasting that I miss the grid that most DAWs have. ...and "snap to grid". I have to zoom way in and paste. Is there a better way?

2. Overall workflow: It seems to me that building up a library of individual masked presets (and their corresponding OFF presets) is the way to go. And a batch of stock scenes of both solid colors and rhythmic variations. Plus building a stock of utility presets (blackout, white blinder, strobe, etc).

Am I on the right track or is there a better way?
