Default Re: Comping Guitar?

1. do you have a control surface?

2. it sounds like you recorded into playlists...

In any event, comping really requires a control surface, since there's no other way to instantly mute/unmute various tracks.

Yeah, there are workarounds, but the way to do it is to line 'em up, and mute/unmute as you go. Make your choices, drag to a new track, crossfade to taste and there you go.

Without a control surface, you have to make your choices, put the comp together, listen, repeat. A box of faders/mutes will cut your time required in half (or more).
