Soundtrack playlist handling

Sorry if this seems like a very noob question, but I really can’t work out the best way of handling a playlist of music tracks.

What I mean is that I want to use a multi-instrument to put several tracks into to be randomly selected but they’re different lengths so the loop region either cuts longer songs off or leaves silence at the end of shorter tracks. I’m sure there’s a really basic tool somewhere for this but I just can’t find it!

Also, whilst I have your ear, would using ADSHR be the best way to smooth between tracks?

Thanks in advance guys :slight_smile:

Set the Multi Instrument to Async and enable the “Loop Playlist” button:


For each single instrument in the Playlist, add an AHDSR modulator to the volume setting:

Add a loop region to the Multi Instrument in the Timeline:


That should be it. Naturally it won’t crossfade, but you have got smooth fade in/out with this method.

Thank you so much for a quick response. This is exactly what I was looking for. It’s been a long time since I did music in Fmod.
