I'm needing to loop some of the VSL samples in Opus 1 (the perf leg violons), and I'm having a hard time getting good results. I'm using Sound Forge to do the looping, but no matter how nearly perfect my end/start points are, I continue to get a pop -- everytime. And crossfading doesn't help because rather than a pop, I get an almost more noticeable attenutation. I've taken the samples down to mono and still I can't get a loop without artifacts. Arhggg!
Sound Forge's crossfade seems very rudimentary, but I don't know how it is in other programs. I used to be able to loop on an Akai s5000 and make perfect loops in sustain samples -- mostly by using its very good crossfade.
Anyone have any tips for looping/crossfading in Sound Forge? Or other programs?
