SmileHI Guy's Smile

I have a kick drum loop that is one bar of 4 and is 1234,  the song I am working starts on the 1st beat of the bar but the vocals come  in at 7 8,  or if you like,  15 16 specifically in this songs case. So  essentially it is  3 4/1234/1234/ How do I get the kick drum to come in on beats 3 4 or 7 8 and not on beats 1 2  or 5 6 as it sounds out of time in this way?  I hope I have made myself clearSmile Thank you in advance SmileSmile

Make a new clip and place the kick on the 3 and the 4, with nothing on the one and the two.  Is that what you mean?  Or do you want the bars (ie. at the top of the screen where the play head is) to start on 3, cause that is impossible.  

Try starting a few bars over, perhaps on the 4th or 8th bar and place the vocals so that it starts on the first downbeat, then place your kick around that.

Hope that helps.
