need help with track settings

Howdy all,
when i import loops from EZDrummer into my project, it keeps making 2 new tracks everytime! grrh! and it puts the loop in the first one of those 2, so im ending up with heaps of tracks and i cant work out why or how.

i've pretty much had a good ol look through preferences and the like and i cant find anything.
i probably dont know what im looking for, so was wondering does anyone have a clue what the go is here?

there must be a setting on that makes it create a new track everytime i bring in a loop. even if i try to put that loop in one of the previously made "new tracks" it still makes 2 new ones and puts the loop in there.

i've have yelled at the computer, but this doesnt seem to work either, and now i fear repercussions.

You already have re-percussions.

i think the ones you are refering to are, pre(mature)-re- percussions, as i dont think its the computers fault.

hold on, you are talking about EZdrummer arent you? ok, now i get it.

i retract the Percussive statement(ba da boom) and replace it with a,

Is there a setting for creating new tracks when you drag a loop in? It might actually be in the dialog that pops up when you drag in a loop.

I know in Sonar you can set it to create new track, overwrite, merge or whatever.

Also, look for a setting that might be creating individual tracks for stereo loop files that you are dragging in.

draggin them in from EZ you just grab it from the EZ program and dump it in the project, i will have another look now, but yeah i know what you're saying Noize, you'd think there'd be a setting somewhere.
thing is it wasnt doing it on previous projects.

yeeeah!! i nailed it! two words
"auto" "dissolve"
what do they mean???...well, really? i dont know, but that's what it was. turned that baby off and all is good.
I just went through and and unclicked and clicked stuff.
Now that i mention it, i have been through this before, but couldnt remember if it as meant to be on or off.
I hadnt changed/touched it, so i didnt even consider it.
