Looper: extract separate takes

Hi there, It'd be great if I could extract all loops I've recorded into Looper as separate clips. Currently overdubbing merges all audio into one clip. This makes editing / fixing things impossible. I understand Looper is more of a live performance / improvisation tool but it'd be great to use it fo...

Re: How do I control Ableton Live with my guitar pedal?

I've just tried using my Korg AX300G to control Looper effect in Ableton. Here's what I've discovered (with some issues) There is a way to configure each pedal to send a specific CC MIDI message. See "CONTROL CHANGE (GLOBAL “CCHG I/O”)" and other surrounding sections in the manual: http://www.korg.c...

Actually we're using laptops with no built-in MIDI ports. Can this be done with USB cables somehow?

MIDI jamming

Hi there, I was wondering if there was a way to hook up several computers running Ableton Live together for live jamming. E.g. I want to invite 2 more people into a jam session. One person will be responsible for drum & bass sounds, the next one will provide pads and riffs, and the 3rd person will d...

List of all external plugins

It would be great to get the distinct list of all external plugins (AU, VST, etc) used in the currently loaded project. This way I can send it to someone who's going to collaborate with me on the project and he'll have time to prepare his environment.

Export Audio/Video Screen: Remaining/Elapsed Time indicators

It'd be useful if the Export Audio/Video window showed how long it's been running and how much longer until it finishes. I often render large DJ sets (2 hrs) and I need to estimate how soon it'll be done.

Find clip by name

Hi there,

My DJ set is getting big and it'd be great if I could do a search for a song/clip in the session view by the clip's name.

Thanks.

Song Details / Info

It would be nice to have a place to write notes/comments about a song I'm working on. Right now I'm using Mac's Stickies or create a MS Word document for each song saying, e.g. "In this song I'm trying to reproduce analog sound of 1999 hip hop hit....blah blah" Just some general text. I now have a l...

Start playing clip a bit earlier

Hi there, I have a vocal audio clip which when triggered (e.g. by triggering the next scene) needs to start playing a quarter note before the start of the measure. E.g. consider these lyrics: "My body aches" vs " 'Cuz my body aches" In both cases, the "my .." starts at the first downbeat of the meas...

Re: Slow startup 8.2.1

That's it, except I have MPK49. Not sure how to fix it permanently but when it's not plugged in, the startup is quick. Guess I'll just unplug/plug each time.

Thanks.

I didn't customize much in the app. It's still using the default initial live set

Re: Slow startup 8.2.1

No, I don't remember ever killing a running/starting Live instance.
This is hard to trace as sometimes I get a fast startup but most of the times it takes 2 minutes or more.

Slow startup 8.2.1

Hi there,

My 8.2.1 Suite takes more than a minute to start. It sits in "Initializing the application" longer than usual.
Is there a way to find out what it's doing?

Thanks.

Make telephone recordings sound better

Hi there, I have some human spoken samples that I want to use in my projects. The problem is they all sound a bit flat and with too much noise because they were originally recorded over the telephone lines, e.g. phone interviews. Can anyone recommend a good way to make the samples sound better? Than...
