OK! I've been toying with the idea of getting a Launch Control XL for selecting tracks and having more knobs. Anyone know if this would work with Push. More specifically, if I changed a parameter on the Launch Control XL (like selecting a track) would that change the track selected on Push?

How to change devices quicker?

I'm in device mode on "Track 1" tweaking Freq on Operator. I then want to tweak Freq on Analog on "Track 2". As far as I know I have to press "Track", press the button for the appropriate track, then press device (and then repeat if I want to go back to the original device for tweaking). Is there an...

Re: Some Benefits of Limitations & Rules in the Creative Process

Good videos, thanks for posting. It's so easy to get dragged into all the technology and "how to" and get distracted from creativity. Thought-provoking stuff.

Re: Finishing tracks: Something that helped me

Its a great idea for getting things down i did a similar thing where i told myself i had only an hour to start a track and export it. It helped me get over the "it has to be perfect thing" that is still there but i don't seem to be as precious now. :) Absolutely same for me. Perfection was always m...

Finishing tracks: Something that helped me

I watched this video on TED that presents a very simple, but I think, powerful idea: https://www.ted.com/talks/matt_cutts_try_something_new_for_30_days The idea is you commit to trying something new for 30 days. Seeing as I have finished about 3 tracks in 7 years of on/off music making, I thought I ...

Re: Multi-channel spectrum analyzer.

FWIW, you can use multiple Spectrum devices to see multiple channels with a little trick I learned from another post on this forum. I made a dummy audio track and put two spectrum devices in the chain. In front of each Spectrum I put a Compressor with Sidechain turned on and the Audio From set to t...

Re: Different midi mapping for each track?

Use SelectedTrackControl, a script for live that maps your controller to the currently selected track, among other things. It is a must have. http://stc.wiffbi.com/ Thread here https://forum.ableton.com/viewtopic.php?p=1257042#p1257042 OK, I have fallen at the first hurdle! As reticent as I am to a...

Re: Confidence

Good article, thanks. It's a realisation that has taken me about 4 years to get to! One trap I had fallen into was not being prepared to put anything less than excellent tracks "out there". As I'm a relative newbie (dipping in and out over 4 years) I never put any tracks out (because they weren't ex...

Different midi mapping for each track?

I have set up a track with exactly the midi mapping I want. When I switch tracks the midi mapping still controls just the track that I set up. Is it possible to get the midi mapping to change track by track depending on which track I have selected?

Thanks in advance.
