Re: Ableton Live 10 for TV Film Scoring?

I've scored several films in Live 8 - 10. I don't think there are any specific improvements in Live 10 for this type of music, unless the group midi editing function helps you. I've used it for some string arrangement edits while looking at all of the sections at once. I have asked Ableton a hundred...

Re: Why does Live 10 still insist on hiding the video window?

That's interesting. I'm on the Mac version. Maybe it behaves differently on Windows. This would be such a useful option if Ableton could add it.

Why does Live 10 still insist on hiding the video window?

Of all the DAWs that I use to compose, Live is the only one that has to hide the video window when the program is not in front. This is so frustrating when you're trying to audition sounds outside of Live, or working with multiple programs. Please, give Live an option to keep the video window visibl...

Re: Any way to stop Live 10 from adding date when consolidating?

Thanks for the reply. I have an app called Name Changer that does batch renaming, and removing extra characters. Just seems like it should be more of a preference than a feature.

Any way to stop Live 10 from adding date when consolidating?

Live 10 has a new behavior that adds a date at the end of the audio file name when you consolidate an audio edit. I've looked everywhere, but don't see a preference to switch this off. It's very cumbersome when building sample instruments. Any thoughts on how to change this behavior?

thanks!

Re: Clicks on all tracks during tempo change

After a lot of testing, I was able to narrow the problem down to one track. It’s not coming from any plugins, but there is an audio file that extends across my tempo change. It’s not warped, although I did try trying warping in and had the same clicking problem. It just seems to be coming from the f...

Re: Clicks on all tracks during tempo change

I may not have explained this problem correctly. I'm not using any audio files, it's all MIDI. I don't have any automation break points over the tempo change, except of course the tempo line in the MASTER track. It's difficult to tell whether the click is coming from the tail of an instrument ringin...

Clicks on all tracks during tempo change

I use Live for film scoring work, and often have tempo changes. They are always direct changes, instead of linear ramps. So, the cue can be playing at 90bpm, and then change to 110bpm on a downbeat. Every time this happens, Live clicks. It gets recorded in an offline bounce also. I've eliminated all...

Re: Keeping the video window active when Live is not in front

Does anyone know if the video window has been changed for Live 10? Always open options would be nice to finally get. Also using the QuickTime engine in the OS instead of Live’s CPU would be better. Timecode support is just dreaming out loud.

Re: Keeping the video window active when Live is not in front

Well, I posted this topic almost a year ago and all it has gotten is alot of +1s. This isn't even the first thread that I've made about this topic. It's been going for years. I don't really think that Ableton cares about the video abilities of Live. It's too bad though. Live is a great film scoring ...

Keeping the video window active when Live is not in front

Pretty basic request since video was introduced to Live. Would so much more helpful if the video window did not disappear when Live was not the foreground application. I use it for film composing, and I often let the picture run while I audition sounds and instruments in other places. DP, Logic, Pro...

Keeping video open in Live 9?

Does anyone know if there is a way to keep the video window open all the time in Live 9? If I leave Live and use the Finder or another program, it disappears until I come back to Live. Would be very useful to have an "always open" option for it. Maybe I just missed it somewhere?

thanks

Re: New forum member.... Video / Scoring question

No thoughts on this? I realize it might be sort of off topic here. Are there other people working in film or tv music on this forum? Just curious.

New forum member.... Video / Scoring question

Hello. Just signed up to the forum. Been using Live on and off for years now. I do a lot of film scoring work, usually in Digital Performer or Logic, but Live always gets used in the process. On the current film I am working on, I decided to go all Live for composing to picture. Works good, but I ha...
