Re: Poll: Bring back Auto-Assign Colors to pre-9.5 functionality

Oh god please this! I write primarily for film/games and having a new colour for every separate recording made differentiating parts much easier. It also allowed me to know, if I had copied say a brass line to strings, where that original clip came from for when I need to tweak one then the other. A...

Dedicated Mixing Window

Hey, I'm not sure if this has beenrequested before but I would love to see a dedicated mixing window...Like Logic, Cubase, Reaper etc It wouldn't have to break the single window approach, you could bring it up at the bottom (like in Logic) I am a film composer, and mixing is one of the only real dow...

Film Score Video Blog - Scoring film with Ableton Live

Hey Guys, I just started my own little video blog thing, its more a way for me to ramble about what I am doing so I can look back after the project and see where my mind was at, and what I can learn. But I am one of very few who use Ableton Live for film score. If you guys want to check it out, or e...

Re: Syncing Music To Picture (Mainly for film composers)

Hey, Well you see a template is a very personal thing based around your own work flow and system strength. My template contains a few instances of Kontakt 3 that I leave empty ready for me to load as I need. I have an instance for Strings, Brass, Winds, Percussion, Wind, FX each of these has 16 empt...

Syncing Music To Picture (Mainly for film composers)

Hey all, I just finished up a short video tutorial on how to Sync music to picture using Ableton Live 7 (mac) and a free online tempo calculator. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TOgxUevhwh0 The tempo calculator can be found here. (wish Live had a feature like it) http://www.fransabsil.nl/htm/eventhit...

Re: More control over editing automation points

A way to get the BPM change to land on a grid line is to use the draw feature, click on the grid point where you want the change, turn off draw, then delete the extra points after the tempo change...again you cant always get a specific tempo with this. Having tempo changes on the marker bar, the sam...

Re: how do I set exact BPM while automating song tempo?

What they should add in future versions is a tempo change on the arrange page using markers (the same as time signature changes)

What you think?

[dwi] Custom Groove Dosent Do Anything

Hey,

When I create a midi pattern (custom), drag it into the groove menu, then attempt to apply that groove to another midi clip, nothing happens, it continues to play an unaffected groove (however the groove will change if I use a build in groove ie Hip Hop grooves)

[amo] Multi Timbrel MIDI instrument SOLO problem

Hey,

I've noticed that when I try to solo a sound in a multi timbrel instrument it still plays the sound of every other sound within the multi.

Heh i can afford it thats not the issue, its just its annoying that if I want my ableton to keep up todate I have to pay £100 for the luxary which is a bit annoying considering there are still things to be done with 6, besides that £100 could go to better use.

Screw Live 7 Keep Updating 6

Hey, Don't you think Ableton is 'double dipping' a tad releasing live 7 almost a year after 6, surly they should finish fixing all the bugs and features missing from previous version such as 6. I for one wont be upgrading to 7 as the features they are including I don't think are worth the extra £100...
