Re: m4l SessionLooper: synchronized looping without Quantization

This looks ideal for me.Im looping with mainly acoustic instruments - guitar,fiddle etc,so I'd love to see a "delete clip" button to use via footswtich. How would an "undo" be different from "delete clip" in clip recording? Just to be clear - the clip length is based on the currently selected clip.D...

Re: Looper, and how to use it.

Not sure,but this could be what you're looking for - or you could maybe work out a variation to suit :

Re: Loop mode for not warped clips and automation

I made the same request a few days ago : https://forum.ableton.com/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=186194 I'm using Ableton for live gigs too (guitar/fiddle/keys). It's unbelievable that Ableton didn't implement this years ago. You're right in saying that Live is a bit of a misnomer - there isn't much attention...

Re: Set audio clip loop length BEFORE recording!!!!!!!

you have a softstep? thats the ultimate midifoot...get the Looper going, no need to set clip length, especially since there is no 'good' way to do it Yeah,I do use the LOOPER occaisionally (in fact I posted a new use for LOOPER - using 2 synced LOOPERs per track on multiple tracks for easy A/B or v...

Re: Set audio clip loop length BEFORE recording!!!!!!!

What about launching scenes etc?
You'd be stuck with long trigger times.
That would be impossible for me - I'd have to work with 1 or 2 bar "delays" for scenes or clips I need to retrigger.

Re: Set audio clip loop length BEFORE recording!!!!!!!

Double clicking is ok if you're in the studio - but if you're playing live and using a midi pedal,it's just another thing to go wrong. The pedal I have is the Softstep,and there's no "click" feeling or noise. I suppose I could look at changing pedals - but even so,concentrating on double clicking wh...

Re: Set audio clip loop length BEFORE recording!!!!!!!

I know that this isn't the answer you're looking for, but if you own a Launchpad, you can get this function if you "upgrade" it with NativeKontrol's LPC script... But I totally agree; this is a quite absurd omission by Ableton. If you don't have a foot controller, it's pretty much impossible to get...

Re: Can Looper export multiple layers of audio?

Yeah,or just record directly into clips. Remember you can also set the LOOPER loop length before you record if you like,so you don't actually have to trigger it at the end. But if it's for composing,maybe you want to leave it to the feel. Either way,the LOOPERs will run in sync. I posted a bit of a ...

Re: Can Looper export multiple layers of audio?

Not once they're already layered you can't. What you can do instead is don't use LOOPER - just record the audio straight into clips that loop. That way they remain separate. OR set up multiple tracks each with it's own LOOPER. If you midi map the start stops of each LOOPER to the same control they'l...

Set audio clip loop length BEFORE recording!!!!!!!

Would I be right in saying this has been left out again? If so - why?Is it really that hard to implement? To be able to set the loop length of an audio clip in Session View before recording into it - just the same as you can do in a midi clip. Also what about MIDI mapping for DELETE CLIP? I don't ca...

Re: select clip on launch with APC40

I noticed this because I have a foot controller midi mapped to the same clip slots as my APC40. I'm new to Ableton,so maybe this isn't helpful to you - AFTER you've first started to record into a Live set,clicking on any (even empty) clip slot with your mouse,or sending a midi message from a control...

A (possibly) new looping idea

Don't be put off by the long winded explanation below. :D - it's simple to set up and use. - It's great for live music creation from scratch with instruments/vocals ,or as a module in a bigger setup. It gets you out of the "stuck on one theme" limitations,and allows you to switch in sync to a compl...
