Re: Options.txt in Live 11

That is a official feature now, the options.txt function was removed since it not necessary anymore.

Just remove it from the options.txt to avoid the warning.

Re: Why is there STILL no strip silence in Ableton 11???

Dummy Clips in Arrangement may be used for Modulation (blue), which is a Clip-only. Most probably from when recording Session Clips into Arrangement.

Re: Post your most obscure Ableton Live knowledge

This one from user polarforsker on Ableton's Reddit subreddit seemed so obvious in retrospect that I almost forgot it was actually new knowledge to me: https://www.reddit.com/r/ableton/comments/mop6bh/simpler_a_discussion_post/gu8epxh/ Throw a loop of silence into Simpler.

Re: Why is there STILL no strip silence in Ableton 11???

I know it is going to be hard for users of other DAWs to grasp this concept, but this feature, as described here, would cause problems with current functionality in Live, informally called "Dummy Clips". Multiple "Dummy" Audio Clips, which are audio Clips with silent audio, could end up being remove...

Re: Can tempo bending be assigned to a mod wheel?

There are 2 Nudge tempo buttons, up and down, you can MIDI or key assign them to mod wheel, but it acts like a on/off switch (when it is above the middle it is "on"), probably better to assign 2 buttons to those. Right-clicking the BPM in the top left should show a menu with Automation, MIDI assign ...

Re: Live11 MIDI latency unusable

If it works fine with Delay Compensation off, then it is shows it is a plugin adding latency, not Live or audio interface or computer.

Turning off plugins only mutes its output, you have to remove them from the Set to remove their latency.

Re: is there an M4L audio gate with sidechain? [PLZ HALP]

The sidechain audio routing with menu choosers was new to Live 10 (I think, not 100% sure), older devices won't have the sidechain menus (until Live 9 it needed at least 2 devices, one "send" and one "receive"). For examples of the newer Live 10 sidechain, C74's own Audio Routes package has some (li...

Re: Why does ableton constantly delete my stems? And silence my tracks?

Live doesn't delete files without direct user intervention.

Some people have problems with iCloud or other cloud service that upload files online and delete the local files.

Live doesn't read online files, files have to be local, in the drive, not online.

If you setup options.txt or an non-default script, then check those.

Re: Control of macro variations

What I said is easily testable, you can record automation for the Macro knobs of a Rack (EDIT: you can even use the Variations themselves to set the automation), then press a Variation of that same Rack, it will disable the Macro knobs' automation, which proves there is a conflict between Variations...

Re: recording midi

Live has 2 Views (Session and Arrangement) and hence 2 record buttons (plus the record buttons in each Clip Slot in armed Session View tracks).

So maybe you are recording to one View while looking at another?

Re: Control of macro variations

You can already record automation with the Variations, it will simply record the Macro knob changes. Which shows why you can't automate the Variations separately, it would obviously conflict with recorded automation for any of the Macro knobs. It would need an entire new sub-system to manage it, I g...
