Remvoing older Preferences folders?

Is it save to kill the folders ~/Library/Preferences/Ableton/10.xx when you've upgraded to newer versions? e.g. I have 10.06 and 10.05 folders now that I am on 10.1.

Undoing audio recording and keeping the browser clean

When I undo an audio recording, I find it a little frustrating & cluttering that Live keeps that take in the browser for the current project as opposed to deleting it. Is there a way to easily delete un-did audio recordings, or set it to delete the file when you undo, versus cleaning up a bunch of u...

Live quick overdubs?

Not sure if I can explain this correctly, but I am trying to find the most efficient way to repeatedly add audio tracks w/ the same track.. Meaning I setup an audio track w/ correct inputs and some FX or whatever, then record, play for a bit. Happy with that, I record again on the same track(?) whil...

Nevermind, I am an idiot. I'd delete the thread if I could!

Arpeggiator only on rate vs key press?

I feel like i had this working and now can't recreate: when I press something on a MIDI channel where an Arp is enabled at 1/2 (and hold on), I only want the MIDI event on the next appropriate step. Right now it's sending the immediate key press, followed by subsequent rate steps.. I know I had this...

Push 2: Recording multiple MIDI channels

Arrange view: I can only get the Push 2 Live Port to record input from 'all channels' -- when I try to pick ch. 1/2/3/4 so I can swap between playing on my 4 MIDI channels, I get no input. Recording on 'all channels' records everything regardless of what channel I have actively selected. Is there wa...

Push 2: Viewing Audio while playing MIDI?

Something I often want to do is play MIDI while viewing a selected audio track, but it seems like I can't: when you switch to the Audio track on Push (or Live), you can't use the control surface to bang out MIDI any longer.

Is there a way to do this?

loading audio and setting BPM or exporting w/o warping

I am trying to use Live to export some 24-bit audio as 16-bit, but I don't know what BPM these tracks were recorded in. My default set BPM is 75, and when I drag the audio files into an audio track, and then try to export, Live warps them to a different time. Is there some way I can just import 24-b...

expanding view of plugin when selecting via Push 2

My channel has my plugin views collapsed by default: http://content.wellsoliver.com/storage/ableton.png I'm trying to see if there's a way so the view expands when I select the plugin on my Push 2, as you can see above, the hand icon is on Midivolve, so I'd like to make the view expand w/o interacti...

Ableton always needs permission to make changes (MacOS)

Not a big deal, but whenever I run Live 9 on my Mac, it always needs to make changes, prompting for my system/root password.. Any idea why this might be happening?

help me figure out this 4-track Looper-based setup? clipping

I have a nice project with two audio inputs (external 1 & 2), grouped and sending to a send (sending to Sends Only). I then have four audio tracks that have their Audio From receiving from that send (Post Mixer), each with a Looper (one at 2 bars, then 4, then 8, then 16). It looks like this: http:/...

Re: changing the channel for midi mappings?

My temporary solution is to set the pad midi values to notes so low I'd never play for the most part (C-2, etc). It's working OK but using the proper channels here would be sublime.

changing the channel for midi mappings?

In midi mapping mode, I have a Akai MPK Mini MK2 and I have my pads on channel 2 and my keys on channel 1. I turn on midi mapping, click a record button for the looper, and click the pad, which regsters as G#1 on channel 1, but my pads are channel 2. How can I can change the channel for the mapping?...
