Follow actions stop after some time

In Live 11, I have a MIDI track with 3 clips, each clip looks like this for follow actions: http://content.wellsoliver.com/storage/live-follows.png (embedded image seems to be missing, but click here No follow actions on a scene. I click the first scene to play, and the follow actions seem to execut...

Follow action quirk?

I have a MIDI cip with a 2:1 chance every 2 beats, A is play other (five other clips in the track) and B is no action. Ableton just plays this clip repeatedly, the A action is never fired. Am I thinking about something incorrectly? It seems like the B action just stops follow actions entirely... The...

Limit clip view to scale?

Is there a way to essentially fold the MIDI clip editor's piano roll to only show notes in a selected scale?

Triggering clips at random?

Is there a way to do this, or an M4L device?

You know, you have a MIDI track with whatever, 16 clips, and you want them just played at random, forever, or whatever.

That a possible thing?

Only allowing one record armed track? What did I do...

I have no idea what I might have done, but a fresh install of Live on a new computer, and I can only arm one track at a time, both MIDI and audio. Any time I arm one of any of the tracks, the others are disarmed.

did I mistakenly set some option? This is frustrating & odd...

Looper & MIDI CC from drawn envelopes?

No external hardware. Trying to trigger Looper's transport button by a MIDI CC via drawn Envelope. Can I do this somehow? Can't seem to set a MIDI channel MIDI To to the Audio track where Looper sits, also not sure how to learn/set the transport button to an envelope. I can do this with another loop...

Triggering CC presses with... envelopes? Something better?

Hi all: in the process of working with Audio Damage's Enso, I am using the Clip's envelope view to draw envelopes to basically sequence CC presses (anything over 50 is a press). It... kinda sucks! Is there a better way to sequence CC presses? Don't want to use any external hardware or anything, just...

Mac users & aggregate audio devices

Wondering if anyone can shed some light here: I have a Scarlett 18i20 and I made an aggregate device in Audio & MIDI Setup whereby the Scarlett'ss out's (1-20) are first, and the built-in output (1/2) are the 21st and 22nd out. I select this device in Live and set the Master out to 21/22, and ... si...

Audio track presets?

Is this really not a feature? It'd be great to right click on some audio track and 'save as preset' (routing config, any plugins, etc) and then right click later, Insert Audio Track has an optional fold-out menu with your presets. Is it useless to yell into the void and request such a feature? Is th...

Odd MIDI clock drift on external sequencer in record mode only

I don't know if anyone can help me with this, but when I have an audio track monitored, a simple 4-bar loop plays on the quarter notes dead even. When I enable record, and then record that audio, the notes are off after the first: http://content.wellsoliver.com/storage/live-4.png Anyone experienced ...

Isolating takes when recording in arrangement with loop mode?

I'm struggling with this, and I'm convinced it's easily done and I am just missing something. Just trying to record N number of takes and take the best, or at least isolate and listen to each. So: select four bars, enable loop switch in Arrangement, click record, and go. Then I stop, click on the cl...

Oh, makes sense! Thanks.

Anyone have any experiencing converting these to stereo? Using ffmpeg maybe? There over 2000 thousand files so I was thinking of batching something up...
