Re: Always a 30 ms latency when audio clip is recorded

Do you have any plugins loaded onto any other tracks, including the master track? And this question applies even if the plugins are disabled. I’ve seen a large delay when there is any other delay-causing plugin on any track in the project. This happens even if the plugin is active. For example, do y...

Re: Help needed: Audio -> MIDI

When you right click the audio clip the command is “Convert Drums to New MIDI Track”. Is that the one you tried? Because you mentioned “...to New Audio Track”. I have found this command works quite well for tracks that contain only drums. If you have a track with only snare hits, then it should easi...

Re: Can't start playback where midi edit marker is (vs. arrgmnt)

I agree. You should be able to click within the clip view to set the play point. Clicking in the upper area of the clip view to get the speaker icon to appear is tedious. Same for having to go up to the arrangement view to set the play point, when all the work is being done in the clip at the time. ...

Re: Changing position in a song in session view

Sounds like you want to work out the song in session view and then create it in arrangement view. That's similar to my use case. One important setting for this is the Quantization setting. Set it to 4 or 8 bars. That makes life easier for two reasons. First is that your session view clips will end u...

Re: Ableton manual and changing from PT

I have found that the Live manual overall is quite good. Perhaps it could use a very basic getting started type of section for beginners. But otherwise as a reference manual I’ve been happy with it. There are some omissions here and there, which have been highlighted on this forum. Fortunately those...

Re: 10.3 is unusable LAGS , UNUSABLE

Have you guys also tried the FPS limit in Options.txt? I picked this up in another thread and it seems to help. Try adding this in addition to the GDI option. You can try different numbers. Mine is at 20fps.

Re: VST confusion

This article gives an overview on where to install them. Basically, 64 bit VST2 plugins end with .dll and go in one location, whereas 64 bit VST3 plugins end with .vst3 and go in another location. https://help.ableton.com/hc/en-us/articles/209071729-Using-VST-plug-ins-on-Windows 64-bit VST2 .dll fil...

Re: Change the Piano roll editor

I completely agree with this. In fact, I’d like to have the draw tool use the prior note length as the next note length also, so it is supported with a single click. It should also support resizing notes by hovering at either end. And right-click should delete a note.

Re: Lock piano roll to key scale & mode

That has to be done per each clip on a track, correct? I used to think that placing ghost notes at the beginning of a track was good, but then saw that when making a new clip on the existing track, it didn’t retain the ghost notes. It would be best if Live supported scale highlighting (see FL Studio...

Re: Programing chords from a bass signal

If you can send the bass strings to a separate midi track, and are only playing one note at a time on those strings to trigger chords, then you should be able to get something workable by using a couple of midi effects. Create a midi track that contains only the bass strings and drop the chord effec...

Re: Emojis please... I mean...comping!

Pure supposition here. I suspect that the engineer tasked with implementing the emojis might have rather put their time into thinking through and implementing a highly requested usability feature such as comping. Those manhours spent on emojis could have been better invested IMO.

Re: Ableton is lacking some basic concepts

That may have been true in the past, but Live 10 is marketed today as primarily a music creation tool. https://www.ableton.com/en/live/what-is-live/ Music creation is mentioned first. And in the detail that follows, the features related to music creation are all listed first. Performance is not ment...
