Re: Why is it Shift+Click in the MIDI Note Editor?

I'm pretty sure it used to work as we expect. I'll do tests with earlier versions asap. I'm intrigued! Looking forward to your findings Well, I was wrong unfortunately. Did anyone report this to support@ableton.com? Do you mean it's always been the way it is ATM? I reported this to support but the ...

Re: automating the groove amount of a clip how?

That kinda sucks, it would be awesome if groove parameters could be automated

Re: Lock device view

Sometimes you do not want to see devices that are located on another track, and you want to see only the devices on the master track. And for what purpose would you select one of those other tracks if this is the case? Apparently not to tweak the devices there, so what else is there? This could obv...

Re: Lock device view

As such: what would this actually fix? It would fix always changing device view. Sometimes you do not want to see devices that are located on another track, and you want to see only the devices on the master track. If this feature would be added then you could scroll between tracks and see your dev...

Re: Lock device view (Device view lock button)

I offered a reasonable explanation that is basically what the company told me when I reviewed Live a while back. If you think that’s immaterial, there’s not a lot else to discuss Can’t you basically accomplish this using a second window? That’s another thing about Ableton. If there’s already a way ...

Re: Lock device view (Device lock button)

I don't think Live should have feature X just because other DAWs have it, but the fact that all other DAWs give users the option to see plugins from different tracks simultaneously probably is an indicator that it is a useful thing to be able to do. In fact, Live can already show third-party plugins...

Re: Why is it Shift+Click in the MIDI Note Editor?

All that said, I don't know if using CTRL/CMD to select non-contiguous notes (or clips!) would break anything as duplicate is a drag operation and you can drag without modifier keys once items are chosen. I'd lobby for them to add or change it if it doesn't break anything. I always hesitate to advo...

Re: Lock device view

1) Using a midi controller without any visual representation from plugins is quite inconvenient. So use one which has visual feedback. Furthermore, one midi controller can control only one device So? If you lock a device you'd be stuck with one too. Where is the other supposed to go? 2) I just don'...

Re: Lock device view (Device lock button)

Something like this mock-up. There's the regular device panel and auxiliary or "pinned" devices panel that's only visible when a device is pinned i.e. if no devices are pinned the panel is automatically hidden to save space: https://fbcgkw.sn.files.1drv.com/y4mFDMQmnr5mMQ7LH4YQK5cKdT6EGGqmueAMzhtDP...

Re: Make Keyboard Shortcuts Rebindable (Windows)

@jonljacobi I appreciate that AutoHotKey is necessary and exists, and for all I know it's amazing software, but combing through all your key inputs and running in the background 24/7 seems like a fundamentally invasive process to me, and therefore "janky." Sometimes the janky solution is the only s...

Re: Lock device view

Not sure about locking the device view, but it would certainly be useful to be able to detach live devices (i.e. floating windows) when needed, or to have a secondary device view to allow users to see more than one thing simultaneously. This is the reason people use third-party spectrum analyzers, ...

Re: Numbering of track (#) should add FIXED number

There are uses for automatic track numbering but these are limited. Personally I tend to keep clip names independent from track names, because the same clip can be on different tracks. So for example, instead of calling a clip "Piano 1", I might call it "Sequence 1", this way the name is suitable fo...

Re: Why choose "Edit value" for automation rather than just typing?

I can think of two very minor reasons that could easily be remedied: 1. Multiple automation points can be selected simultaneously, so if you start typing directly Ableton would have no way of knowing which one of the points you meant to edit. Solution: Write the software to ignore keyboard input whe...
