Re: follow actions in scenes, scene change after longest clip

Has anyone gotten Clyphx (or other workaround) to work for this? I've also run into this: I started using EZDrummer to generate an intro, verse, and chorus in Session View, and then start filling in bass, guitar, or whatever inspires me in a hands-free environment... But Ableton scenes behave very o...

Re: Ableton Live ver. 7.0 compatible with 64-bit Windows OS?

What is your experience with the incompatabilities of plug-ins? Again, I'm OK with a slight slowness due to backward compatability. What kind of plug-ins just won't run under 64 bit?

Ableton Live ver. 7.0 compatible with 64-bit Windows OS?

I'm preparing to buy Windows7 (64bit) for a newly built-faster PC (the cheaper OEM windows OS only gives you one CD; either 32 or 64bit). Before I buy the 64-bit OS, I'd like to know if it is compatible with Ableton Live 7.0. I realize Ableton 7 & 8 are 32 bit, and could run a little slower on 64-bi...

Re: EIC users, orchestral strings query

So I'm concluding from this thread that Ableton's EIC2 Orchestral Strings ($189) is not as realistic as GPO, and especially if you don't have Tension (another $129), 3rd party strings are the way to go. This brings up a couple questions; What grief do you have to go thru with 3rd party strings in or...

Re: Split Clip doesn't work the way I expected. How to make loop

Decrepitude was right on- thanks! I used split, then consolidate to pull pieces out of the song to form concise loop segments. I'm just amazed that Ableton is soooooooooooooooooo lame at providing this functionality in an intuitive manner. Why not make this a right click option. Why is it only in Ar...

Split Clip doesn't work the way I expected. How to make loop

I just want to copy portions of a midi song (found on internet) and paste these into Session View where I can loop them. What you'd think would be a simple cut and paste is a tremendous tortuous non-intuitive experience! 1. You'd think selecting notes in Clip View and right click there'd be a copy &...

How do you split a midi clip ?

Ableton is really frustrating!! Friggin manual just says click in the Midi Display and execute the Split command.(it doesn't say right click... or...) Well that doesn't work, or you've got to point to some really non-intutive spot to get the Edit/split command to not be greyed out. I once stumbled o...

Bomes won't translate multiple footpedal pushes; why?

I've mapped a footpedal (FCB1010) using Bomes Classic to send an arrow key to Ableton Live everytime I step on pedal 1. This works once, but the second time I push pedal 1, nothing. I can see the midi signal going to Live, but the Bome's Log Window shows nothing for the second push.(The Log Window d...

Re: AngstroLooper - Can't get midi learn to work - Help

I discovered that you can use keyboard input (in my case, an old keyboard being used as a footswitch) to control Mobius Record function. You have to use Sustain. The short manual even talks about the use of Sustain to make the key-down act differently. However, I haven't figured out how to do Sustai...

Re: How do you control MobiusVst thru Ableton keybd interface?

Still have problem; Hitting the mapped keyboard key does not work the same way as mouse-clicking the Record (in MobiusVst). The Record device parameter (in MobiusVst) has a setting for Sustain which allow the keyboard click to act like the mouse click. Ok, so Record now works, But for other paramete...

Re: How do you control MobiusVst thru Ableton keybd interface?

Wow, I actually figured this out myself.

Turns out that in Mobius, you can set the Plugin Parameters. Now when you "arrow down", the new device parameters are exposed

Re: AngstroLooper - Can't get midi learn to work - Help

Armstrong looper is the same thing as AngstroLooper. At least that's what googling showed. I've moved on to Mobius despite its awkward looking interface. It really looks very powerfull and not that difficult. Except I can't seem to figure out how to control its device parameters (without using a mou...

How do you control MobiusVst thru Ableton keybd interface?

Anyone know how to map a key-press to record a track in Mobius? The only way I know how to control Vst device parameters is to unfold the Vst Device Parameters (Arrow on Device Title bar)and key-map in Ableton. The problem is that Mobius only exposes (8) device parameters, and of course the ones I'm...

AngstroLooper - Can't get midi learn to work - Help

I've got an older version of Live before Ableton added the looping feature. All I really want is to get AnstroLooper to loop hands-free (I intend to use the keyboard sustain pedal). I haven't been able to midi map the record button (on AngstroLooper) using the MidiLearn Angstrolooper feature. Actual...

How to use Mobius in Live?

I'm trying to record loops in Live hands free, thus the interest in Mobius. I'm stuck; can't get Mobius to do anything, and I'm frankly confused how it should be setup. I have Track 1 in live7 as an audio track with Ext. input. I have the Mobius VST effect inserted in Track 1. When I play my electri...
