Hey guys, Amaury from Ableton responed to me, saying that he's read this enitre thread and the entire wishlist thread, and that they've already been discussing this internally. He says it's on the list, which is long, so there's no saying when they'll find a solution, and that the most important thi...

I just emailed the link to Ableton, asking politely for their consideration, and I added that last suggestion by jeremywen to the Feature Wishlist post for them to see.

More great stuff from The Ableton LIVE MIDI looping squad!

O.K., I've posted this feature request to the Feature Wishlist forum, but I haven't sent the link to support@ableton.com yet. If everyone who believes in this and would like to see this option added would check out the post and post their support, I'm thinking it would be better to wait to send the ...

Please make MIDI looping work like Audio looping does.

PREMISE There are a bunch of us who have gone from looping Audio clips live to looping MIDI clips live, because it opens up a whole world of sonic possibilities. You can tweak your soft synth's front panel after you loop, as well as still being able to manipulate all the audio effects you'd use if ...

Cool. I'd like to encapsulate these ideas and post a suggestion for a "Play early MIDI notes from 1.1.0" option to the Feature Wishlist forum. Question for you guys - Since V6 is set to come out in Sept I would think that all the Abes resources are focused on that. Do you think I should wait until a...

I think we've gone a bit off the point here. It's about being able to play with whatever "feel" feels right to you, depending on what the backing tracks you're play to are doing. Sometimes this means you're going to play a hair before the beat, sometimes right on the beat, and sometimes a hair after...

I hear ya deva and, believe me, I'm a practicing musician and I'm working on my rhythm all the time. It's just that if you're even a millisecond early with let's say a whole note, you don't just miss hearing that millisecond, you miss hearing the entire whole note. It makes technical sense but not m...

I was really hoping that quantize settings could be changed during recording, as this would solve the problem. I do all my MIDI looping live and while I do my best to be dead on when playing a note or chord on the downbeat, sometimes one note of a chord will be too early & then doesn't play back. Ho...

Yes, puleeeez! I also have a MotorMix that hasn't been on in a few years. I love it's compactness and it would be great to use with LIVE. Go for it!

I've been struggling with this problem for a few months now, too. see - http://www.ableton.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=41578 I read g-buddha's tip on assigning hotkeys and was excited that this might be a solution, but it didn't work for me. Here's what I did: I've got one hotkey for 1/8th quant and o...

MIDI Looping - Some MIDI notes not playing in a clip

Hi all, I use LIVE primarily in live performance as a looper right now and I've recently discovered the virtues of looping MIDI Clips on the fly instead of looping Audio Clips. The MIDI Clips target soft synths (mostly Reason). I'm having fun exploring this method as now I can take advantage of twea...

System settings to reduce latency and CPU usage?

Are there some system settings, specifically on a Mac, that I'm missing that could reduce latency and CPU usage? I performed AdamJay's Live 4 Performance Test and my PowerBook was showing a CPU reading of about 98% and sometimes more. I looked for other PowerBooks that are the same as mine on the li...
