Drum Rack : Re-Order the Slots from the Pianoroll

Sometimes i need to look at the note arrangement in the pianoroll to determine the optimal slot order for a Drum Rack. http://s10.postimg.org/azfymfc61/Ableton_Live_Drum_Rack_Wishlist.png screen shot on windows I also would like to have the option of automatically applying that slot order in the pia...

Macro/Meta Arrangement

A system for creating patterns of patterns which can be used/processed as objects. Or layers of arrangement. Perhaps an advanced version of "Follow Action", with a discrete arrangement view which is relative/modular rather than absolute/monolithic as the current one. Each component could be a short ...

Browser: Cut (for Paste)

The current browser lacks the basic cut function, such that moving files between folders requires dragging, which can be sluggish/annoying if the destination is distant from the origin.

third-party sequencers -- counter-productive?

Many drum machine plugins come with a sequencer: http://www.musicradar.com/news/tech/the-14-best-vst-plugin-drum-machines-in-the-world-today-410653/11 Whenever I try to make some use of it, I end up wasting the time by re-entering the patterns in the DAW's native sequencer, because I prefer to have ...

Saving a track into a browser folder -- very slow

Version 9.1.2. When I drag an audio or midi track into a folder in the browser for archiving, individually or collectively, it can take as long as a minute, even if the track has only a few clips and no additional devices/plugins. This happens across different sets. I don't recall having this proble...

better browser

Manual rating & meta-data editing. When keyword-searching: the option of displaying only the files rather than their folders (as in Bitwig), so that auditioning the files doesn't require going through the trouble of expanding every their folder. The ability to set multiple plugin root folders and sh...

audio tracks should receive MIDI directly

Current AL does not allow, for example, FabFilters on an audio track to receive MIDI directly, except CH1-CC1. If I wanted a ProQ on an audio track to learn my BCR2000, I'd need to create a MIDI track and route it to the audio track to transmit the MIDI signal. If the ProQ then learned the BCR's kno...

Re: Live 10's GUI

I'm ok with the GUI, but I hate the new logo & the website design. I miss the more friendly & inspiring appeal of the pre-9 era.

Re: Global Tuning & Scales

I'm afraid the issue is not on host site, it's VST side. VST plugins receive midi information and only then translate it to frequency internally. [...] So unfortunatelly Live or any other host has nothing to do with it, unless you use only built-in instruments... which you do not. A host may not be...

Re: a weird automation timing issue

Apparently the pre-delay is an accumulative side-effect of 3 FabFilter plugins I have on another track. I knew they could cause latency, so I already had them set to "Processing: Zero Latency" and "Lookahead: Off". Even the plugins themselves were deactivated when I recorded the clip and took the sc...

a weird automation timing issue

I noticed this while I was automating EQ8. It happens with other devices too. Below is a track with no other devices/plugins than Utility, with its Gain automated, supposed to reduce the gain of a whole beat by 35db. Reduce the gain it does, but at a wrong timing. The automation kicks in too early, ...

Re: Limiters: how -not- to use them

Loudness is not an indicator of the quality of a mix/master. The more you limit the song's peaks, the less become the song's transients & dynamic range . A proper comparison of the mixing/mastering qualities of different songs requires first matching their average volumes, measured conventionally as...

swappable clip slots

In the Session View, on a particular track... Present: When we drag clip A onto clip B, A always replaces B. (If we wanted to just change their order and the track had no empty slot, we'd have to create a temporary scene or use another track's slot for B to make room for A, and then put B into A's o...

AL natively laggy/sticky

As someone who's been using AL as the main DAW for more than 7 years with occasional trial excursions to FL, Reaper, Sonar, Cubase, Studio One, etc., I keep noticing that AL responds slower than the other DAWs in certain basic actions such as creating an AUDIO/MIDI track, moving clips, and loading a...

Re: BitWig Studio bought - check out the video

Bitwig has a big hill to climb to match Ableton What hill? What AL features apart from M4L is Bitwig missing? On the contrary, how long is it going to take AL to have the following Bitwig features: - hybrid tracks & partial bounce - layered editing - parameter histograms & enhanced per-note control...
