Hi. I am still relatively new to Ableton. Use it for production and djing. I produce house, progressive house, trip hop, and occasionally some hip hop.

Re: Akai APC as Monome

It is indeed Follow actions. Notice the two triggering lights scrolling, that's due to the next clip being prepared based on the follow action setting. Easy to make by Midi mapping the individual clips to the APC grid. Limitation, no scroll options beyond the 8x5 plus alternatively Clips Stop / Tra...

Re: Having trouble with automation...

To make my problem a little bit more clear, I will give an example. Let's say that I am controlling a tracks volume with a knob. I record the automation using the knob on the BCR. Then I decide that I want to change something a little bit, so I go through and manually draw in the changes. The red li...
