Re: Why No Send/Return Track Clips for Looping Automation?

Also you can use the Max API device to automate parameters in other tracks if you have Suite. So you can e.g. use a clip in a normal audio track to automate things in a return track. I agree it would be a lot easier if you could just have automation clips in return tracks but as with so many things ...

Re: Live 10.1

Just noticed there seems to be a top bar and waveform/MIDI part for each track on the arrange page again (like in 9 but self coloured). So pleased if this is right, it makes editing when not in automation mode so much easier.

Re: Slice to Sampler question

.asd files are Live's record of slice points, warp points etc. - not audio files at all. You need to keep them.

Re: Performing live with minimal latency(real instruments)

Try increasing to 96k 256ms or 512ms you might be surprised Yeah this can work. Latency is created when samples are delayed going through the system but most processing is clocked to sample rate (i.e. latency is a processing delay of a number of samples) so increasing the sample rate will reduce la...

Re: Performing live with minimal latency(real instruments)

Use input monitoring on the vocal track, make sure reduced latency when monitoring is on in the options menu, don't use any high latency plugins to process your vocals (especially if using a pitch corrector use use the version optimised for live use, there will usually be one e.g. Autotune has a fai...

Re: Live 10.1

I'm going to pitch in against the scissor tool. Logic with its multiple pointless toolbars does my head in. cmd+E or swipe drag does everything you need.

Did someone mention there is a Live 10.1 or something?

Re: LIVE 5 question about pdc

Yeah up to a couple of years ago Live's delay compensation was, shall we say, not amazing. They fixed it though (in that I don't notice it any more and the forum has been noticeably silent on the matter). Most of Live's native plugins (except Max devices) should process in less time than 1 sample so...

Re: Hardware synths that can be automated in ableton

You can do a fair bit on a mini with a MIDI-CV converter (Korg's SQ-1 will do the job as well as being a decent sequencer) and even by sending audio signal into the ESP section and using the env out to control other parameters, but not everything on the mini is automatable (i.e. not everything has a...

Re: Ableton forgetting output config when device not available

At the very least if we could turn on all the I/O at once rather than clicking on every single damn button.
Saffire + Octopre + MR-18 (lots of I/O because I like my analogue synths) and if I forget to turn one of them on or something before opening Live it's painful

Re: Save VST data with the clips

If the VST supports program change messages (most instruments do in my experience) you can do this via the pgm change boxes at the bottom left of the clip. You would have to save custom sounds as a VST preset (not an Ableton preset). It also turns out that if you automate a parameter in one clip but...

Select all option in audio I/O preferences

OK, so I have a lot of analogue gear, which means multiple interfaces, one of which is an MR18 which I also take out live. And very time I reconnect it in the studio I have to go and *individually* turn on all the I/O channels in audio preferences. It drives me nuts. I appreciate that having frewer ...

Re: Recording audio of midi CC - tweaked midi tracks

Overdub button - the little + button next to automation arm - should enable you to play and/or record tweaks without erasing MIDI notes. Or have I misunderstood what you are trying to do? Also, clip automation still works in the arrange page. It's a bit clumsy IMO and I guess if you wanted to edit t...

Re: Another noobie question from a wandering 19 year old fool

I'll be honest here I think that should be on by default. I understand why you sometimes need to turn it off but on is kind of expected behaviour.

Re: Live Performance Setlists???

I run everything in one giant setlist (although rather more than one scene per song) controlled by a Launchpad. It's a pain to set up but makes life much easier at shows. I used to run separate sets for each song but as you suggest the load time is a problem. It only takes about 20-30 seconds but th...
