Re: Momentary MIDI

How about leaving the rack on all the time and putting a utility effect before it with an infinitely negative gain
when you press a key (not sure about apc , try it first with a midi keyboard) the utility goes to 0 db
the rest of the time it's at a mute functionality

Re: Warp mode causing clips to sound jumbled up - -please help.

I've found warping an art more than a tool, an art BTW that I haven't mastered yet :) Try the (many) different warp modes and you'll see that each mode changes the sound differently. Search the forums and the internet on countless discussions on the topic of warping. Most of all be patient, there's ...

Re: Midi map track volume for audio OR midi tracks?

Re: How to pitch shift multiple tracks ?

Try this:
Group the tracks and select all 3 of them + the grouping slot
you see the transpose is linked to all 3 clips
now map that transpose to a midi knob
hope this works
I'm at work , can't check
