Re: extract chain with automations and volume

Please report to support@ableton.com Even though its indeed a known issue, more complains means more chances for this to be put on the top fixes list. maybe this reply should be made a banner image for the whole forum. nothing you care about will ever be fixed, but keep sho...

Re: Turn off indexing

Hahah you know what setting the Indexer to Idle also fixed? The thing where Collect All And Save would stop updating the dialog after the third or so file and freeze for a few minutes. God how I don't miss that. The Indexer really seems to be the weakest point of Live, code-wise? It's also the reaso...

Re: Things you miss from previous versions of Live

But the thing that really really messes with the way I do things live is that 9 does not recognise symlinks. The thing is, my setup is as part of a band, with a load of short songs which I load separately. I used to have a "setlist" folder with aliases of the tracks I was going to use which made th...

Re: Turn off indexing

Thank you for this! I've been having a lot of trouble with Live freezing for up to 5 minutes sometimes, becoming completely unresponsive. This will happen when Live regains focus after a while, or when I'm loading or saving. I've started smoking again because of the enforced 5 minute breaks, not a j...

Re: How to use the sample browser as intended?

I tried that a while ago, and it wasn't for me. :/ But it's been updated since, maybe the new version fits my needs better, I'll check it out.

And I guess I'll put one mark in the "objectively bad" column

How to use the sample browser as intended?

I'm looking for suggestions on how to work with the sample browser. I have given up on my Live 8 workflows, since they are impossible in Live 9+ (eg using aliases/symbolic links to organize, switching between sorting by name/size/date to find files), and Ableton have been as clear as they could in t...

Re: —Please Bring The File Browser Back To Live 8 Functionality—

2. Have ore than one info column other than the file name visible. Actually you can have two columns. Just right-click in the column bar. Sort by clicking on the other column. I suppose up to 4 would be nice. Yeah, that's why I wrote one other In addition I think arguing to go back to the previous ...

Re: —Please Bring The File Browser Back To Live 8 Functionality—

This functionality is never coming back, is it?

So, let's perhaps talk alternatives:

Is there a way to organize samples that live in multiple directories so that they appear in one place in Live 9? Is there a way for a sample to appear in more than one place without having to duplicate it?

—Please Bring The File Browser Back To Live 8 Functionality—

Hi! There are two major things that the file browser did in Live 8 and now doesn't do in Live 9, harmful regressions that I wish you'd fix: 1. See symbolic links. This is THE deal breaker that prevents me from upgrading to 9 today. I have painstakingly organized all my samples using symbolic links, ...

Re: What's the best way to synthesize a choir sound?

If you don't have access to formant filters, find a formant frequency table and filter something square-ish accordingly, then add noise processed with a resonant bandpass for "breathiness" as desired

Re: Question about Sample management in Ableton

Consolidate each of the snippets (ctrl-j on windows). When you "Collect All and Save", they will be saved in the project folder as samples, named the way they are in the arrangement.

You treat it no different than the other directory icons... it's not that complicated :)

You can use Hot Swap as a fourth sample directory.
