Re: switch scenes in session view automatically?

pete44: I also perform in the Session View with the different sections of my songs laid out between scenes. My question is: if all of your songs are pre-arranged (8 bar intro, 16 bar riff, 8 bar break, then 16 bar chorus, etc,) and then you want the 'Solo' section to be open-ended, I'm trying to und...

Program Change Racks!

As a stage performer, I would be thrilled to have a Drum Rack-style rack...128 squares...and be able to place a plug-in inside each square. Which is how Drum Rack already works...but in this case it would be the full key range of each synth, but selectable by Program Changes It seems to me this woul...

Re: After 10 years : why is midi mapping in Live so archaic ?

Since 2002 I have been asking for a special Midi Map mode so that certain assignments only happen when that particular track is ARMED. That way you can use the same faders and knobs for multiple VSTi's and adjusting a knob on one instrument will not send the message to another one. So damn simple. I...

Re: Poll: Bring back Auto-Assign Colors to pre-9.5 functionality

Okay Ableton--it's been a few weeks. How's this coming along? An Options.txt would be a perfectly acceptable solution for us if that works for you. :-)

Re: Poll: Bring back Auto-Assign Colors to pre-9.5 functionality

I've found that previous clip colors saved with the .asd files won't work anymore. Here's the email I just sent: Dear Ableton development team, Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for what you do. I’ve been using Ableton Live as my primary production tool and DJ tool, for the greater part of th...

Re: Poll: Bring back Auto-Assign Colors to pre-9.5 functionality

I'm very relieved to see how many people feel the same way about this mandatory change. Special thanks to soundsliketree for writing to Ableton. I was working for about six hours today in Live and this same color over and over and over again really slowed me down and added so much confusion. For thi...

Let us know if any of the Abes get back to you. I hope they are realizing the seriousness of this decision and are planning a way to rectify it!

Re: Poll: Bring back Auto-Assign Colors to pre-9.5 functionality

I have spent years color-coding my clips to my specifications. I use the color of clips to indicate identifiable categories of sounds (environment, dialog, music, movie sounds, foley, rhythm, etc.) I do not use tracks to do this. And I don't always have the same category of sound on each track. I a...

Re: Poll: Bring back Auto-Assign Colors to pre-9.5 functionality

While I appreciate the thought and voted yes, the way the poll items are formulated is pretty loaded. :lol: Not neutral at all. 1. Yes, do this and make this world a better place for all people to live in harmony and peace forevermore. 2. No, remain in this dark age of strife and sin while you sit ...

Re: Poll: Bring back Auto-Assign Colors to pre-9.5 functionality

I just cannot fathom why anyone is voting No here. You're saying that other users shouldn't have the choice to turn this off?? I would never deprive other users of the option to do something important for them! What the fuck people?!

Re: Poll: Bring back Auto-Assign Colors to pre-9.5 functionality

Oh god please this! I write primarily for film/games and having a new colour for every separate recording made differentiating parts much easier. It also allowed me to know, if I had copied say a brass line to strings, where that original clip came from for when I need to tweak one then the other. ...

Re: Poll: Bring back Auto-Assign Colors to pre-9.5 functionality

Right-click clip and change clip color. We understand how to change the colors after the fact. But not only does this add an additional layer of work in the studio (which is never an improvement to a software update), but this is completely unacceptable as a live performer onstage making loops on t...

Re: Live 9.5

For those of you that agree Ableton needs to give users the option of having clip colors automatically all be the same as a track, please VOTE here:
