Re: Audition individual layers in an instrument rack

Your "play buttons" confuse me, there are no play buttons in an instrument rack. Are you grouping instrument racks inside a drum rack? Then the play (or previev) buttons on the drum cells would make sense to me. If so, put a velocity midi effect in front of the instrument rack, set the mode to fixed...

Re: Does proxy editing wav / mp3 work in Ableton?

I don't convert it and convert it back. I replace the whole source file. I don't know how Live's internal referencing of the decoding cache works. You may want to ask support@ableton and reference this thread. It may be that despite replacing the sources, Live still references your edits to the dec...

Re: Does proxy editing wav / mp3 work in Ableton?

Live doesn't read audio directly from the mp3s anyway. They'll be inflated to the decoding cache first.

Re: Why are some knobs so sensitive?

Has anyone else noticed this? Not too much, may be a matter of mouse speed and/or acceleration. But your examples pick two knobs that are designed differently, at least while the rate knob is in sync mode. The gate knob is a percentage, so click and drag is one fluent motion over the whole range. T...

Re: Live not saving my latest work!

One suggestion just as a precaution to corrupt sets and for incremental backups, perhaps try and save some incremental versions of your work every time you add a new plugin or make significant changes. Just file01.als, file02.als etc. That will at least give you an idea of new file saves and create...

English, French, German, Italian, Japanese and Spanish you mean :mrgreen: That's the pdf downloads - same languages you can choose for Live's UI (Look and Feel Preferences), and the built in link in the help menu opens the correspondig pdf.

Re: My WAV files won't load in ableton

Do they load in other audio applications?

Has any of you tried an audio editor on them that might reveal which (sub)format they are?

WAV, after all, is a container format.
