configuring your hot bitch arsenal

my new band, 'hot bitch arsenal', does live-looping with ableton live. all the music at http://www.hotbitcharsenal.com was composed/recorded over the last three weeks using ableton live. the process of making music with ableton is so easy, and so natural that i am producing 2-3 solid, quasi radio-fr...

i've experimented a bit more - i do see the time sig for each clip, and when i'm working in 5/4 the clips are marked as 5/4. however, when live looping nothing seems to line up. even if i happen to get the first loop right, i have never been able to get a second loop to be in sync. anyone doing this...

anyone out there working in 5/4, 6/8, etc?

i've been trying to work with odd meters to no avail.

setting the time signature to 5/4 or 6/8 does affect the metronome, but clips recorded in session view don't quantize. then things get even more confusing.

help! a fairly thorough scan of the manual turns up nothing on time signatures.

jane says and various bits of wankage (live looping video)

a bit of virtual banjo, a tiny red toy key-tar, some pitch correction software and ableton live are all it took to make this cover of "jane says": http://www.iosonic.com/video/janesays.mov (quicktime) http://www.iosonic.com/video/janesays.wmv (windows media) it is utterly amazing how much serious wa...

how are you guys specifying which clip ctrl-k will delete?

this has always been the problem for me - i may have started other loops and so the current clip is not always the clip that deserves deletion.

watermelon man live looping acapella video

andrea nettleton-kirkman of atlanta, ga handles all of the vocals here, doing a pretty damn accurate rendition of herbie hancock's watermelon man.

looped live with live.
