Re: automation track greys out

User actions have preference over recorded automation, when you tweak a knob that has automation you override it. After that you need to re-enable automation to return control from the user (you) to the Live software. https://www.ableton.com/en/manual/automation-and-editing-envelopes/#19-4-overridin...

Re: Ableton midi editing and audio playback

Not sure I understand, but maybe "shift+space"? It starts playback from where it stopped in Arrangement Position.

Yep - closed Live, loaded two tracks, duplicated one, and then no longer able to delete tracks.
Can't replicate with those instructions.

Re: My WAV files won't load in ableton

That's not a WAV, it is that Mac metadata crap that comes in "_MACOSX" folders, like other crap like "Icon_" and "_ds_store" files. The filenames start with that "._" pattern. Maybe it is hidden from Mac users and they don't even know it is there? But it is visible on a Windows computer. If you are ...

Re: Mod Wheel Layering Question

You can create a Instrument Rack with 4 Chains (Pad, Piano, Strings, and Synth), then set the Chain Select Zones to fit those proportions, then you MIDI assign the Mod Wheel to the "Chain Selector" (note: mod wheel MIDI CC won't be usable as normal mod wheel anymore.). https://www.youtube.com/watch?...

Re: Specifics of Copyright/EULA (Section 5c)

That wording is pretty standard across the whole audio software industry.

You should check the EULAs for all the other stuff you have (plugins, samples, presets, etc.), you will see similar clauses everywhere.

Re: Unwanted Synth/Audio Distortion on iPhone

(edit: My guess is) You are clipping the gain output in those devices, it has nothing to do with Live and the distortion is not "always there" (at least not until you crank). You clipped the gain in the iphone first because it has complete crap speakers that made you rise the gain to hear the audio....

Re: Suggestions for notation? Plug in?

LiveScore needs Max For Live (and Java installed), it runs inside Live. MaxScore is for the Max MSP standalone (can be used in Max For Live, but unnecessary since there is LiveScore). Max and Max For Live also have a package called Bach, that has several tools for notation, but it requires you learn...

Re: Launch scene with no quantization but on first time bars

1.1.1 or 12.1.1 Those numbers are relative (for Session View usage), it doesn't really matter if it is 1.1.1 or 1001.1.1. What matters is if the Clips are sync with each other, not if they are in sync with a arbitrary number in the transport. But anyhow, you can put a Locator on 1.1.1 in Arrangemen...

Re: Launch scene with no quantization but on first time bars

You can't have 2 Clips playing at the same time in a track, it is always just one Clip at a time, if the long tail is an Audio Clip (not FX) and you want it playing together with another Clip, they must be in separate tracks. So I think you can put the "long tail" Clip in a separate track with the S...

Re: Suggestions for notation? Plug in?

There is MaxScore/LiveScore, which was paid, but seems it became free some months ago (wow, don't know how I missed that).
