Have Live follow click-track from Trigger device?

Hey guys! Would it be possible to set up Live 9 so that it starts recording at an incoming signal (from an Alesis Trigger IO, say either as a note or a trig of some sort) and keeps recording in the tempo of the external signal? I've been trying to find out info on this with Google, but find too much...

Re: Loading hardware synth patches into live?

Yes, I have, and it works somewhat, but not always, for whatever reason.

Loading hardware synth patches into live?

Sorry for starting so many different threads about this, but this problem is making my head hurt. Since Live doesn't support sysex, is there another way to load the MIDI-settings for a patch on a hardware synth into live? I just can't get my head around this thing.

How to receive MIDI CC from external synth?

I've been trying to automate some clips sending MIDI CC from an Analog Four. I've set the A4 to send MIDI CC via a Roland UM-550 MIDI device, and I've set the device and port on (track on and remote on) in Live's MIDI preferances. But what more should I do for it to record MIDI CC? I've tried to jus...

Yeah, the A4 can do sysex dumps. Do you know if MIDIYoke or whatever it is called could translate the sysex into MIDI CC? Because then it might be possible.

Unfortunately the swing doesn't work in real-time AFTER recording. That would be awesome to have.
Ah, ok, thanks for clarifying! :)

Can Live receive MIDI CC into clips?

So, I'm trying to find a workaround for not destroying my Analog Four's patches while automating patterns in Live. I'm thinking that if I can send some sort of MIDI-dump of the patch I'm using into Live, so that Live records this into a clip as MIDI CC, that would pretty much solve the problem.¨ The...

Real-time swing on Push?

So I was re-watching some of the Learn Push videos, and from Video 2, Create Beats, it seems as though the swing knob adjust swing real-time. But I have never gotten it to work that way myself. Is it because he uses it with sounds built into Ableton Live, or what? Check 3:54 into this video; http://...

Re: Resetting a synth from automation - any ideas?

Until I find out what sysex-string to hit the A4 with, this will have to do; - Assign clips/scenes to program changes 1-16 in Live - Preserve space in banks E-H for 4 songs - Create 15 copies of the kit assigned to pattern 1 in a bank and assign them to pattern 2-16 respectively If anyone has a bett...

Re: Resetting a synth from automation - any ideas?

Program changes won't work unfortunately, or at least it is not the ideal solution, as it would involve basically duplicating any clip created in Live on the A4, which would be a bit of a hassle and counterproductive. Clyphx looks interesting, I actually stumbled across it yesterday, thanks for the ...

Resetting a synth from automation - any ideas?

Sequencing and automating MIDI CC from Push to the Analog Four is really cool, but the problem is, when going from a heavily automated pattern back to say the first not so automated pattern, the A4 will use the synth settings from the last played pattern (which was heavily automated), thus resulting...

Re: Any way of mapping and naming 127 MIDI CC's for ext gear?

Found out I could just add the 8cc's device lots of times, group them individually and get control over them all. :)

Any way of mapping and naming 127 MIDI CC's for ext gear?

So far I've used the Max4Live device linked to in the Ableton tutorial video for Push to map out 8 MIDI CC's that can be automated with Push. But ideally, I'd like all the parameters to be available for automation - so my question is, is there a Max for Live device that can map out, rename and handl...

Push-only Manual inside

I edited the Ableton Live 9 manual to only contain the material about Push. Found it a lot easier to search for certain Push-related stuff while browsing the PDF. Thought I could share the PDF with other people who might be interested. The file is hosted in Sendspace, there's no hokus pokus or bogus...
