Re: Legato mode, I just don't get it.

Get a clip of a vocal in session. Duplicate it 12 times. Set each clip to legato mode and make sure its trigger quantize is instant, Pitch each clip up (after the original) so the first clip stays unchanged, clip 2 is +1 pitch, clip 3 is +2 semitones, ..., etc ... Now, enter midi mapping mode and t...

Re: Sound system (DJ) session tips

I could probably talk for hours about this but the only real advice I can give is to keep your performance rig as simple as possible. It may end up being complicated under the but hood but you need to be able to interact with your gear like an instrument. Muscle memory. Group tracks are your friend...

Re: Running video (live and pre-recorded) on a 2nd machine

Thanks for your advice on this :) The audio could likely be a simple split of tbe main output, so shouldn't be too hard, but I guess I would need an audio input and I don't think Mac's have this built in?... Hmmm, so audio over Ethernet cable could be fresh as. Sync should be able to be midi over US...

Sound system (DJ) session tips

Hey there, I was hoping some of you wonderfully experienced ableton DJs could offer me some advice. I've been putting some hours in, putting together a template for some DJing I'll be doing very soon... I wanted to take things further than simply playing 2 decks (not that there's anything wrong with...

Running video (live and pre-recorded) on a 2nd machine

Hey there pals, So I'm looking at something like this for adding visual elements to a live set... https://www.ableton.com/en/packs/rokvid/ But I'm wary of overloading one MacBook... So if I were to run a 2nd macbook, could I have Max running on a 2nd machine, synced via MIDI over USB or something, s...

Re:

A cool thing you can do with legato is to put a vocal line or an instrumental phrase as clips in many slots. Set them all to legato mode, tune them differently and assign them to the midi notes you just tuned them to. This will give you "a sampler" that can play any melody with that phrase. By simp...

Getting around / Getting shizz done w/out the mouse

Hey pals, I'm currently delving back into ableton for a live performance project after a while away, and I'm finding it incredibly "mousy"! I'm trying to be patient, and RTFM to find keyboard shortcuts, etc, but I'm finding myself getting incredibly frustrated at the lack of keyboard shortcuts / con...

Editing Warp Points & Usable Clip Editing on Push 2?

Anyone know any workarounds for this thing here in the subject ^ ? Any 3rd party software? Any hacks or workarounds to get my warp point editing on w/ push 2? Always disliked the messy / mousy warp editing in the DAW... Works great for the most part, I just hate mouse work... I used to wish for keyb...

Re: Cut loop from audio recording using only Push 2? Impossible?

really it needs to be a fine control. Yeah. It could be it's the protocol in use that lacks possibilities for finer resolution, but I don't see that as being impossible. It's not like Ableton mush adhere to what some external committee thinks. The ability to do this in Simpler seemingly would contr...

Re: Cut loop from audio recording using only Push 2? Impossible?

…want to use Push 2's "Clip" button to zoom in and change the "start offset" position and precisely adjust the start point of the section of audio I want to loop. Herein lies the problem... There is no way to precisely adjust the start point (aka "start offset") of your loop . The start point is qu...

Re: Cut loop from audio recording using only Push 2? Impossible?

Looks like this still isn't a feature...!? Ableton developers, PLEASE get on top of this. Triggering and editing clips is something that the push 2 hardware is perfect for, just connect it. . A potential workaround might be to temporarily switch off global quantize. Not sure if you can do that on th...

Rhythm rotation on step sequencer / workaround?

Helloooooooo, So if I make a beat, then I want to shift/rotate the beat, for instance move the 1 to the 3, which would end up with the 2 on the 4, the 3 on the 1, and the 4 on the 2... Can I do that? Or would I need to do some kind of workaround like recording into a new clip starting on the 3, inst...

Yes, I'm beta testing a midi clip editor I built for user mode.

Any option for mobile phone view?

Hey there,

Can't seem to find a "mobile view option"... So using this forum on my phone, like I will do 90% of the time is super awkwie.

Am I missing the option? Anyone have a workaround? Ie. 3rd party forum app or something.

Thanks :)
