.... and another midi track feeding into simpler - no clips - monitor turned on - so you can play notes on your keyboard while the other tracks are feeding in sequence clips.

Thursdays installmant

Still on the theme of flexibility ( I've started so I'll finish ......) I was playing around with feeding different midi clips into one track. Set up a simpler track - route other midi tracks in and you can play around mixing in different rhythmic/ melodic patterns. I tried to set up clip envelopes ...

file , export midi clip. Create a folder for all your midi clips and then drag them to your new song from the browser.

word of caution

These midi control clips might not be the holy grail after all. Running a couple of clips - say modulating Simpler and an automatic fade out at the same time ( clips are on different midi tacks ) seems to put a strain on the system. Modulating the loop start in simpler is brilliant though - and I wi...

....and

.... also works really well with rhythmic midi clips. Try turn loop on / off, zoom in /out while simpler is playing the clip. This then applies the sweep to a smaller section of the wav.

modulate simpler !

I've found the best use for these midi Ctrl envelopes - to modulate the loop start ( and any other parameter ) in Simpler. This works really well. Set up simpler so its being triggered by a string of the same 1 / 32nd notes add a delay - any other effects Creat a simple modulation clip that controls...

not track specific

The clips are created in an empty midi track - but the parameters that they control can certainly be global. So far I have automated the master fader, tempo, EQ4 on the master track, panning on the master track. You could however control track or bus specific parameters. If you make a fade out clip ...

results of digging deeper.

Following on from the above efforts I've now discovered Midi Control clip envelopes. Follow the instructions as above - create a midi track but don't put an instrument in. Use midipipe and delete all the unwanted clip fire buttons in the track. Now just create an empty clip - the length will depend ...

I've found a way ....

If you visit this link below at the end of the topic I have explained how you can use midi control clip envelopes to automate anything in Live ( I haven't actually posted my final installment there yet so give me a few minutes )

sussed it .....

I had the remote control output to midipipe ( in preferences ) turned on. Switching this off solved the problem and turning effects on and off using above method now works. Mmmm .... what shall I try now?

turning effects on/off

just tried to use the same method to turn an effect on - there seems to be a midi feedback loop 'cos the effect appears to turn on and then turn striaght off again .... I need to delve a little deeper .... hope I can get it to work.

Any ideas ?

Variation of above ....

My brain must work in a different way - I followed the explanation so far and then I went off on a tangent. What I have done is to set up the track in the same way as above - using midipipe etc. and then create a long midi clip. Then I assign scene launch buttons to notes ( using my keboard to enter...

automation - midi clip properties

I just answered my own question - automatic modulation - you can create clip envelopes for any impulse / simpler parameters - so you can modulate the loop start, decay and anything else you want. I just need to figure out a way to get Live 4 now as the beta is about to run out and I dont have ( don'...

Automatic modulation ?

There are some brilliant tips here .... Question to Pitch Black ( or anyone else that might know )... are you talking about manual modulation ... or is there a way you can automate the modulation of the loop start and decay ?
