Shit, I'm still trying to figure out how Live affects DJing. I think that's more you're question- the APC is perfect for Abletoning. 8 tracks, many banks. DJs- we don't need 8 tracks. Where does that leave us with Live? I personally think I am evolving more toward using live as a sampler/FX/beatbox ...

A few years ago Ninja Tune came out with a record of horn stabs by a fellow named Raphael Corderos, I believe. Made for sampling. You could try and find that.

Yeah, nudge by track is one of the features I asked for last year in that online poll they sent around.

But it would be interesting to know how many samples one "nudge" corresponds to when quantization is off- it must be a set amount don't you think?

What is the channel that Live send its messages through? is it one of the control surfaces or any of them? OK, just tested this. Mapped CC 10 CH 14 to a clip from the controller Kenton Killamix Mini. When this clip is launched, Live then sends out a message CC 10 CH 14 VEL 1 to the Kenton Killamix ...

I don't think you can do that in Session. In Arrangement, yes, but not in real time really.

Perhaps record many very short clips and trigger them rapidly using follow actions?

I'd start by describing the random access and live jamming philosophy of the session grid- "it's like an excel spreadsheet, that you can fill with pieces of music, and then trigger different cells together or separately!" Man, the few people I have shown Live to get it pretty quickly- it doesn't tak...

The thing is, where to get decent faders? Everything else can be bought separately- but where are the faders?

No, but you can "unswing" it yourself by carefully positionning the warp markers.

Idea : set clip quantize to none, and then use the clip nudge feature- this must nudge the clip forward or back by a set number (very smalll for each nudge) of samples, since clip quantization is off. How many? I don't know.

Well, probably not ideal either, but might help.
