Can I midi-map a parameter that is in the envelope dropdown?

I have a synth in Reason that is running as an exterlal instrument. I'd like to be able to use a foot pedal to control a filter there. I can see the parameter and edit in the envelopes (in ableton) if I create a midi clip, but I don't see a way to modulate it while I am direct monitoring myself play...

Anyone know Applescript for midipipe?

I'm trying to create an applescript to listen to a midi note and affect all the midi notes played after it until another specific midi note is played. Anyone out there good with applescripts? I know PHP, but am having a heck of a time trying to get this to work for my needs.

Can you save a chain of audio effects (like instrument rack)

Like the title says. I'd like to set up a vocal chain that I'll use in lots of projects. Can I save a rack of audio effects somehow like you can with an instrument rack?

Re: How to properly tap tempo in 12/8?

Yeah, It is counting every quarter note only. This is a bummer because the vast majority of my music (traditional Zimbabwean trance music) is in 12/8. So I just need to tap in the 2 over three polyrhythm to get the right tempo. This seems like it would be a simple fix in the whole scheme of things. ...

Re: i7 unibody macbook pro headphone jack audio super crunchy :(

I don't have that issue here. I use good Grado headphones, too. But 99% of the time I do use a Duet external because it sounds so much better. The internal DA is nothing special, so you minds well invest in a decent external.

How to properly tap tempo in 12/8?

Hi folks,
I have a song that is in 12/8. I want to tap the tempo, but when I do, the tempo is way to slow. Ableton doesn't seem to properly know how to tap at 12/8 (three groups of eighth notes, and I tap each triplet group)

Is there a setting I need to apply to make that happen?

Re: Simple question-extending length of sample in clip?

err.... I'm not trying to copy a clip, I have a clip that has a sample in in. The sample is 8 bars long. I want that sample to be 9 bars in length, so I want to copy one of the bars of the waveform and copy it at the end (basically like how you can select midi notes and command"D" and duplicate the ...

Simple question-extending length of sample in clip?

Hi folks,
I can't figure this out: I have an audio sample that is 4 measures long. I want to make the clip 5 measures long, and copy the first measure to the 5th measure. I want to achieve this without using follow actions, etc. How do I copy and paste a piece of an audio sample?

Re: Is it possible to work with beats in a clip without warping?

The tempo is correct, and everything lines up perfectly when not warped (it lines up with the click as well), but the "suggested bpm" is a bit off for each clip. The difficulty is that some clips are things like background vocals that are empty measures for half the clip, and then just come in at on...
