Re: Ableton forgetting output config when device not available

At the very least if we could turn on all the I/O at once rather than clicking on every single damn button.
Saffire + Octopre + MR-18 (lots of I/O because I like my analogue synths) and if I forget to turn one of them on or something before opening Live it's painful

Re: I'm trying to use my launchpad as a midi keyboard.

Put it in user 1 mode then the keys will send note messages.

Re: Save VST data with the clips

If the VST supports program change messages (most instruments do in my experience) you can do this via the pgm change boxes at the bottom left of the clip. You would have to save custom sounds as a VST preset (not an Ableton preset). It also turns out that if you automate a parameter in one clip but...

Select all option in audio I/O preferences

OK, so I have a lot of analogue gear, which means multiple interfaces, one of which is an MR18 which I also take out live. And very time I reconnect it in the studio I have to go and *individually* turn on all the I/O channels in audio preferences. It drives me nuts. I appreciate that having frewer ...

Re: Recording audio of midi CC - tweaked midi tracks

Overdub button - the little + button next to automation arm - should enable you to play and/or record tweaks without erasing MIDI notes. Or have I misunderstood what you are trying to do? Also, clip automation still works in the arrange page. It's a bit clumsy IMO and I guess if you wanted to edit t...

Re: Another noobie question from a wandering 19 year old fool

I'll be honest here I think that should be on by default. I understand why you sometimes need to turn it off but on is kind of expected behaviour.

Re: Live Performance Setlists???

I run everything in one giant setlist (although rather more than one scene per song) controlled by a Launchpad. It's a pain to set up but makes life much easier at shows. I used to run separate sets for each song but as you suggest the load time is a problem. It only takes about 20-30 seconds but th...

Re: This note snapping behavior is stupid and should be fixed

I think there is only me and you who think that. I think there should be an option to have "normal snap mode" in addition to the smart snap. No, it annoys the hell out of me as well. At least it's not as bad as when it first appeared and trying to move notes vertically would reliably move them off ...

Re: Using M4L in a live performance?

If nothing goes wrong in testing nothing should go wrong on the night. Yeaah. I would disagree on that because practicing doesn't always factor in a lot of stuff that occurs in a live situation. There are known unknowns (power fluctuations and poorly filtered power, smoke machines, stumbling stage ...

Re: Using M4L in a live performance?

Always found it OK including my (simple) homebrews and ones from maxforlive.com. Caveat: I did find a glitch with the Max API device where if you map it to a macro it causes Live to crash on exit. The actual set and playing gigs were not affected, the main annoyance was that whenever you opened Live...

Re: How to send MIDI pr. change to Novation Circuit Mono Station

Looking at the manual it looks like the program changes are on channel 16. The ctrl chooser is for continuous controllers not channels. If you have a track set the channel 16 and put the program change clip in there it might work. *However* this seems to change session (not sure what that is since I...

Re: On what do you guys perform? eg tables, stands?

I velcro everything to a plywood top to a keyboard stand that I made myself, and carry it all to gigs on one flight case. The flight case has bits of foam glued in the lid to stop it all moving about in transit. All I have to do is lift it onto the stand and plug it in. Saves about 20 minutes pluggi...
