Re: finally... BITWIG STUDIO! beta 'soon'...

There's also been M4L. Even if you don't want to build stuff there's a bunch of free synths, the LFO plugin everyone seems to want, the entire pluggo collection, and loads of user created free stuff like step sequencers and event list editors. Not to mention the control surface madness it makes poss...

Re: Why did my 'Yellow' warp markers dissappear?

If, instead of adding in the audio file, you find the original Ableton set where you did the warping in the broswer, you can click on the little arrow next to the .als file (not in the samples folder) and it will show you the tracks which you can drag in to the new set. The clips will then be in you...

Re: Playing guitar through Ableton

Not tried with guitar but I used to run a vocal stream with a bunch of plugs (including vocoding/autotune) through an old 1.6 GHz Toshiba single core Centrino running winXP. It was fine for the most part although on some sessions I had to freeze some soft synths to free up CPU. So I reckon your Macb...

Re: Can I switch samples on the fly in a Sampler instrument?

Pres on "sel" at the top, to the right of "key" and "vel". You will see a zone selector, like key zones, but MIDI mappable to whatever control you like. You can set up your zones and map them however you want.

Re: Does the velocity editor work in a drum rack?

You need to adjust velocity sensitivity in the simplers in the drum rack. By default they are on 0.

You can adjust one then map value to siblings if you want them all to be equally velocity sensitive.

Re: Why does one clip start from the loop braces and one doesnt?

On the second clip you moved the loop brace but not the start point. The start point is the arrow on the left above the first warp marker.

Re: Post your most obscure Ableton Live knowledge

You can trigger video clips in sync with audio clips and scenes by MIDI mapping locators in the arrange page. It's a bit fiddly but seems to work OK.

It shouldn't be that obscure but as far as I can see it is.

Re: Post your most obscure Ableton Live knowledge

You can enable mapping macros to siblings in a rack by messing with the options.txt file.
I didn't discover this (it was Garyboozy in this thread, second post, which has the details) but it's worth repeating.

Re: re-recording stems

Instead of routing the audio to ext out, route it to the track you want to record to.

Re: Help! Does track freeze save all of samplers audio somewhere

Did you collect all and save at any point? If so they should be in the project folder, in samples/waveforms.
