Re: Why do my tracks sound better inside Ableton than exported?

I don't know about PC machines, but if any Mac user EVER faces this, I suggest previewing the exported file with space bar…you'll get the file without any possible EQs.

Almost every single case like this always ends up being user error having to do with EQing on Windows.

Re: Using collections with external plugins ?

Most peculiar.
I hadn't actually noticed how some VSTs have that floppy icon and allow for storing of presets the "normal" way while some do not.
Wonder why. At least all AUs have that floppy icon, but I don't know why some VSTs don't.

Re: Arrangement - Copy Time Sig/Measures Data

Possible time sig automation is on the master track, so you need to copy+paste it there.

Re: Customized newly created audio tracks - Problem

Create a new audio track, set its parameters to how you'd like it to be by default, right-click on the track header, "save as default".

Re: the famous "Sample is Offline" Ableton situation

Come on guy's how about something helpful here? Collect all and save – that's your solution. I can guarantee collect all and save WILL work. Also, if it's missing, click on the "here" on bottom left, then hover your cursor on the of the sample on the sidebar on the right, and look at the bottom bar...

Re: Master clipping, yet all levels below 0db

You're probably roasting something on the tracks with some plugins.
Or running something hot into something on the master.

As we know, track levels per se don't matter as long as master stays green, thanks to 32-bit float audio engine.
But levels between/into plugins is another matter.

Re: Automation with External Instrument in Arrangement view

On Arrangement, CCs stay in the clip.

To overcome this and have CCs on the track, one can use M4L devices that use CCs such as this one:

Yes, i agree, automation and modulation automation are the same thing!
I don't know who you're agreeing with.
There is no such thing as "modulation automation".
You have automation and modulation.

Re: Copy midi clip to arrangement: automation env. doesn't stay in clip?!

The "he" was me! I think we're just getting hung up on words, i'm calling it "modulation automation" but you're just calling it "modulation"! Automation and Modulation are two different things.

Re: Copy midi clip to arrangement: automation env. doesn't stay in clip?!

This is by design: in Session, automation is in clips. In arrangement, it's on its own lanes (that you can open many by clicking the + sign). And this has nothing to do with modulation per se. Sure, but in arrangement you can also have modulation automation inside clips (so, not in lanes), right? Y...

CONSTANTLY!

Save iterations of your sets after every major tweak you do... like Song 01, Song 02, Song 03.
As long as you keep saving with the same filename, you'll get automatic backups of the previously saved states in the Backups folder.

Yes.
Could you tell me, how ? I can't see the presets from external plugins in browser.
You first activate them in the Prefs, under Plug-Ins tab.
After that you'll see them and can all to Collections.
