How do I get a clip to show in he arrangement view?

It seems any clip I add in the session view does not show up in the arrangement view.
I've been learning this app thru tutorial vids and and their clips show up in both views. I can't figure out why mine does not.

Re: Upgrade over time

It is a pricey program and I see the Suite is $799 at some places. There are programs out there that offer better value vs. price. Propellerheads just dropped a $100 off the price of Reason but it's nothing like Live. I would have never owned this program is Ableton didn't offer a special price last...

Re: SWA Complete Ableton Live 8 reduced to only $1.99!!!!

I have it. I usually prefer the videos from groove3. My major complaint about the SWA video is that it uses that Adobe Air crap. I have a separate drive for videos. Air just installs the video, adding a gig to your OS drive, doesn't give you a choice. Sony does the best tutorial videos for their pro...

Re: What exactly is a "construction kit"?

Probably a dumb, basic question I know. I read it all the time in re: sample DVDs that come with mags and other places where you can get samples, but I don't know exactly what it refers to and I'm just curious. That's a great question. I have libraries that have them. I assume it's basically song f...

Re: Ableton Live 8 on Windows 7: a lot of VST don't work

That could be due to some of the 64 bit plugins are in the same folder as the 32 bit.

You would probably get the same error in 32 bit. Where you using any 3rd party effects?

Re: Amplitube + Live 7 = SUCK!

I have most of IK's software and they are consistently unstable (at least in my experience using them previously in Cubase 5). yeah, it's not just amplitube but none of them ever cause problems in reaper I think Reaper is the only app I've come across where just about every plugin works even in the...

Re: Live's Sampler

The sampler reminds me of Direct Wave that comes in FL Studio. Better suited for playback.
Outside of Kontakt, VSampler is a very under rated sampler for quick sound design. It also has an auto looping feature. I have no idea what it going on with it's development but I'm happy it works in Windows 7.

Re: Live's Sampler

unless you have stability problems with kontakt being a 3rd party device, or you want to have something much simpler to use and optically integrated, kontakt is lightyears ahead in terms of functionality, probably ifnot the by far best software sampler around. definetely check the suite demo first,...

Re: Dual Core or Quad Core? Is Multicore worth it?

AMDs are great for the budget. I have a Phenom x4 9950, Intel Q6600 and the only thing noticeable is they reduce rendering times for video. My other 2 are DC systems. I haven't noticed anything remarkable using quads over dual cores in audio. I haven't even come close to choking the resources on my ...
