has anybody actually used a synth that records automation into clips?
it is by far the most obnoxious thing in the world...
its left out for a reason in my opinion
Sorry, but that's the most ignorant thing I've read so far this morning. Live's session view is a pattern based sequencer. Other pattern based sequencers like Korg Electribe and NI Maschine let's you record automation when you tweak knobs on controllers.
It's a design flaw, not "left out for a reason".
im almost 100 percent sure that they designed the relative nature of the automation in session view for a reason. it makes it a more modular environment and allows for custom LFOS and a greater depth of automation when you add the "real" automation
maybe some ABES can clear this up on the design aspect...
but have you actually experienced automation in session view when it does work? i have and it was absolutely horrid and annoying to me...
the relative aspect makes it more geared to performance and making layers of automation instead of altering it for good every time you turn a knob
that said they should put an option in the clips and global prefs for a switch RELATIVE/ABSOLUTE
that way you could keep it modular like the relative or do full automations in session
