possible new idea for live

Post by DJSLEEPLESS » Tue Feb 15, 2005 11:02 pm

I have been using the demo version of live for a while now and thing that some kind of pull down menu should be included in the settings of each file to allow for a track to have various preset loops, this would be great while djing to be able to get a track into live with its preset markers copy it to another track and have a pull down to go to various loops that have been pre made within that track. it would save having different takes on that track (saving hardisk space) and mucking about each time you want to loop say the last few bars to mix the track to better perfection. also posibly having full track names within the track much like id3's on an mp3, alowing for people in years to come to search through their masses of tracks that they have stored over the years. and lastly a mp3 converter (dosnt have to be real time) that will convert to lives most efficent file format.

just a few thoughts, if this can already be done let me know how and ill stand corrected.

This has been asked for many times already, definitely would be nice.

That would be useful - but a feature like 'loop in place' would be easier & only requires one more button on the Clip Parametre window... Being able to loop a section of a track and trap the playhead and then release it would be sweet :)
