There are some things in Ableton Live that I think only three people know about.

Here's one: The rack Hierarchy view, right click the little Rack Overview and receive a menu which will allow you to quickly jump to any instrument, or effect within the rack.
It's very useful when dealing with complex racks, but almost nobody knows about it.

So what obscure Ableton Function do you think most people do not know?


YESSSSS!

Thank you Angstrom!

@Angstrom, nice one.

To move your view of anything in Live left/right or up/down, hold Option+Command (Mac) and you will see a hand you can drag around - e.g., Device Chains, Arrangement View, Zone Editors...

I am sure there are PC equivalents to the first 2.


FOR PC /WINx:
[Ctrl] & [Alt] gives you the "grabby hand" thing and thanks (again!)Angstrom!
(Between Angstrom & Stromkraft I'm getting lots of ideas and help!)

I just learnt you can edit the text window for Lives clips as well as well as Live’s tracks. Quite useful for adding info relating to Key or how it was made, at a glance.

It’s not particularly obscure Ijust see stuff in Live and never really use it until I notice it properly. 8O

I just "lernt" this myself a bit ago Greg! Same way too...
Stumbled on it while I was wishing for it! (Sub-Menu)

My challenge with the manual is usually nomenclature but this
one was all "where to find it" and I run out of patience quick
when I'm in the middle of creating something. I've been using
"side-chaining" lately and particularly "Ducking" my drums, and
the "Notes" have come in very handy indeed!

My recordings and clips may come IN raw, but they never stay that way.
The Notes feature I KNEW had to be there; who wouldn't want this???
So although not so obscure, it is in a way and I'm sure lots of future
forum visitors will be glad you mentioned it here and/or stumble
across this post and find it THAT way! :idea:
Brilliant!
