How do I keep the Spectrum on master Track Open?

Post by miekwave » Tue Mar 26, 2013 7:18 am

The spectrum automatically turns itself off view when I select other tracks, but I must keep it permanently on screen while I edit other tracks in clip/arrangement mode
Check out some of my soundtracks. Also Ableton Live Performance video.

Drop the spectrum on the individual track?

would that only analyse the single track, and not the overall mix?

Use a 3rd party spectrum analyzer.

I like Lives analyser, I think it would be better to have the option to have it permanently on screen while I edit other tracks in clip/arrangement mode. Like miekwave said.

There's a free VST called Voxengo Span that is amazing. I find it better than Live's built in spectrum. It can do exactly what you want it to. In fact you can have multiple spectrums simultaneously if you want. I don't think Live is able to do what you want. You'll have to find another solution, and Voxengo Span is a great one.

There's a free download link from my VST webpage here:
