Hi guys, i need a bit of advice. I want to record my dj mixes in ableton. Via a line in on my asio soundcard. ihave figured out that bit, but now i want to know if there is any way of auto syncing the tempo of ableton with the tempocoming from my mixer so i can use some of abletons effects in my mix.

Cheers

In Ableton 8 you can in theory sync to an external MIDI clock source. You can set this in Preferences:MIDI Sync. Set 'Sync' to 'On' for 'Input'. Send MIDI clock from your mixer if it can do that. You will probably have to enter an offset too.

In Ableton 9.04 at least, external sync seem to be totally bugging out, at least on OS X. I assume this is a Live bug so would expect the same on Windows. I haven't tried the 9.05 beta nor 9.01.

There's already a thread here started by the same user.

He must've cross posted (naughty boy!).
