session automation

Post by etruscan » Wed Jul 31, 2013 1:02 am

Does anyone know an easier way to automate session clips other than using the mouse and cursor to raise/lower the time/level line?

Thank you.

Well, there is Draw mode, before I had push, I used to switch a lot between those 2, in fact I always used draw mode and the grid Mac (CMD+1/2/...) PC (STRG+1/2/...) to draw a start and end point then I would switch to Mouse Mode and use the Lock on. I think Alt/PC Cmd/MAC to move the line up and down while its locked to left and right, to the desired value. Now since there are also curves, it's gotten even easier to accomplish a drop/rise or how ever you would call those effects. Anyway the easiest way I would say and also most desired for most people i guess, is to use a controller, any knob/fader should do, but Push is definitely best choice for Live, in my opinion at least.

I hope I understood your question right :D
