prepare dj mixes like mixmeister timeline?

Post by discjockeyr » Mon Nov 16, 2015 3:40 pm

hi,
is it possible to use ableton Arrangement View like the mixmeister timeline? what i mean, in mixmeister when you edit, cut, loop, change the mixing point in any song in the timeline the following songs are not affected. so in case that you have 10 songs in mixmeister timeline and you modify the mixing intro/outro on let say second/third song it does not affect the following 7 songs mixing position. is this possible in ableton live?

I used to use mixmeister some years ago and editing automation will work in the same way. If you want to remove sections then you would need to select the region and then select delete time from the edit menu.

Thanks for your reply. Be delete section is not always the solution. If you replace any song in mixmeister playlist then you have to just set again the mix point for that song, all the songs following are not affected but in ableton when you change any part of any song the following tracks are affected

yes you're right, I don't think there is a way to make live behave in the same way as mixmeister. I suppose the only thing to do is make sure a track is right before moving onto the next.
I think mixmeister is still available and recently released a update.
