Exporting all project MIDI

Post by jonel » Mon Jul 24, 2017 9:29 am

I have lots of midi clips in the tracks of my song. Is it possible to save the entire project as a Type 1 midi file?

Thanks

Not possible. Live can only export single clips as type 0 files.

Thanks broc. I sort of suspected that was the case. Although Ableton is a very capable DAW, I'm discovering it is pretty well bottom of the heap when it comes to dealing with complete midi songs. Being constrained to just clips is mega poor and requires quite a few workarounds. If it wasn't for some of the other features I would happily go back to SONAR. In fact I think I will just re-visit it again.

Thanks again

+1

Ableton is a great DAW. There is no reason or excuse of why this is not possible.

How can someone collaborate in an efficient way with other people who uses other DAWS when there are tempo changes and MIDI files?

Please include this in a future version.
