Ableton Live Quick Legato / Midi Fill

Post by Chicago312 » Thu Mar 28, 2019 3:54 am

Is there a shortcut or way to 'quick legato' the midi notes?
I couldn't find the function in the manual and don't see any hotkeys for it.

If I place a few quarter notes, then want to extend/connect each midi to the start of the next midi note, how can I do it?
Thanks!

Essentially you're looking for 10.4.5 Changing Note Length, there is no hotkey, only mouse.

The tip below the image is your hint. There's various ways to select a group of notes (drag rubberband, shift+click, ctrl+click).

Beware: when you drag the end of the first instance of the same note over the start of the next that will be pushed further out right.
