If you had to chose, what's the single best feature in Live?

Post by Anubis » Wed Apr 19, 2006 3:30 am

For me, it has to be follow actions, in the Session view. I find it to be the most useful creative tool that Live has to offer. I like to use it on two adjacent audio tracks containing rhythm elements. Maybe three or four clips in each set to cycle through in some manner. It gets really interesting if you initially trigger the adjacent clips so that they fire slightly offset. You can get some slicy, dicy grooves that way.

The 15 grand's worth of bookings it's gotten me so far!:D

No, really... it's the ability to integrate audio, video, and lighting into one live multimedia performance package.

consolidating without loosing the loop function would be nice, it kinds of pisses me off everytime I consolidate I have to switch the loop on again.

apart from the obvious basic Live stuff that makes it all hapen - I would go for LiveClips.

I didn't make much use of them for months, but recently they have become very well used.
