1. a single keystroke to rewidn to zero & start playback

2. sort out the focus
it really bugs me when i cant use +/- to zoom without using the mosue to click
somewhere first, to shift focus... fair enough if there are 2 or 3 possibilities
of what I coudl be zooming, BUT if there is only one then zoom!!!!!!!
I find LIVE slow to edit in (comapred w ProTools) for this reason alone
I can cut & do everything in PT without using a mouse
I cant do the same in LIVE without a whole lot of trial & error & setting up quickeys...

/end vent
These issues are NOT addressed in Live 9. BUT! We do have another APC/Launchpad to buy!!

I have a template that always maps the number pad "1" to a locater at the beginning. Once you get used to it its automatic. As the arrangement grows I start adding more numbers to various locaters (first verse, etc.) like markers in logic. Quick and very usable.

Just use HOME key , or fn + left arrow to return to zero
nothing else.

Hey, so I have been watching the "MasterClass" videos with Deadmau5 doing a trick on Ableton (there is also a video on youtube where he is doing this!) and while he is sequencing midi in Arrangement view the cursor jumps back to the beginning of the measure whenever he hits something (it is a screen view so I can't see what he hits). Grr... it looks like an easy way to just listen as you are creating melodies, without having to 2xstop/start from the beginning or clicking in the scrub area to start playback at a specific time... rewinding just a measure and pausing would be epic... and apparently it CAN be done. I will re-post the answer here if I find it! :wink:
(I'm using Ableton Live 10 on windows 10... just sayin)

Note: I just realized this isn't in Session view, but you can still just swap the midi back to Session after you work it out... so still works
