If Live uses non-destructive editing, then how can I conserve space when making loops?
I only have a 20gig hard drive and I want to play my guitar into Live for 5 bars, then trim it down to a 4bar loop. But I don't want to keep the
un-used portion that I trimmed away.
How do I solve this problem?
You'll need an editing program other than Live. Anyone will do. Point Live to it in Preferences(this is all covered in the manual by the way). Double click your clip in the Session so you can see the waveform at the bottom. press the edit button. Live will launch your editing software. edit to your liking. save it. that's it.
