Looper's Overdub blocked by clip envelope. MIDI Map crashing

Post by Per Boysen » Fri Apr 03, 2009 3:57 pm

Hi,

I just noticed this bug and wonder if anyone else have noticed? When recording a live input into the Looper plug-in, as Overdub, the overdubbing is stopped as soon as I start an empty "dummy" audio clip with clip envelopes to model Looper's parameter Speed.

Second, I noticed that Live 8.0.1 ALWAYS crashes if opening the MIDI Map Mode window and mapping a MIDI Note to Looper's parameter Speed and setting the range to "Min 0, Max 0". The idea here is of course to set another MIDI note to match the next pitch in the scale - and so on for each half note step (gosh, wish it could also follow MIDI Notes!)

The bottom line is that the two most immediate ways of playing the loop tonally from external MIDI is out of order. Wondering how that could pass the beta program...

The best way to loop in Live 8 seems to use Looper as a silent dummy in order to secure a stable tempo pick-up, and then duplicate the same external MIDI events used for Looper to target also a good third-party looping plug-in as Mobius or Augustus Loop.

Please correct me if I'm missing something important in regard to Live 8's live looping capabilities!

Today I tried this again - and now it works! Sorry for the false alarm, my Macbook must have been tilted by the other crash (that one has been confirmed by other users since yesterday, though).

I can confirm Per's experience of the MIDI Map crash.

I recreated those steps to set a MIDI Map entry and *bam* Live completely evaporated on me. Definitely a bug. :cry:
