hi!

i need some help and can't find a way to do it: is there a way to stop the global timeline via a scene launch in the session view?
i'd like to have a scene that not only stops the clips but also triggers a command to stop abletons timeline running, as if i would press the global (transport) stop button. how do i do that?

hope that my question is clear enough...

thanks,
kostia.

search the forum for 'dummy clips' and midi loopback

also IAC or midiyoke, depending on whether you're mac or pc

basically you fire a clip which sends midi back into live, which is mapped to the stop button.

hi longjohns,

thank you!

i was actually hoping to do it without MIDI loopback. here's why: i am writing music for a theatre play and will have to hand out the complete live set to somebody else who will play it back during the shows. so obviously i want the set just to work as it is without the guy messing with his audio-MIDI-preferences or installing midiyoke, if his computer is running windows.

but i guess there is no workaround. or is there?

cheers,
kostia.
