decided i need the old retro record along with session automation (hell, retro record for that please too). can you imagine THAT??
you could just tweak away and then call up bars upon bars of "in the moment" magic!
Hitting a creative wall here, cos i want to perform each section of the tune with effects automation as midi loops and scenes in session view.
I do not want to visit the arrange page until its time to see the captured scenes as an arrangement and bounce it.
And I want to create those sceenes from "retro recorded" passes that i have trimmed/cut to length. (think build ups,drops, flourishes etc) Tell me if im dreaming.
Anyway im wandering into a session automation request now.
I think that the conceptual rewrite Robert Henke speaks of (viewtopic.php?f=1&t=98393&hilit=+midi+lfo
) is due another brainstorm at ableton hq. I hear you can record the automation to cells in maschine so perhaps the functionality i desire is only a few years away.
