Negative Start Time on Arrangement View

Post by miekwave » Fri Dec 07, 2012 8:26 am

I need to insert leading tones in Bar 0 leading to into Bar 1 (downbeat).
Check out some of my soundtracks. Also Ableton Live Performance video.

+1,000

I've asked for this many times.

Music has pick-up measures. what that means is that some compositions have a few beats of music before the downbeat, and that music is usually inside what is known as an incomplete measure, or pick-up measure.

Logic has this capability.

Why doesn't Live?

RYKR out.

can't you just insert silence or have a time signature change at the start?

I always start my tracks at like bar 3 or something to give me a bit of wiggle room.

We can do that however it offsets the bar count workflow. I like to stick with the good ol' 1-16,17-32,33-48,49-64,etc... workflow as I am accustomed to dialing those measures in specifically.

I need pre-roll time. When starting at bar 3, time scale will be not corresponding to a videos' timecode.
