Ok please listen..
Actually, you don't even have to hold any modifiers.
Whatever your Grid is set to, the pen tool will put two nodes wherever you click.
Then ctrl+b again to deactivate the pen tool, and there's your quantized nodes.
To ignore the grid, hold ALT while drawing.
Unless you mean you want to quantize envelopes that are already there.
Please Please read this: (and I definitely don't mean this obnoxiously AT ALL, my friend):
These are actual figures:
Self-taught piano, guitar, drums, then
got a degree in theory and composition.
• in 1991, I bought Cubase, I use it professionally, still own it (we're at v7 now), and beta tested for Steinberg.
• in 1998, I bought Logic (when it ran on Windows). I use it professionally, and still own it (we're at v9 now).
• Reason of course, the day it came out, version 1 through today.
• All the N.I. stuff (Lustfully, every version updated the day it comes out, and I went through about a year when I forgot what
music was because I was building Reaktor ensembles all day).
• My house looks like somebody turned Guitar Center upside down and shook it for two hours.
• Started with Ableton Live at version 5.
• That's 20 years, and 350+ compositions, songs, various aural destructoids.
I actually do know what I'm talking about and I wouldn't B.S. you.
I used to criticize the probs with Live's automations in Clips vs. in the Arrange.
Version 9 is actually a phenomenal
improvement with automations in Live...AND
, I can't believe I'm even saying this, but, when I got used to Live's
way of doing stuff...my biggest problem was how fast everything was getting done. lol.
Something in my head was like: "wait a minute, there must be something wrong because
this is already...um?...done?
You'll get used to it.
For me, I use all of the above in different combinations depending on what the music asks for.
