Multiple Arrangements - simple yet oh so powerful

Post by alexaaz » Fri Feb 14, 2014 8:05 pm

Hi,

There could be a little drop down in the header area that allows you to create and switch between multiple arrangements. Then you can try different arrangements, mixes, etc, all without having to save multiple versions of the track and allowing you to keep the same session view.

Best,

Alex

Great idea. And it also won't take forever to open since it stays within the project.

I wonder if it could be done without using a lot more resources?

imagineowl - I work in software and in my opinion to do multiple arrangements within a project is trivial. The arrangement is really just the organised list of when and how to play all the samples, virtual instruments, etc that are loaded in already.

Like playlists in Pro Tools?
That would be great.

FL Studio has just added this feature and seeing it in action really makes me sad that we still don't have this in Live.

My arrangements get so crowded and messy because I like to work on multiple ideas all within one project. The ability to switch arrangements and free up the clutter would be an amazing addition to Live.
