Considering this functionality and expanding on the request wouldn't it be great if you could inherit Master clips and you'd still be able to override sections or aspects of the inheriting clip, while still allowing other sections or aspects, of your choosing, to update with changes to the master? Or limit heritage to some parameters?

Like for example, you have a melody in Clip A, and Clip B inherits this, then you override and shift it some semitones in Clip B. Later you adjust the rhythm of Clip A, and Clip B adjusts the timing only of the clip and maintains your shifted notes. All recorded aspects and clip parameters could be involved in this.

I'd love to be able to grow music like that in Live.

Wouldn't we all prefer that when Ableton implements something they go beyond what other DAW makers already have done? And yet implement properly and in a user friendly way?

Inheritance would be cool, no doubt, but it's a lot less user friendly, as it is with coding. It adds a tight coupling between clips. If you have an inheritance chain as in C extends B extends A and you modify A, you could have unwanted modifications propagating to B and C. So we would need a "Make unique" function as in FL.

Simple "identical" clips would already be huge. Like when you have a clip A and you copy it elsewhere, it's still A, and any modification to A will propagate to every copy of A, in Session and Arrangement views.

I'm just asking for the base functionality :lol:

But we need dreamers and people that see beyond that! :wink:

Bringing this back, since it's still not in in Live 10 (beta, at least).
