Depends on music type, doesn't it?
Not at all. Depends on taste and knowledge. There are so many producers, apparently, that assume repetitive means you should repeat the exact same clips in exactly the same way for it to be valid. I suggest this is boring. The best repetitions are slightly different and imperfect, strikingly often also when they appear not to be.
If you feel superior because you're applying small variances in your sequences, then by all means do that. I know REAL musicians don't use loops :P But let others have the feature they'd find useful,
What's with you? "I was just sayin'" means what I said is an option to consider. How is that not obvious? Since when is pointing out suggestions for approaches that can work right now, a suggestion that functionality that is requested for any reason should be invalid?
This tool provides a workaround for this, but it's not very easy or intuitive to use: http://www.maxforlive.com/library/devic ... lias-clips
. One would think that if a random guy on Internet can do it with Max4Live, then surely Ableton can do it much better in Live itself, right?
As I've already pointed out I own and use AliasClips
and it's straightforward to use. I just wrote that above, Didn't read that part, did you? Or what are you disagreeing with?
is not a "a random guy on Internet". He's a skilled MFL developer that makes great products. Maybe you should try and make something similar yourself in MFL if it's so dead easy?
No-one is questioning Alias functionality wouldn't be great for many users natively in Live
, so please stop pretending this to be true.
