Change one midi clip and other instancesupdate automatically

Post by coolfoam » Tue Nov 13, 2018 7:48 am

Let's say I have a midi clip with a bass fill in it. The clip plays at three separate points in my song.

Now let's say I change a note in the bass fill. I have to update all three instances of the midi clip manually. This is a pain and leaves room for mistakes.

It would be great if, by updating one, all the other instances in the project would also update. This would be similar to "prefab" functions in video game engines, as explained here: https://doc.xenko.com/latest/en/manual/ ... index.html

Not a native feature of Live, search Ghost or Alias CLips and you'll find a MaxforLive solution by a Mr Garcia

+10 drives me nuts
if the session clips and arrangement clips were linked with a ghost/alias relationship, then the ableton session-arrangement design would finally work as I would expect it to
