Switch scenes like Maschine

Post by jlip » Fri May 15, 2020 9:35 pm

I was playing around with NI Maschine and I noticed that if you click on a scene in the middle of a bar, it will switch to that scene instantly and play from the current beat (instead of starting from the beginning).

So for example if I play Scene 1, then at 1.2.4, I launch Scene 2, it will start playing the Scene 2 content that is positioned at 1.3.1, instead of starting at 1.1.1.

I found this to be quite a nice feature because it allows your scenes to "overlap" and you can get some nice natural fills/transitions between scenes.

Can Ableton Live do this? So far I've only been able to launch at the start of clips.

You can do this with clips by activating their legato mode (it's in the detail clip view), but not with Scenes.
