Save Metronome State & Keep Record Enabled

Post by jbone1313 » Fri Feb 15, 2008 1:21 pm


Here are a couple feature requests that to my knowledge, aren't possible the latest version of Live 7, but which would really help my work flow. I would also imagine that they'd be relatively easy to implement:

1. It would be nice to be able to save the metronome state in a live set. I'm a drummer who plays to a click, and every time I open one of my live sets, I have to re-enable the metronome. Sometimes I forget, and I have to do some mid-song acrobatics to get it enabled whilst keeping the beat.
2. It would be nice to keep the record button enabled or latched--or have the option to do so. Currently, when you're recording in arrangement view, and you stop recording, the record button becomes disabled. Its really annoying to have to re-enable it every time you start recording again.

Yes, metronome state should be saved with the set for the previously stated reason.

Also the tabs at the right border (inputs, track delays, x-fades...) should be saved with set.
