How to control: reverse, clip tempo, pitch in real time?

Post by TomaszM » Thu Dec 15, 2011 10:38 pm

Hello
I think in Ableton Live are some serious missed midi mappings.
First important thing is REVERSE (no midi command)
Second: changing clips tempo without pitch: Double tempo, Half tempo (no midi command)
Third: changing PITCH or transposition without changing tempo (there is only in diatonic mode, i'd like glissando effect
How to make midi mappable REVERSE, DOUBLE/HALVE TEMPO and PITCHSHIFTING and make midi control to track, not to individual clip. For example: Firts track - button1 - reverse/original, button 2 double tempo, button 3 - halve tempo, When press button 2and3 - return back to original tempo, button 4 - octave up, button 5 - octave down.
Second track - button 6 reverse........so you can have many tracks with many idependence controllers.
And it should works on Launchpad (the color led buttons are good).
OK. I know there is a Looper BUT Ableton's Looper doesn't have doubling or halving tempo without changing a pitch.
Thanks

Hi Tomasz,

Things like the half/double tempo and reversing the sample are calculated offline by ableton live. So there is no chance to change that via midi or M4L.

cheers,
Simon

OK. Its look the best way is to write looper with this possibilities in M4L. Warping ang time stretching works perfectly in Ableton. Sad.
