Can Max for Live alter the way Session clips play back?

Does it give users more flexibility than the Launch Follow Action already in Live? Trying to determine if I should get Live Suite or Standard.

Definitely. Check Isotonik’s follow for instance.
MacBook Pro 13" Retina i7 2.8 GHz OS 10.13, L10.0.1, M4L.
iMac 27" Retina i5 3,2 GHz OS 10.11.3 L10.0.1 M4L.

Thank you. Would you happen to know if the following is a possible string?

(Clip 1 -> Clip 2) -> (Clip 1 -> Clip 3) -> (Clip 1 -> Clip 4) -> (Clip 1 -> Clip 5)

I would like to audition how clips 2 through 5 sound directly after clip 1.

Yes, well nearly...

If you named clip one.... "Clip one FA "Clip TWO" "Clip THREE" etc...

You would have MIDI trigger able follow actions that would be cued up ready fro clip one to end...

I do think you're overcomplicating things though, just duplicate clip 1...

S4racen,

Yeah, I'm starting to think that as well. I'll do what you recommend. Thanks.

It'd take me a ridiculously long time to reprogram Follow to do that, and as no one's ever asked for it....

Go for the simple!
