10 workflow tips for ARRANGE MODE

Post by aporia » Sun Dec 07, 2014 7:44 am

Hey forum:

Here's another one of my tips videos, this time on arrangement mode:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CfUgVInYE-g

And here's a brief table of contents for the concepts I go over:

1. Alt+Click to unfold and fold tracks in batch
2. Reverse Reverbs for transitions
3. Give yourself more headroom
4. Setting Up modulation Ahead of time
5. Frozen Audio tracks for organization
6. Getting on the grid (with manual chopping)
7. Playback Scrubber Surfing
8. Automation on Send tracks!
9. Automation on the Master (ftw)
10. Remapping keyboard shortcuts


Hope it's worth your while!

Enjoy!

Great video!

The TOC doesn't seem to apply to the vid I watched... but it's all good. Great tips and tricks.

Originally, I was looking for info about the benefits and disadvantages of using automation vs modulation, in relation to my workflow... and searching the forum, I came across this thread.

Will be checking out your other stuff too. Keep up the great work!

Cheers,

As a way of saying "thanks"... here's a toc for the first video listed:

Tip 1: automation + modulation
Tip 2: using rests with follow actions
Tip 3: changing follow action time intervals
Tip 4: more session mode templates
Tip 5: arp+ random + scale = melody generator
Tip 6: playback scrubber for resampling
Tip 7: symbols in clip names
Tip 8: gate sidechain to muted midi track
Tip 9: copy to siblings (options.txt)
Tip 10: show devices (options.txt)
