Hi,

I want to use ableton for practicing my singing skills.
What i want to do is the following:

1) I want ableton to play a clip of 2 bars of a clip with an artist singing in it,
2) then i want ableton to play a clip without singing (karaoke style) while recording me singing, (i know how to make a karaoke track)
3) then i want ableton to play back what i just sung together with the karaoke clip
Then i want ableton to go back to step one, but right before going back to step one i want ableton to delete the clip i just recorded with me singing.
etc.

I can do this already, but it isn't automatic, i constantly have to press buttons on my push so i can't do this exercise for long periods of time because it is a lot work. Also i want to be fully concentrating on my singing while doing this excersise.

Is it possible to do this with follow actions? How would i set up such a program?

Have you checked out Clyphx Pro? It's made for this kind of stuff, pretty sure you can do this with it.

Hi,

Yes it's possible.

first, set your BPM according to your backing track. You need one audio track and one midi track.

In the session view, on your audio track :
add your original track as the first clip (scene 1)
add your backing track in the second and the third clip (scenes 2 & 3)

On your midi track :
- add an external audio effect, set your mic as the input, let the ouput empty
- add a looper device, set the Input=> Output to "Rec/OVR" to bypass your mic when not recording.

In the session view
-add 3 empty midi clip in the scene 1,2 & 3
- On each clip you have to set an eveloppe clip (automation) on the looper "state". the first clip is "stop" the second is "record" and the last is "play"

Then, use the follow action of each scene to trigger a différent state according to the lengh of your audio clip.
First scene : next
second scene : next
third scene : first

Hope this help !

Hi! Thanks very much for your explanation. There is one part of your explanation though i dont understand:

In the session view
-add 3 empty midi clip in the scene 1,2 & 3
- On each clip you have to set an eveloppe clip (automation) on the looper "state". the first clip is "stop" the second is "record" and the last is "play"

Where do i find "stop, record and play" ?


I tought it could be clever to answer here, so :


Quote:
add 3 empty midi clip in the scene 1,2 & 3 :

we are going to use midi clip to write enveloppe in order to automaticaly change the behavior of the looper. Just create a midi clip by double clicking on the empty space in the session view.


Quote:
On each clip you have to set an eveloppe clip (automation) on the looper "state". the first clip is "stop" the second is "record" and the last is "play"


To write an enveloppe on a clip, you have to show "the enveloppe box". In the clip edition view, clik on the last circle on the bottom left of the window. (the logo look like 2 square and a line between)

Now you have your enveloppe box, select the device you want to automate : "looper"
and then, in the box just behind, select the parameter you want to automate : "State"
that's the only way to find it, you can't see it on the looper itself, mayebe that's why you didnt find it.

Then you have to drag the pink line to set the state of the looper for this clip : Stop fort the first, rec for the second, play for the last.

Hope this help.
