One thing I had always been missing in Live was a per-track peak level indicator. Frustratingly, not even Spectrum had that. Well turns out there is one, it's just not visible by default. Drag the divider between Send Section and Mixer Section upward in Clip View, and there it is! Not available in Arrangement View though, apparently. Drag it up even further and you get a numeric value for the track volume. Another thing I'd been missing sorely. This is saved in the project, so be sure to update your default template.


Another hint: The peak meter shows you the absolute peak, when you click the number, it resets to the current value
This peak number is immensely important for proper A/Bing tracks when you put effects like compression on it:

- Check the dB of the original signal, write it down or duplicate the track
- put in the compressor, turn output down so it's quieter than than the original (or the track volume if you've duplicated it)
- reset the peak meter
- now slowly raise the output / track volume until the peak meter show the same dB as the original
- now do A/B comparison
- if it sounds better, keep it

This will save you from using lots of compression or likewise effects because they just sound louder, not better.

maybe mentioned before but this just made my 3am:

turn on the headphone preview button in a midi clip, set another midi track to get input from that one, hit record on it, and when you drag to select different groups of notes with the mouse it will get recorded. cool way to turn aimless f*king around into recorded improvisation.

this works great with organs actually

This is more of a RTFM moment than a trick but hey.... When dropping a clip into the browser, older versions of Live would just make a clip with the original sample references, rather than a new project with copies of the samples. I just noticed you can go back to this behavior very easily in Preferences > File Folder by turning off "Collect Files on Export."
