Rescanning User Library in live 9
So that the files deleted manually with Finder register
In preferences change the location of the User Library to any different folder then change it back.
Now it will read all the files again and display correctly.

this is a small thing but useful

If you have been warping tons of clips and the warp markers need to be saved

u no have to save them individually.

shift select the lot. The save button is still active on the 'generic' clip view. You can save all of them at once

perhaps obvious, but it would have saved time had I known this earlier today :|

Found out by accident that you can scroll the mixer and arrangement view left and right with holding ALT + CMD + Left Mouse Button.

This saves so much time because you don't have to zoom.

No, you don't. Copy value to siblings is always available. Map to siblings is only available if thus enabled.

(Selecting multiple clips transposed at different values, and changing their transposition in one go. But mostly I posted this just for the Pac-Man charm. Hehe.)

I just wanted to share that i love my logitech g510 keyboard as it has 18 macro buttons of which you can assign keyboard strokes or even record a sequence of keyboard strokes. It's sped up my flow heaps :)

if you are using multiple samples in sampler...you can use the "key zone" +- to create some randomization and glitches

in sampler i like to put a little S&H LFO on your cymbals...and route it to sample offset....then put it on retrigger...and just maybe 5%, this then changes the start point of the sample just slightly at random every time the note comes....adds some depth
