TIPS :recording automation in session/clip mode from Silicon

Post by Human Koala » Wed Mar 01, 2006 10:08 am

from EXT Forum

Silicon/Silicium says we could record real time midi controller in session mode in Ableton Live with EXT
i translate :
"you put your vsti in EXT, EXT in VSTI on a midi trax on Live. you open live, you open your EXT synth, file-->CC map, you choose the parameter you want automation recorded, learn ( you have to check if the midi input of the vsti is linked in EXT, and midi signal flow in Live trax ) for the parameter, close energy XT, record the pattern in session mode, play some note, tweak the slider assigned to the controller, and tadammmm miracle, its recording the slider's move whereas Live can't do it in native mode

thanx sil

recording automation in session / clip mode

Post by billpayer2005 » Fri Mar 03, 2006 10:26 pm

I can't believe this is the only method.

I'm trying to record automation in a clip in session mode and it will not overdub ANY midi automation.

We can overdub clips with notes but not automation whilst in session.
Am I missing something ?

Another work around is to record the clip into Arrangement with the automation (by hitting master record) and then dragging the clip back into session.

C'mon ableton, give us a check box...
record clip with/without incoming midi automation
