controlling automation with midi

Post by drewbixcube » Sun Oct 08, 2006 5:26 am

Hey all,

I saw this on youtube but there is no audio to go along with it:

It looks like a tutorial video on how to control automation with a midi track within LIVE itself. Anyone know how to do this?

Thanx,
-Drew

search about dummy clips -

the basic idea being having midi notes in a midi clip looped back into the program via either midiyoke (pc) or IAC (mac)

these midi notes can then be assigned to the program's midi mapping and can control things like the channel mutes, which you see happening in that video
