New clip to inherit the settings of the clip above it

Post by LargeMedium » Sat Nov 20, 2021 7:34 pm

(I'm using a Push 1, but I imagine this pertains to Push 2 as well.)

I'm using Scene Workflow, Push 1, and Live 11.
When I press New on the push, then record into the new clip, I want the new clip to inherit the settings of the clip above it in the same track. In particular, I am using a GROOVE in all the clips in the session, and I want the new clip to have the same Groove automatically set.

Any help is appreciated.

... So to clarify
While in Session mode on the Push 1, I want my new clips to have the same groove applied as the rest of the set. (I already applied a groove to the rest of the already existing clips.)
Please let me know if any more info would be helpful.
Thanks!

...i do this by copying the clip into a new slot...this way the groove settings will be copied over to the new clip...

(Are you using Push?)
I'm hoping to keep a smooth workflow. I'd rather not have to duplicate a clip then go in and delete all the existing notes before I can start recording into this new clip.

…to avoid this i‘ve set up a dummy clip - meaning a blank clip with the groove setting - and copy this whenever i need it…and yes, i have a push2…

Thank you for your input. This is a fine work around, but while in a performance I want to keep my hands off the mouse. So I still am hoping for a way to have new clips that I create by hitting the *new* button on the push have the desired groove set up.

Can you not hold duplicate on the Push 1, hit the dummy clip, and then hit the pad you want it copied to?

Yes, I can Duplicate a [template] clip with push 1. But that means I'd need to always have one handy. Not so easy if I'm way down at scene 85. Very cumbersome for me.

Right. Gotcha....

I am sure you could do it with ClyphX Pro. And if you coupled that with Push Hacker 2 the world would be your oyster. It's a deep dark hole though
