I currently have a song in Live where in the middle of the song the tempo slows down and live is no longer needed for a few bars. I would like this part to be independent of the live bpm. After these bars are up, the song continues onward using the original tempo. Can I setup the song to automatically stop in the mid section and then have my drummer hit play using a midi trigger when we are ready to start the next part?
Would it work for your needs if you midi-mapped a cue point where you want the track to stop, as well as the stop button? This way your drummer could stop the track with one midi trigger and then play from the mapped cue point when the drummer hits the second midi trigger?
OK, I found it. Live calls what we're talking about "locators." Search the manual for that and you'll find how to set, label, and remove them. You can also MIDI map to them. It's on page 76 in my copy of the manual.
