Hotcues for different views

Post by yentzee » Tue Jul 24, 2018 8:10 am

Hi,
as the arrangements go a bit messy from time to time I was wondering the followi g things:

Is there a way to reduce the height of groups when folded? The more tracks grouped the heigher the folded groups get. Pretty annoying.

2. Can I save / define hotcues for different views (e.g. hotcue 1 = everything folded except busses, hotc 2 = everything folded except drums etc)?

ClyphX Pro - VZOOM ALL -100 ; "Drums"/SEL ; WAIT 2 ; VZOOM 10

Which assuming you have a track called drums would collapse all tracks and then expand the Drums track...

You'll find details in the View Section of the manual.

Hi for the first one you simple drag the group hight up and down or hit S to fold them all

But yeah if you have say 30 tracks in there it does need the space to show the clips.

There's a fully detailed manual and plenty of videos to get you started on the page, once you're into it you'll wonder how you managed without...

It does look quite complicated. I suppose there is a way to predefine everything in my live template?
Ideally I would have 8 keys (maybe even on a seperate keyboard) which allow me to "fold" every group and track except... so that I can keep overview fast and easy. I guess there are even more hotcues that might be worth defining but for now this is the most urgent. On their website I saw that is also allows automatic presetswitching.
Really interesting.

Thanks for the commands. What is happening if there are tracks with the same name (like hihat and hihat for example)? Will both be treated equally?

You should always name you tracks differently.

But I will be able to chose groups as well? In some cases in Live selecting groups isnt possible whereas selecting tracks is possible.

i believe the groups are affected by the track type. so you cannot create a group with audio and and MIDI tracks.

i could be wrong... i don't believe i've tried since Live 7. but effects and plugins would be hard to handle if you could as some would not work on certain tracks in the group.

you can group audio and midi together in live 10, also groups within groups.

If you mean ClyphX Pro then theres a forum to ask questions on, for ClyphX though your on your own as it\s no longer supported.
