A while ago I had asked, what blog topics you would be interested in. One thing that has been mentioned several times was advice for workflows. Since this is a subject matter I'm really into, I have compiled five video tutorials that show you improvements of work processes in Ableton Live.
Did you ever want to renumber the scenes so that the order makes sense again? Or did you ever wish the Follow button would just stay on despite you making changes? Well, if so, you're in luck, thanks to two Max for Live effects by Dennis DeSantis.
I'm back with an "Ableton Live 9 Quick Tips" tutorial that shows you two ways to create Scenes faster. Both come in handy e.g. when building a live performance set from scratch.
Let's say you want to play clips with different tempi and/or time signatures all in a Live Set in Session View. This can be useful for Live Performances as well as DJ-Sets. Scenes are great for starting a whole row of clips at the same time. However, there's a functionality hidden in the scene names.
When dragging and dropping multiple audio clips onto the grid, Live will by default add them all to one track. In Session View vertically, in Arrangement View horizontally along the timeline. There will be times though when you want them all in different tracks, added in the same scene (Session View) or at the same start time (Arrangement View).
