I've noticed that a lot of people don't use the User Library in Ableton Live. It can however save you a lot of time and effort in the long term. Here are four video tutorials that show you everything you need to know about the User Library. Including a small secret tip especially from me.
While saving presets in the User Library might be an old hat for you, this tutorial could still serve as a reminder to actually do it. It always gives some helpful tips on ordering presets in the User Library, so that you have quick access not only from within Live, but also Push and other MIDI controllers that offer this feature.
We've all come across videos in which someone creates a track on the fly against the clock. First it was an hour, then increasingly less time. And quite frankly, most of them are more like sketches or demos, unfinished and rough. Sure, it's possible to make a demo in 10 minutes, but a track worthy of being released? Not so much.
A lot of Ableton Live users have two computers, one for the studio, one for the stage. A student of mine once asked me how he could keep the User Library up to date on both computers without the hassle of doing it manually every time you make changes. Here's a neat way to achieve exactly this and even get an automatic backup as a bonus.
This second video tutorial of the three-part mini series about the User Library in Live 9 is concerned with the maintenance of the user library using the file manager. How to ensure that all files are present, but no longer used samples don't take up unnecessary space.
This is the first of two video tutorials that explain the User Library in Live 9. In it, I show you how the User Library works and what can be done with it within Live's Browser.
