When you’re working in the Arrangement View with various time signatures and want to add some bars in the beginning or in between, simply moving the parts to the right can give you weird results with the time signatures. This tutorial shows you a quick way to avoid this problem.
Questions and other comments are as usual welcome, of course.
More Ableton Live Quick Tips.
The color skin in the video looks cool. How did you make it and where can I get that?
There’s an app called Ableton Live Skin Editor for this. You can get it here. There are plenty more to choose from, too. 🙂
Hi Madeleine, yesterday I found Sonic Bloom. Cool website. I see a lot of interesting information. Thanks for sharing. Greetings from Colombia.
Thanks, Pablo. Greetings back from Berlin. 🙂
Nice little tip! I work with odd time signatures all the time. Any idea how to embed them into scenes? i.e. I may want a scene to have 2 bars of 4 and a bar of 7… Been trying to figure this out for months.
Anyway, great site – always useful info. Thanks!
While the length is determined by the clips, you can write the time signature into the scene name, e.g. 7/8 and Live will change it accordingly.
