  1. Lock Envelopes To Song Position:

    Great tip but it would of been even better if it were put it context e.g. if we had heard what the sound of the automation envelopes was like before and after than I could get my head around your concept.

  2. I agree with the first comment. Having context and noticing the difference before and after definitely helps the viewer understand the full potential.

    Awesome tip by the way, I’ve been using Ableton for a while and it’s tips like these that definitely makes me say to myself “WHY DIDN’T I KNOW ABOUT THIS BEFORE!” haha.

  3. This is fantastic! I’ve been using Live for around 10 years and I still learn new tricks and workflow shortcuts. Thanks so much!
