New Shortcuts in Ableton Live 10

There are a lot of tutorial videos about Live 10 out there by now. No one has looked into the new shortcuts though, that combined will make the workflow in Live 10 a lot smoother. So since this is my thing, I've made a tutorial about all of the newly added ones. I'd recommend learning the shortcuts as soon as you start working with Ableton Live 10. It'll save you a lot of time in the long run.


Questions or suggestions? Or did I forget anything? Let me know in the comments below.

There are plenty more Ableton Live tutorials where this one came from.

    Thanks for this video. I was wondering if the loop selection also work on a clip basis. What I mean is instead of selecting an area, selecting a clip then hit cmd+L loop on that clip?

      Yes, this works with whatever you select in the Arrangement View.

        Great! Had lost this possibility switching from Logic to Live.

    Hi guys thanks for useful info about shortcuts , have a question , have u ever used some sample packs for ur Ableton projects from here?

      No, I’m using real instruments, synths, field recordings and my voice for music, so I have no need for sample packs. And btw, there’s not one guy here. I’m the only one doing Sonic Bloom and I’m a woman, as should be pretty clear from the video.
