Re: Any experienced Ableton users able to give me a hand?

Mech - This is awesome! I took a sabatical from Live the past week because of my frustration with audio effect racks. I've been learning Bidule and with some help from the incredibly kind Per, I was up and running in no time. Using the simple audio switcher in Bidule is so much easier than the rack madness I was dealing with in Live but almost wish I didn't read your post because now I want to go back to Live to see if I can adapt my songs to using almost all send return channels:)

When you say your sending a parallel message to turn off effects would both be done with a midi clip? Since I only have the two expression pedals on the fcb and my hands are tied when I play I'm guessing midi clips would be the way to go to automate everything for me. Since I'll have four or return tracks with multiple send knobs on each one I guess you either automate them or you have Novation remote zero-like controller with a bunch of knobs that your able to use while you perform.

Thanks again, for helping see routing in Live in a new way. I need to re-read your post a couple more times to wrap my head around it. I've been painting past couple of days and I think the fumes are making me a little slower:)

Additionally, I've found it pretty easy to fire off MIDI clips to control the Send levels (amongst other things) of each effect.  You can come up with some wild synchronized effects by using clips to blast audio into different effects on different beats.  Or, you can come up with some insane tremolo-ized effects by automating the Send on and off faster than you could ever humanly work a foot pedal.

this is brilliant. gotta try it.

Thanks Warren!  I'd be interested in hearing what you come up with.  :)
