Re: New user of Ableton seeks help using it to replace loop pedals

I just started using the Looper in Live and its pretty simple to use.  I trigger it with an FCB 1010 programmed to send Note values with feedback and speed to the pedals.  You can set the quantization to none, global or what not and also tell it how many bars to record (or none).  With one level of undo and nothing beyond basic overdub its pretty simple but I find it works pretty well.

Any specific questions?

pretty please... :)

I've not tried using LIVE's looping features but it would be interesting to see how others use it.

Do you use a FCB1010 for triggering?

What's the problem with Live's midi routing?

While it's possible to route midi to a plugin on a track it's
not intuitive. ..and then when the midi gets to your plugin it's all changed to Channel 1

I do have a HOWTO for sending midi to a plugin on an Ableton track,
(compiled with Per's help). If anyone needs that just ask.

Also, why would one have to mime the first loop?  Not doubting you, just not sure what you mean!

The Ableton looper doesn't let you set the tempo by tapping in the loop.
Workaround is to pre-record a first layer that works as a click track.

Consequently, miming the first loop is not unheard of.

But isn't that a bit over the top in this discussion answering a
person that wants to replace a Roland looping pedal with Ableton Live?

There's no such nifty MIDI routing at all on those pedals! :-)

but midi control is usually needed for software looping... yes?


Till now you seriously considered yourself to be the body and to have a
form. That is the primal ignorance which is the root cause of all trouble.
