    It’s a HUGE chunk of time takin out. Plus it kills creative energy for me sometimes. I mean, if I REALLY WANT that melody, it will come out. But if I’m trying to just move things and play to come up with something creative. It’s freakin annoying

    OK, I see your point then ! That must be painful :-) . If I were you I’d buy a keyboard controler

    why would it slow you down if you are programming alot of notes double clicking can potentially slow you down more in the long run…i mean 3 mins ago i just sequenced a non looping huge vamp containing 64 chord changes over the course of 16 bars …all done by double clicking i could have saved a good chunk of time and finger power by ctrl-b haha but then im stuck in my ways

    Seriously ? Pressing Ctrl+B slows you down ?! :-) Still, I kind of agree with you, but after a few hours, you don’t even think about it !

    Ctrl-B switches between Edit andd Draw mode. I am running Live 8 and this program is brilliant! The pre-installed software is like no other.

    I’ve herd they’ve done a lot. Maybe I need to try it before I complain. But one simple thing which I don’t think they’ve vixed yet is a simple request by many of us. One click to insert and move the note. Very simple. No doube clicking when not in draw mode. No having to switch to draw mode and back to edit the note. Just click, move, resize, delete in a very simple manner. It slows me down SO much when I have to go to the piano roll to compose. After that though it does everything right

  18. dennisdesantis Says:

    Actually, the piano …
    Actually, the piano roll has been substantially overhauled in Live 8. MIDI editing is dramatically improved, with lots of new key commands, an insertion cursor, etc. Try it out….

    Even he doesn’t use the draw mode in ableton for midi notes. ABLETON!!! FIX THE PIANO ROLE ALREADY. It’s the one thing in composing that puts the holds on creative movement. Otherwise Ableton is bloody briliant.

    Ableton live is just that easy to make music, for me its the best software to create your musical ideas faster than a regular DAW, this DAW is easier to learn and faster to create your stuff, just look at the end part once your record your idea in the session view you could go in the arrangement and polish your work even more Just like what Denis said and Denis has a fat degree in music and sound design he has a PHD degree.

    The red square is what the APC 40 throws over the session view to show what clips are currently active — that is, what clips are mapped to the buttons on the APC.

    I like how the warp feature now changes the graphic of the waveform.
