using the timer

Post by dain » Thu Dec 14, 2006 8:36 pm

I'm using ableton live to do live guitar loops, everything has worked great so far except that after 4 passes or so the loops start wondering off. I've had little luck fixing this with in ableton, but what would work is to use the timer in the midi translator so after each pass the clip's play botton is activated.
I've set the key stroke in ableton to 1 on the clips play botton and assigned that key to a midi pedal with midi translator, then I set the timer to 5 seconds, clicked multiple times and put in 100. then it does not work.

is what i am trying to do possible? The (non timed) midi translations work fine. Would enabling midi time code help out here? If all of this does work, will the timer stop when the track is stopped? Sorry for all the questions----

Hi, could you post your preset? either transcribe it to text, or open the .bmtp file in a text editor and copy paste it directly.


PS: it's gonna be difficult to let MT know when Live stops...
