Modes and Arrangements Sessions
In Ableton Live main musical elementsThey are clips. The clip is a piece of musical material - melody, drum pattern, bass line or even a whole song. Ableton Live allows you to record and edit videos and create musical structures from them: songs, games, remixes, DJ or DJ sets show for the stage.
In Live Sete has two environments that can hold clips: Mode Arrangements (Layout of clips along the time scale), and mode session (Start clips in real time). Each session has its own clip launch button, with which you can launch clips at any time and in any order. You can also configure the behavior of each clip after the launch.
If you are using Ableton Live in one window,You can switch between modes by pressing [Tab] or the selector in the upper right corner of the main screen. If you are using two windows, the key press [Tab] will move the Sessions regimes and arrangements between the two windows.
Arrangements and convenient treatment regime Sessionsinteract. For example, you can improvise with the clips in the session and record what is happening in parallel arrangements for further improvement. This works because Arrangement and Session are linked paths.
Tracks contain clips, as well as run streaming signals to create new clips by recording, sound synthesis, effects processing and mixing.
Session and Arrangement contains the sametrack. In track mode Sessions columns are arranged horizontally, and in mode Arrangements they overlap each other in the vertical time line, moving from left to right. A simple rule governing the behavior of the clips on the track: the track can simultaneously play only one clip.
Therefore, usually the clips must be replacedeach other in a vertical Sessions on a single track, and videos playing at the same time, spread over the paths in a horizontal row. This is called a scene.
Simultaneously, the track can play any clipsSessions only mode or only in the arrangement mode. When you start a clip in the session, the track stops play everything else. For example, if a track is played clip in the Arrangement, it will stop it in favor of the tracks in session - even when other tracks continue to play clips in the Arrangement.
The track does not return to the playbackThe arrangements until you press the Back to Arrangement, located on the master track in Session mode and in the upper right corner of the Arrange mode. This button lights up, when at least one track is not playing in the Arrange mode, but playing a clip in the Session.
You can click on this button, all trackWe returned to the playback in the Arrange mode. So it is in the Arrange mode, each track has its own button to return to playback Arrangements, which allows you to choose only a few tracks.
