THIS IS ANOTHER LEVEL OF WORKFLOW…
If you’ve ever wished that you could edit multiple MIDI clips at the same time just by selecting them and seeing their piano rolls combined, well now you can!
“If you’ve grown tired of switching back and forth between Live MIDI clips trying to match note positions or figure out which note is the clunkier in separate harmony tracks, Chaos Culture MultiClip Editor from Isotonik Studios will pay for itself the first time you use it”
– SOUNDONSOUND MAGAZINE
Welcome to MultiClip, a MaxforLive device that allows you to edit multiple MIDI clips in Ableton Live simultaneously in the same window!
A lot of workflow mechanics are similar to Lives MIDI editor, you won’t have to relearn anything, in fact this is probably the easiest learning curve of any device yet…
Whilst we await eagerly any news of Ableton Live 10 we’ve thought of a few new feature improvements and implemented them within the MultiClip Editor such as a second pencil tool, which creates a longer note instead of a couple of shorter ones and the ability to hide pitches that aren’t included in a specific scale.
With the settings configuration so you can save all your own preferences your workflow just got boosted to light speed!
And with the latest version we’ve also enhanced the MIDI editing functionality taking our inspiration from other DAW’s like Cubase and Logic. Simply select some notes and use your chosen MIDI Modulator:
- Transform loop: Loops all or only selected notes. The time selection, which can be changed in the timeline, can be used to use as a reference. Pitch and velocity can be offset per iteration
- Transform stretch: Stretches all or selected notes by multiplying or dividing their positions and lengths to a custom value. The note lengths can be ignored.
- Quantize time: Quantizes all or selected notes to the current grid. Additionally to the default quantization note end positions or lengths (relative to start position) can be quantized as well. Amounts and rounding rules can be set to minimize quantization errors.
- Quantize scale: If a scale is active (settings) the pitch of all or selected notes will be quantized to fit the scale.
- Chord inversion: This modulator will go through chord inversions to get as close as possible to a custom MIDI pitch value. This also works with microtonal scales.
- Utility pitch limit: All or only the selected notes will be transposed (per octave by default) to fit into a custom pitch range. Microtonal scales are also supported.
- Utility velocity limit: Limits the velocity of all or selected notes to a custom range. Curve options are available as well.
- Utility seamless loop: Finds notes that are overlapping with the start and end positions of the clip or the time selection and copies them to the other side to create a seamless loop.
- Selection (Pitch / Velocity / Clip / Random): The Selection modulators will select or deselect notes. You can replace, add, subtract and intersect similar to picture manipulating applications.
– Added split function: Press “split” in the toolbar or the “s” key to activate it. Now you can press on any note to split it in two (by using the grid or without using it). In the settings you can have it deactivate automatically, but by default you have to deactivate the split mode manually.
– Added join function: After selecting at least two notes, press “join” in the toolbar or the “j” key to connect them. There can be space between the notes and by default the resulting velocity will be an average out of all notes that are joined together. This can be changed in the settings though.
– Added selection modulators “Position” and “Length”.
– Added a modulator preview function. Hold the cmd key (ctrl on Windows) and the “Apply” button for the modulators will turn into a “Preview” button. Pressing it will update the notes to Live while keeping the modulator active so you can listen to the modulator and keep tweaking parameters. Note that you have to “Apply” the effect to save the changes.
– Improved mouse interaction and vector graphics.
– Bugfix: The setting “observe live position” would only change after reloading the device.
– Bugfix: Pressing the spacebar to play back the Liveset would cancel an active modulator.
