One of the most requested features of Ableton is the ability to set follow actions that occur at a clip end rather than a predetermined time.
With our MaxforLive devices you can program automatic follow actions at clip end, and you can also trigger them at clip stop, define the clip number to be played next or even switch the Clip follow action to become a Scene follow action.
This device has been very popular with users who run backing tracks in Ableton Live for a Live band, and DJ’s who split full tracks into individual clips to allow for perfect phrasing of their mixes…
Working with both cropped and un-cropped audio you can even simply cue up the next Clip or Scene so that its ready to play.
To make things simple the pack contains separate versions dependent on your use case, Follow Clip works on clips and many can be used in a set with the Follow Actions it creates working solely on the track within which it’s located. Follow Scene on the other hand runs follow actions for scenes (which will also observe changes to signature or BPM if written into the Scene name) and works as a single device in a set controlled buy a click track that contains clips of the length you wish your scenes to run for.
Both give you the ability to write up to 8 additional options into the clip name that can be triggered to play next or immediately.
With each Clip that plays you can additional define up to five other Clips or Scenes that could be triggered at Clip End, these can then be queued up via MIDI giving almost endless possibilities for variety in your live performances.
The final piece of the jigsaw is the ability to set an action in hours, minutes and seconds and apply this to an unwarped clip.
