UPDATE: We’ve released Follow Scene FIVE, compatible with Live 10 and with new features, this update is free for all existing subscribers! We’ll continue with the updates to the manual and other versions of Follow and devices within the Modular series in due course…

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.

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.

Follow ARRANGE is a simple MaxforLive device for Ableton Live, you get a floating window that reads the current playhead position and gives three jump buttons for the locators positioned around it….

As each locator is passed the arrange loop brace is moved and sized to contain the current section so the Loop Brace can be turned on and off to repeat the current section or let it play through…

NOTE: Also available as part of the Modular Series

    I love this little tool or in other words – it’s one of the reasons why I use ableton live…
    I was looking for a tool, that can launch my multitrack sessions for a top 40 band and only start the next scene when the previous one is over… so I found the Follow Action for Scenses in a youtube video…
    But even better as the tool itself, is the support. I had problems with “stack overflows” – Don’t know if it’s a problem with my hardware setup or the software, but the support react DIRECTLY (I mean directly) and helped until the problem was resolved…
    So, now everything works fine, it’s easy to setup and I love it!!!!

    Follow is an amazing tool and one of the core plugins I use in every live performance set in Ableton to automate clip triggering (for the backing tracks/clips for example).
    It works so good that I sometimes forgot that its a plugin rather than a missing native feature and its very intuitive and simple to use.
    Give it a try – I am sure that you will love it!

    One amazing feature of Follow is it allows Session View to play in continuous Arrangement-like playback with ease. It is a great way to practice in Session and capture your creations in Arrangement. Follow has been a cornerstone to my default Live template for a while. Get it.

Q. What are the Minimum System Requirements?

A. Ableton Live 9.7 & MaxforLive 7

Q. What’s the Installation Process?

A. If the files provided end in .amxd then these should be downloaded and saved to a folder on your harddrive, the files can then either be dragged into your Live set with the mouse or you can add a file path to the folder they’re contained within in the Live Browser.

If the files provided end in .alp then these are Ableton Live Packs, double clicking them open will usually provide a warning regarding the files “Legacy” status, this is nothing to worry about, it’s just the only way we can make a pack that will install itself into your Live browser alongside the factory content.

Our Products are generally provided as Zip file downloads which in all cases will need to be extracted and saved to your hard drive prior to installation. Details on the different file type provided and what to do with them are below.

.alp Files – These are Ableton Live Packs and will install directly into the Packs Section of the browser of Ableton Live. When you double click on them you will see a pop up window asking you to confirm that installation is ok as the files are described as “Legacy”. This is fine and you are ok to proceed, the packs are created using the format for an earlier version of Live and so remain compatible with the current version.

.amxd files – These are individual MaxforLive Devices and can be stored anywhere on your hard drive. We’d advise creating a folder for them and then adding that folder as a location within the Places section of Lives Browser.

Control Surface Scripts – Please refer to the individual User Guides provided with your download, an abridged version of the installation will be shown further down this page.

ClyphX Pro – Please refer directly to the manual and installation video for this specific product.

Novation Circuit Packs – These are provided as individual Sysex Files and as a complete bank file. All are to be installed using a version of the Circuit Editor and not via Novations Components back up utility.
