    iv got another useful tip, open up live assign your transport master volume cue, tap tempo. return to arrangement, metronome on off, etc. then go into preferences, file folder tab and hit save at the top to make this the default live set.

    Question: Chopping up a WARPED sample to Drum Rack, so it keeps the warped speed and pitch in relation to the new song tempo, and can be played from an MPC style pad controller?

    Answer: I struggled with this one until I finally got how it's done. Normally, if you take an audio clip (even if it's Warped) and choose "Slice to new MIDI track", it loses the Warp (pitch, speed) info and just splits it as it is. This way it is usually not in the tempo of the song anymore.

    1. Make up your mind about the tempo of the song and stick with it.
    2. Warp the audio clip or sample to your liking (change algorithm to Complex for instance, and change pitch for example). Change Warp Markers if you need to.
    3. FREEZE the clip. ('Freeze track').
    4. FLATTEN the clip.
    5. Then select 'Slice to new MIDI track', using your favorite slicing preset.
    6. You should now be able to play the chopped sample

    Example here: Download mp3

    This is also possible by consolidating if I'm not mistaken
    Right click the audio in arrangement view and consolidate

    Slightly different from the freeze/flatten method in the sense that it only renders the audio clip (or several) with whatever alterations (edits, warp markers etc.) and leaves the possible effects on the track as they were.

    But can you play it on an Akai MPD or a Korg padKONTROL, if using this method instead?

    My workflow in Ableton is usually like this: record a bunch of clips in Session View, copy and layer them into different sections of the song as Scenes, and then record the song in Arrangement View by triggering Clips and Scenes. Unconventional, maybe, but it just works.

    Of course - it's just a merged clip. Freeze/flatten just works on the whole track level instead of an individual clip (or several).

    I love warping now, it really does take months and months of practice.
