‘Did you Know?’ Pt 6 – Ableton Live Tips w/ Thavius Beck: Set the Scene

In our new Ableton Live video tutorial series, “Did You Know?”, Ableton Certified Trainer, Dubspot Instructor, and electronic musician Thavius Beck checks out less explored and slightly hidden features in Live.

Last week, we looked at how removing Stop buttons in the Session view combined with launching Scenes can help you when testing out different ideas for arrangements.  This week, we will look a bit more at what is possible with scenes by editing the Scene Launch Tempo as well as the Scene Launch Time Signature.

These two options can be extremely helpful if you want to set up a live set using stems of completed songs.  Each Scene can be comprised of stems from your songs, and then you can set the specific tempo and time signature for each scene/song.  That way you can have control over individual tracks within a song (for effects, panning, volume, etc.) but still be able to launch all the stems associated with a song at once at their proper tempo and time signature.  It’s simple and effective. Yet another thing revealed by a simple Right-click of the mouse! - Thavius Beck
