Clips which start on previous beat's upbeat?

Hey guys!

 

Is there any way of having a clip which begins during previous beat, you know like in melodies where you have couple leading notes before the actual first downbeat of the clip?

I have found nothing but tedious workaround for this. I'm kind of baffled that a loop-based sequencer software lacks essential features such as this.

    I assume you're talking about session mode.

     

    You could change the clip launch quantization but it could be difficult to trigger clips on time.

    You could create a clip with silence preceding upbeat, and launch it one bar early.

    You could use follow actions.

     

     

    It would be nice if Ableton implemented a simpler way of doing this. For example holding shift and launching a clip could have it's own quantisation rule.
