Default quantization settings

Hi all,

is there any possbility to have default quantization settings and grid size settings

when I set up new project I always have to customize the grid size and quantization again and again.. It would be nice if in piano roll there will be 1/16 and sequencer beats quantization 1/16 as default and some wide settings of the grid.


I think the only way is to save project as template and use it for any other new project?

    Hi Thak, 

    Your assumption is correct, building a template set would be the only way to achieve this in Live. 

    On a side note, any setting that can be applied via the menu bar is saved for the set, any setting which you can alter via options -> preferences is saved globally. 

    Hope this helps,
