    Sadly this function is not available in Ableton as you can only have one MIDI clip edit window open at a time.

    If you could edit MIDI in the arrangement view this would be possible and very useful. I suspect this will happen sometime.

    It may be possible to use Max MSP to create a multi track MIDI edit window but I don't know enough about Max to be sure.

    I believe the functionality moondancer is missing is the one from Cubase where it is possible to select multiple midi clips. Then in the Piano roll the notes from the selected clips are displayed and can be edited simultaneously.

    Since this is really handy, I hope similiar feature will be added in a future version of live.

    Another +1. The way it is done in Reaper and Studio One is you select the clips you want to compare, with all clips appearing in the same piano roll, and the clip being edited has normal notes, with the inactive clips transparent and muted. In Live maybe another color could be used, you could have a selection of clips and their colors could be the colors used in this mode, and you just select from the palette of clip colors from a small chooser to enable the frontmost track. It seems totally doable and would really compliment Live.

    +1... it's kinda odd Live came to the 9th version without adding this feature. It is the only one thing i am dramatically missing from the likes of Cubase, and the one that will eventually make me shift to a new DAW if it comes near Live in terms of useability (Bitwig maybe?). Please at least release a Max patch! you know, usually harmony is used in music production...

    what do you want to do exactly?

    are the clips on the same track?

    what do you want to edit? notes? envelopes?

    do you want another track to get the same midi information as an other one?
