How to record audio clip envelope automation with midi controller
I really can't get this to work, don't know what I'm doin' wrong.
What I do:
- MIDI learn an audio clip / sample parameter like 'transposition'
- change the parameter with the controller live (that works)
- arm the track, arm automation record and session record
- play the clip to try to record the live changes I make to the clip 'transposition' parameter, in order to obtain a clip automation envelope of these changes
Unfortunately, the changes aren't recorded and so don't show up in the envelope editor.
I can only edit them manually. Seems that Ableton doesn't make a connection between the midi learned parameter and the envelope editor...
I'm also confused about how these parameter changes get recorded in the arrangement view. Looks like ableton cuts everything into small, somewhat quantized clips instead of recording the clip's parameter changes into an easy to edit automation envelope / lane.
I'm using Live 9.7 on Mac Os El Capitan, Edirol PCR800 midi keyboard...
