How to sync different lenghts in instrument racks ?


How to set that all loops in chain list (even if they have different lengths with different bpm´s) can be looped equally?

I mean I have 2 loops of 8 bars, one of 12 and one of 16 bars.

In MIDI note editor I made MIDI clip long 16 Bars in loop mode.

How can I do that all 4 loops can be looped in whole range? 

Should I deactivate loop key in each sample to get what I want?

    This functionality is not available, and I hope that Ableton somehow does get this to work someday, but for now you are stuck with having to make all of the clips the same bpm in the arrangment view, then putting them into their respective drum sample or simpler slots.

    Hi Michael!

    I was thinking to do something like that, but when I tried it was heard scratches because Gong and Singing Bowl Sounds has a lot of ovrtones.

    Yesterday I tried another way, but I don´t know if it will work.

    I sliced audio file to midi and I will try to work it in that way if it works..

    Thanks Michael!
