Is it possible to control the transport using clips or scenes?
I'm running a live set in Ableton where I step through the scenes of the set using a MIDI controller. There are two points in the set where I'd like to stop the transport from running, because:
1. I want to perform a loop in Looper, and then start the clock based on that loop so additional loops can be quantized to the first loop's grid.
2. I want to perform off the clock, then bring in a backing track later which I can then perform quantized loops against.
I can do all this already, but I have to remember to hit a "stop" button at that moment in the set. If I forget to do so, the following loop performances will be ugly and messy on-stage and I'll have to recover. I'd love to just hit my "next scene" button like I always do and have the transport stop at the appropriate moment.
Is this possible? If not, is it possible with Max4Live?
