Metronome volume control?

HI,

 I have recorded a song for a vocal ensemble with several tracks on it.

 They need to have the metronome on while they are singing to stay together, but it is really loud. How do I change the volume of just the metronome?

 thanks, Alison

    In session view locate the master track.

    There will be a blue icon that looks like a set of headphones.

    Use that icons knob ad adjust the volume of the metronome like that.

    Hello Alison, If You're using the Ableton push device you could hold the SHIFT key on the device (which is on the bottom right hand side)while HOLDING the Shift KEY Turn the knob associated with the master volume.  The first knob on the top right of the push.  Or in session mode you can go directly to the master track, and on the bottom you will see a icon that looks like a pair of headphones and above it is a virtual knob with a blue tracer.  That will give you the ability to change the metronomes volume.

    A question for Sebastian, What if you're not using the Ableton push device, but Ableton live 9 standard on your PC?

    The simplest alternative for OP is to create his own metronome / drum track if he wants the rest of Cue volume to be the same. The master and return tracks seem to be for fast access and noob-level stuff (that's where the cue volume is), but you don't really need them if you set up your own custom routing and wiring -->

    Each track can pull Audio From another source, you just have to have Monitor In turned on, or Monitor Auto with "Record Enabled" which kinda means it's actively sampling. Audio Compressors can also pull Audio From other places (useful in Audio Effect Rack chains for combining / crossfading multiple sources).

    What I do is use a Launch Control XL controller with a pseudo-master track on lane 8, and my System sounds from Ext. In on track 7. You can use Loopback (Audio Hijack is dope too) or a Mac's default Audio Midi Setup --> New Aggregate Device to route any apps through System (Ableton).

    I do this for a low cut and 5 band EQ for every track's primary device... which is just way more customizable than my analog mackie mixer (still good for restraining my BX8s even though they have breathing room finally :D). Dedicated knobs for chorus and reverb sends, thinking to re-route them back to pseudo tracks so I can tweak on the launch control with the device integration and navigation stuff they include. Also if you've been collecting music for years, check out BeaTunes and "New Matchlist" based on similar song color. Awesome way to DJ with a digital midi mixer
