Record & Overdub MIDI Clip on Scene Launch Issue / Live 9
Apologies if this has been touched on already, but I was wondering if anyone else has noticed the following and if there's a solution or workaround for it:
Say I have 7 Audio tracks and one MIDI track, each track loaded with scenes of audio clips, and MIDI dummy clips on the MIDI track for each Scene.
In Live 8, you used to be able to Launch the scene and, provided you had this setting enabled in your Preferences, on Scene Launch have the MIDI track begin recording, provided it's armed. If you'd set, say, 4 bars on the MIDI clip, you should then be able overdub MIDI notes into it. You'd be able to go down each Scene Launch and every time you Launched a Scene, that empty MIDI clip would begin recording and you'd be able to overdub it.
In Live 9, it doesn't appear to work that way. You have to hit Session Record, and this will enable Recording and Overdubbing, but the difference is that it immediately begins recording, regardless of whether you're ready or not, and if you stop it, it gets deactivated and you can't simply overdub MIDI on scene launch.
Hopefully, I'm just missing something, but has anyone else noticed this, and does anyone have a workaround or solution?
