Why can't I get the music playback head to jump to the place where I click on the timeline?
I have played around with Ableton for a bit, but I still haven't gotten over the hump of being slowed down by technical inexperience...
My latest frustration arises from a mundanely simple task. When attempting to warp tracks (especially from live music, which tends to include inconsistent rhythms) it is immensely useful to be able to jump to a different position in a song. I used to be able to accomplish that by clicking in top half of the waveform representing that song, which appears in a preview box at the bottom half of the live screen when that song is active (ie selected in the scene view). Now this no longer works, however.
When I click in the place that used to let me jump to a particular position in the audio clip, a red line appears at that point, but playback of the audio clip does not jump to that position.
Does anyone know what I can do to fix this, and get back my scrubbing capability???
Any help or suggestions will be greatly appreciated! Thanks!!!
