Best Practices for Ableton Transport Control (The Bridge).
- Live Versions: 8.2 - 9
- Operating System: ALL
Certain aspects of Ableton Live's functionality are limited when using Ableton Transport Control, and may behave in unexpected ways. In particular, Live will not output audio while its transport is moving backwards. This means that backscratching in Serato Scratch Live will discontinue Ableton Live's playback. If you are recording in Ableton Live while backscratching, recording will also be stopped.
Relatedly, any devices in your Ableton Live Set that require a constant stream of incoming audio (such as Looper and certain Max for Live and third-party plug-ins) will work incorrectly if Live's transport plays backwards.
