      I don’t have one specifically about warping. I’m going to cover it in my Clip Module, though. If you’d like more info on that, make sure to sign up to the email list!

    Thanks SOOOOOOOO much for taking the time to post such informative and valuable music production information!!!! I just watched your vid on midside eq-ing and now not only feel like I understand it, but I can apply what you showed me to get my mix sounding how I want!! I’ve always heard those terms and didn’t really understand them until ynow! You are a gentleman, and a scholar…apparently (I read your post about your PhD dissertation) Awesome job man, the information on this site is priceless!!! Thanks so much!

    Hey Anthony
    Thanks for your good work!
    I have followed your series of clips and I have some questions:
    I play livesessons with some guys with my new instrument – Ableton Live :-)
    I have prepared 15-20 pieces of music and I want to ask you how to set it up? I do not want the music to stop at any time, eg some ambient clips between music pieces.
    The songs are running at different tempos.
    I also want to play midi keyboard with ready-made different sounds on different pieces.
    I want to execute the music in Sesson view.
    Where should I put oneshots?

    The best greetings
    Jens Brygmann – Denmark

      Jens, There are a few options.

      For the pieces of different tempo, you can either leave them unwarped, or you can rename the scene that the clips are in so that the name of the Scene (not Clip) is something like “80bpm.” When you trigger that scene, the global tempo will change.

      As for playing one shots, I would say, assign them to a couple totally separate tracks and either 1) leave them unwarped or 2) turn the quantize of the Clips to “None.” This parameter can be found in the “Launch” section of the Clip view. Then map them on your MIDI keyboard.
