I want to do make loops in Ableton live session view and use two tracks. Because of creativity reasons, I don't want to be bound to the metronome, so I switched it off the global launch quantisation.
Now I record the first track, and I can loop it perfectly. Then, I record the second track, which wont have to same length like the first track because quantisation is off, and it's very unlikely that I hit the record button just in time. It looks like this: One note: the tempo is set to 120 bpm, but as metronome and quantisation is off, that does not effect the music. The 10+ and the 6+ and the bottom of the tracks just indicate the relative length of the tracks with 120 bpm as a reference. When I press stop and play the following think happens: The fist loop is perfectly aligned, and it sounds like it should sound. But with the second loop, problems occur: As the Track 2 is shorter than Track 1, it starts early. Result: The Music is out of sync. That can be seen here: So what I am looking for: A solution that starts Track 2 everytime, when I start track 1. So that track 2 "waits" for track 1 to be finished before restarting. I was thinking of the "follow actions", but coundn't figure it out.
Any ideas to keep me in sync are very welcome!
Edit: My end-goal is to loop voices, and I love the session view, so my idea is to record e.g. 5 different voices without beat during recording. Then, I would like to enable/disable voices with MidiPads. And I would prefer a solution, where I dont have to use my computer keys for adjustment :)
