    Organizing Song Scenes
    Hey everyone! I've been working with Ableton Live 8 to enable my band to play with backtracks during our live performance. I've been doing this by putting each song into separate scenes in the session window. My question- is there a simple way to organize the tracks so they are synced up to play at the right time of the song? When I click play on the scene, all the clips are triggered at once. This means that a clip that I want to be triggered at, let's say, 2 minutes in will be triggered instantly. Unless I have 2 minutes of empty space before it. It's pretty time consuming to set it up this way-- and I like being more organized (so when I enter edit clip mode, it's just the sound, and not the empty space before it). Anyone know if that's possible?

    Hey walker, I'm not sure I completely understand what you are trying to do, but I do know that in clip view, the small arrow at the beginning of your loop brace can be moved to wherever you want that particular clip to start. Now, there are two arrows if you have loop activated, one on top of another. You want the one on the bottom. Just move that to where you need the clip to begin when launched and that should do the trick! Of course, what this means is that you would need to launch them manually when required, or you could use "follow actions" and set it up to launch on it's own exactly when you need it to. Of course, measure numbers or beats would be much easier to set vests actual times, like 2:00, et cetera... Jamie
