In this section we introduce the Session View in Ableton with the Mixing Board, Clip Slots, Scenes, and Transport Controls. We will discuss basic mixing, and how to improvise with Audio Clips in the Session View.
Notes on the Session View -
A Creative improvisation Space made for getting initial ideas down quickly
Mixing Board features -
These include volume, panning, and effects controls. Keep your output levles below 0dB to avoid clipping. -6dB is a good starting level for volume faders.
These include Play, Stop Record.
Also included Metronome, Tempo and Global Quantizing for keeping your clips in sync.
Clips and Clip Slots-
Launch different clips to experiment with different combinations of sounds.
All clips in a horizontal row will launch together and in sync (if the clips are warped)
