Hey Max4Live forum!
I have an Idea for an useful Abletonfeature, but I actually have no clue about programming with M4L, thats why I ask you guys if this would actually be possible.
I enjoy making music using this "microsampling" technique.
That means, you record many little samples of various synths and other samples and put them all in one drumrack to arrange them musically, which gets you this "choppy" sound.
(You can here the technique being used in this song by madeon: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y10sAvOCo9k&feature=player_detailpage#t=68s
The technique is really time-consuming:
-Create your sound using any synth or sampler
-Make a new audiotrack
-Record the sound
-Take the recorded clip and cut out the silent parts
-Put microsample into the drumrack
-Delete the created audiotrack
Wouldnt it be much more efficient and awesome, If you just have to holddown a hotkey on your keyboard, play synths or samplers etc. in ableton and all gets recorded in the background? When you release the hotkey, the recorded microsample automatically gets stored into a drumrack ready to being arranged?
I prepared a graphic, that maybe lets you understand the process better:
Do you think one can actually implement this feature in Live, using M4L or isnt this possible at all?
Thank you very much!
