Do you still consolidate time into new scene using follow? I'm working with some original tracks from another source. I'm guessing that it works the same when you are using original tracks as well.
I'm honestly just running full tracks now instead of jumping around scenes... it's just easier, and I end up doing songs the same way most of the time anyways.
If I DO change it up for a "spontaneous" moment, its usually at the end of the song when the track is over anyways... So I let the track finish, then do a quiet down chorus or bridge.
My work flow has really changed since I started using Ableton in the beginning.
