Question about clips



almost 8 years ago (edited)

I'm sure this is a very basic thing for those of you who know Ableton. Unfortunately it takes me awhile to figure out much of anything with computers. I have made some loops in Live. I have also downloaded a few tracks from this site. I see that in session view there are many audio clips that can be cued at any point individually. The loops I am making are just one long midi or audio clip that appears in arrangement view but not session view. There is something I am missing. How do I make my long clips into short individual clips that appear in session view? Thanks

You can copy and paste from Arrangement view into Session view. It will make smaller clips for you. Just Copy the section you want, and then Paste it into a blank clip slot in Session view!
