Hi all! So I've recently started using Ableton's Session view to build a master session from which to run all of my multitracks and loops from when playing live. I'm looking for some help with two key questions:
1) Can I transpose a song? If the multitrack I have is in G, and I transpose it to A in the arrangement view and then copy and paste all the tracks into my master session document, is it going to stay in A? Is there anyway you can transpose from within session view?
2) Similarly, let's say there's a certain part in a multitrack that I want to mute or lower in volume. In arrangement view I can do this using automation, but is there a way to do it in session view or bring the changes I made in the arrangement view into my master template? This might be particularly true for an electric guitar solo. I may have an electric guitarist who will play the solo live, but I don't want to mute the rest of pre-recorded electric part - only the solo. Can I do this? The only way I've found it to import the electric part in sections into my master document and then delete the audio containing the solo.
I'm using Live 9.
Thanks for sharing your knowledge!
