Problem - When I lead from the keyboard. I use synth and piano sounds in Ableton. Let’s say I want to stop the track near the end of the song. Usually I press the space bar it stops everything, my problem is it also stops the notes being held out by the instrument tracks so I have to quickly play another chord. Not conducive to setting a worshipful atmosphere.
Solution - I assign another key on the computer keyboard/ midi controller to the track activator button essentially muting the backing track while keeping everything else playing. The reason is the Start/ Stop assigned to the space bar stops the message from the sustain pedal that is holding out the notes from the previous chord.
I was wondering if there was a better way?
