I am trying to make the switch to Ableton, but I've had this issue in Prime as well. How do you get the Ableton metronome to follow a track that slows down in part of a song? For example, In Christ Alone by Passion, at the end of the song there is a ritardando. How would you get the click to follow that? Is it just trial and error with automation?

is there no way to rename an existing setlist? I've got a somewhat complicated rearrangement of "revelation song" and I tire of redoing it every time we do that song so I've taken to calling up the last setlist where we used it and then modifying that setlist. Problem is, I can't rename it to the current date (or whatever). So if I can't rename a setlist nor save a particular arrangement of a song - is there any other workaround to accomplish this that I'm missing (and if the answer is "we're working on that for a future update" - great and thank you)

Does Prime read external midi clock info? I’m hoping to be able to send midi clock to control Prime in order to use the arpeggiator and/or drum tracks on my keyboard in sync with Prime tracks. This would be such an awesome ability!!

We do not have a dedicated in ear monitoring system for our church yet .... so we use metronome apps on the app store with Ableton link capabilities so we play to a click but tracks on ly come out of the house ..... anyone else do something like this ?

The upcoming macOS 10.15 update will prevent Ableton Live 9 from opening. The last officially supported version of macOS with Live 9 is macOS 10.13 (High Sierra). If you want to continue using Live 9, we strongly advise not updating to macOS 10.15.

I've been trying to use the feature in Ableton 10 to export directly to mp3, but it appears that the output is very slightly shifted in time. I use midi click in Ableton, so the slightly shifted mp3 files are slightly off of the click. Anyone else noticed this issue?

So we've been using prime since the release of the Mac app. It's great minus one issue that I thought was just the way the program ran until this weekend. When using looptimus to fire tracks there is a 2-3 second lag from the time the switch is hit until the track actually fires. I assumed that was just how prime worked until I ran a different keys setup this weekend and used a different midi controller to fire tracks. In my office the tracks fired instantly. But then when I got to the church and set everything else up the lag was back. Same cables used in my office and all. It is a different interface at the church (scarlett 2i2 in my office and scarlett 18i20 at the church). Is this lag normal or is there something else I am missing here?

Looking to purchase Ableton for the primary purpose of controlling our lyrics with music cues. Will the Intro version do this or do I need to purchase Standard? The Intro version would accommodate our needs for using tracks, but I haven't been able to find if it will do the ProPresenter aspect as well. Thanks!

I'm pretty sure I've done this before...when I didn't want to...and it actually caused problems for me, but now I'd like to actually use this "feature" if possible. While editing the markers on a file I uploaded I want to move one of my markers to beat 3 of a 4/4 measure. Currently, it keeps snapping to the beginning of the bar. Is this possible?

I have been very pleased with PRIME...I especially like the fade in/out options. Thank you for your work. I am having a problem with tracks that I import into PRIME. I have several that the click and/or cues do not match the rest of the track. It is not exclusive to any other track provider. It has happened with lifewayworship.com and multitracks.com tracks. I have tried to delete tracks from the cloud and then download again. Wondering if there is something I can do to remedy this situation?
