I have an MSI PC that I run tracks and various Native Instruments patches through Ableton 9. I plug them into my Track Rig along with a NanoKontrol.

My QUESTION is can my keyboardist, who is running Mainstage on his Mac somehow also connect to my PC running Ableton?

My thinking was that the Track Rig would recognize all devices and sync up his Mac with my PC. Any thoughts?

I am a beginner using ableton. I recorded many songs backgrounds each one has a loop . I need to find a way I can combine these songs together do they can be played without a stop, but at the same I need to keep the loop in each song. Can this be done in Ableton? If not do you recommend another softwares. I appreciate any help

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!!

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!
