I’m referring to the transition trick involving capturing a loop onto scene B while changing over to a different song on scene A. In the process of building a live set I have experimented with this and it works but I do not really want to sacrifice a track (Track 8 for master)
My particular use case is live looping guitar, vocals and keys mixed in with stems bounced from Ableton.
Curious what other transitions you all have come up with not involving the use of track 8 as a master and without capturing a loop.
I’m thinking you could keep one track running while switching, have an external source looping or do delay reverb effects for starters. Just some ideas and I’m sure those with more experience have some pretty creative tricks.
EDIT: I will add some ideas here as I think of them. (I’ll have to try them out to see how they work in practice)
Scene B keeps stems playing with a wash effect but fades out live loops allowing me to clear the loops. Then switch to next song while first song washes out.
Scene B keeps only a drum loop playing from current song allowing me to switch to next song.
Scene B fades to external instrument on a Thru track allowing me to switch songs.
