Device Details


Name | Version: Pickup Notes 1.0.1
Author: dennisdesantis
Device Type: Audio Effect
Description: Pickup Notes manages the quantized launching of audio or MIDI clips that don’t begin on downbeats. Any clips assigned to the device will launch precisely in time, but earlier than the next downbeat as determined by how much earlier the start marker is from either the loop start (or the loop end if the start marker is within the loop).

version 1.0.1
- fixed a bug that caused the device to not work if the Live Set contained only one clip

Dennis, that is simply awesome!
Now you just need to harass everyone at the office for this feature to be implemented in L12 :-)
This is awesome! And now I want the opposite of this too, where it plays out the tail to the end marker when you stop a clip.
oh yeah this is phatt
Awesome, just what I've been desperately missing since first starting out with Live.
great work thanks
Where do I put the device? I already have it in the user folder but where to I drag it to?
Ok got it working as you described. However its not what I expected.

My master follow actions to control scenes. I thought that a clip in the next scene would be activated BEFORE the defined number of follow bars according to the start/loopstart difference, so as to pickup the notes.

The clock is on as you said but it doesn't work with follow actions.

Good catch. Indeed, it doesn't work with scene follow actions. It DOES appear to work with clip follow actions, which I'm actually surprised by. I never really tested this.

I don't think it's possible to make this work with scene follow actions. The device depends on some very particular properties of clips, and I don't think this can be adapted to also work for scenes. I will take a look and see if I can figure out a solution.

Thank you for this, Dennis! Woohoo! This is briiliant. I wish I found it about 2 years ago :)
