Method 2 – Arrangement record
You can also trigger Session View clips on the fly and record the result directly into the Arrangement View. Ensure all tracks in the Session View are disarmed for recording, and that the Arrangement View’s Cycle mode is disabled. Hold down Shift and click the Record button in the transport bar – Live will wait until you trigger your first clip, then start recording your moves. As you jam out a performance, a corresponding set of regions will be recorded onto the tracks in the Arrangement View. This works especially well with a hardware controller. Once finished, press the Stop All Clips button in the master channel to end the recording and switch to the Arrangement View, where you can tweak the performance and complete your track by recording new parts, transition effects and percussive punctuation directly in at the correct points in the song.
