I use Ableton to make very elaborate DJ mixes - can be thousands of individual clips in the set.
One of the things I would love to do would be to be able to copy parts of those mixes, together with automation, and paste them into another set while keeping the automation. When I paste into a different set, all the automation has disappeared.
Doesn’t seem to be possible - have tried lots of different suggestions - it seems like the kind of thing that should be possible. Would save me hours and hours of heartache if I could crack this!
I think if you have an arrangement on screen and have it saved, then all you do is cut away the two sections not wanted, leaving required audio channels with envelopes intact and any channel processors in place. Then save them to the project parent folder in a loop folder, assign new name. This folder would have loads of .als files inside. Drag n drop from the side panel when the loop folder is in ‘places’ box. If the automation is greyed out when loaded into arrangement view just hit the backwards arrow to re-enable, at top of screen.
