Have you ever had Red Light Fever? It’s the concept of performing your part perfectly before a recording, only to then get too nervous to ace the performance once the engineer hits record. If this sounds like something you or someone you work with has experienced, Ableton Live’s Capture MIDI feature will prove to be of great help. It intelligently allows you to recall a MIDI part you’ve been experimenting with before you even hit record.
In this Ableton Live Tutorial, Liam O’Mullane demonstrates how this feature can help you create new elements in your track and some good practices to follow to make the most of it.
