Ableton Live: Working with Scenes

Learn how to transfer material from Ableton Live’s Arrangement View into Session View scenes for live performances and remixing.

Consolidate Time to New Scene

In this Ableton Live tutorial, Chris Gibson demonstrates how to convert arrangements into scenes for live performances and remixing. Learn how to use the ‘Consolidate Time to New Scene’ command to consolidate material within a selected time range in the Arrangement View to create a new scene of clips in Session View. This feature makes it easier to transform your studio masterpieces into perfect live performance sets. It is also an efficient way to move material from the Arrangement to Session View.

Tempo Changes

Chris also shows you how to change the global tempo of your music using scenes. Scene names can be both descriptive and functional. For example, if you rename a scene with a viable tempo and/or time signature, Live will automatically adjust to these parameters when the scene is launched. To assign a tempo, select the scene and rename it with a tempo such as 110 BPM. To assign a time signature, rename the scene with an appropriate meter such as 4/4.
