I am working on a project with a guitar input to ableton, it is processed by guitar rig.
I then have two other channels that are taking their input from the guitar channel, post
mixer so that I can record clips on these channels, whilst keeping the guitar channel
available for playing. The guitar channel is set to input monitoring, the clip recording
channels are set to no monitoring, as per usual for this sort of setup. At first it all
seems to work, but at some point, when I record a clip, and then switch it to play mode,
no sound comes out. The clip is playing, I can see the bar counter cycling round, but no
audio comes out. All tracks are set to master for audio output and all other tracks
continue to play.
If I drag the clip to another channel, suddenly I can hear
it. However, drag anything into the guitar clip channel and no sound comes out, although
it appears to continue playing. If I delete the track and make a new one with identical
settings it will work as expected and will play the clips, then at some point it will stop
passing audio again after I record a new clip.
I am recording fairly long
clips, minimum of 24 bars, although I'd hope this wouldn' cause this behaviour. I am using
Bomes midi translator to get the control I need from my controllers so i hope there isn't
some weird error in my programming here that would cause this. But I don't know of a way
to MAKE ableton mute a channel, without actually muting a channel. There is no additional
processing on the clip recording channels at all.
I have a run of
performances starting in 4 days that depends on this working, so help is really needed.
