Using BBC Core in Ableton

I've just watched Christian Henson recording a MIDI line via Logic, then effectively overdubbing articulation after the effect. Can this also be done in Ableton – ie live and without laborious manual automation?

    Hi @Christine !

    Yes, you can do this in Ableton. Christian is overdubbing the MIDI clip with Dynamics automation in the section you are referencing.

    Depending on which version of Live you are on, there may be more than one way to do this. Check section 16.3.1 of their manual here.

    In particular, point number 3 in which the "+" icon in the transport is described. This is the MIDI Arrangement Overdub button and, when enabled, will add MIDI information to a track while recording rather than delete and re-record.
