I’m on 9.5, considering an upgrade to 10.5. And I’m trying to improve how I write tracks - figure out a workflow so I can concentrate on hooks and leads first, before getting lost in mixing (which is a problem for me).
I want to develop synth riffs, hooks etc using instrument tracks with inserts and MIDI data, then export MIDI Loops into MediaBay… reaching for something like Ableton’s “Save Clip” feature. But exporting to MIDI Loop doesn’t save track automation alongside MIDI data. In 9.5 the VSTi and MIDI are saved, but not the track automation (things like “Delay Insert Feedback Amount”, rather than MIDI CC automation).
Does anyone know if I’m missing an option or preference somewhere? It feels like the 9.5 version of the feature’s somewhat incomplete, because it saves way more than just the MIDI… but not everything. Is this something that’s been improved in 10 or 10.5, or am I just hosed?
