1. What exactly is a transient in Ableton Live?

Simply put, it is the sudden rise or a spike in the audio waveform visual in the clip view. Ableton has algorithms to detect such transients.

I used a melodic sample in simpler but the notes I composed are not matching with the scale of my song. Why?

You need to calibrate your sample’s pitch within Live’s and you’re good to go.

Can I create pitch bending movement to our samples?

Yes, This can easily done with either via clip properties or via simpler instrument’s pitch envelope section.

I’m not able to match the tempo of the sample i’m using with the project. What do I do?

This could be happening because of multiple reasons. There are simple manual workflows to match sample tempo easily in Live. Get in touch with us, or check out our masterclass on Sampling by Oceantied to learn more.

We see ADSR knobs in Simpler. Isn’t ADSR for synthesis?

The visible knobs are to control amplitude envelope in Classic mode. Sampling instruments like Simpler have a lot of advanced functionalities. Some of them inspired by traditional synthesizers. ADSR is just one such modulation function.
