Can't you set Count-in to 2 bars?

You can start a clip from a negative starting point, but that doesn't mean the Transport readout will reflect this. I'd just add 2 bars of silence to the beginning. I'm assuming this is about syncing an external sequencer?

Thanks.
Nope it’s a live set with click, tone and playback also triggering control. I need the song start to be at a minus number for consistency and clarity as well as technical reasons. How do I start at a negative number please.

Only way would be to use an external TIME reference, running Live as a slave, start that unit with a negative number. AFAICT Live can't do that. That's so stupid but apparently is how Ableton choose to roll.
