Arming tracks for record

Arming tracks for record

I can understand why you might want this out of the way for live use, but for use in the studio, it's a royal pain to have to open the mixer and mouse all the way to the left all the time.

I did not find an key command for toggling record, or another method. I'd like to suggest at least adding a toggle command or adding an option to put the solo/arm buttons on the track header where they're easier to get to, for studio use.

Maybe Live should just have a "Studio" mode where you can have a more efficient studio interface without messing with the live stuff.

Here for the gear
 

Agreed. Studio mode would be amazing.

There is a txtfile setting that arms a track automatically at selecting it.

10 Hidden Features in Ableton Live with Options.txt (SonicBloom.net)

Note that's a capital "O" in "Options.txt", which shouldn't make a difference in a case-insensitive file system, but does in my experience.

Thanks for reminding us about "-EnableArmOnSelection". As I use Push a lot I tend to not notice tracks not getting armed as using one brings this behavior with it.

I knew about that. I don't want to arm on selection. Too much of a chance for making a mistake the way I work. Just a key command please.
