Ok. I finally came across something I’m having trouble figuring out on my own/docs, and I’m hoping someone can point me in the right direction.
I’m trying to start using backing tracks with Cantabile for live performance, and I am trying to achieve some of the flexibility with backing tracks that I am capable of in Ableton. The following is essentially what I want to do:
- Pull a backing track into a media player where the audio is in line with the tempo of the song so that the measure in the media player aligns with the downbeat correctly…check
- I want to define ranges within the track that correspond to intro/v1/c1/v2/c2/end…and so on with the start of each range being the measure beginning the associated section. The end of each range will be the end of the song. In Ableton, I do this with scenes…check so far as defining the ranges
- I need to be able to trigger a specific range (indexed would be fine) while a current range is playing. I would like the current measure to complete with the current range before starting the next range at the beginning of the next measure (either tie it to a controller button, or to a song part)…not check yet
This would enable me to jump back into a verse or rerun a chorus dynamically while performing then for the remainder of the backing track to play. This works smoothly in Ableton, and I feel like Cantabile should be able to do this since it is designed for live performance. I think I am just not connecting all the dots here. What can I do?
