Speed Up Your Work In Ableton Live

Tonearm has announced the release of Vitamin L, a free system of over 100 shortcuts and tools developed for speeding up the workflow in Ableton Live.

It combines accelerated access to most frequently performed tasks with many functionality enhancements.

Features:

  • Context-sensitive mouse wheel assignment.
  • Easy keyboard access to many clip properties and envelopes.
  • Quick modes for adjusting clip gain, pitch and BPM from the timeline/session.
  • Keyboard timeline navigation, play-from-mouse-cursor, etc.
  • A quick and simple solution to recording and combining multiple takes.
  • Power-zoom: mouse-wheel zoom, accelerated zoom, vertical zoom, zoom presets.
  • Precision editing (nudge, move/copy to an adjacent track and more).
  • Automation tools, including working with lanes and editing the tempo envelope.
  • Sample-audio-to-midi-track function and shortcut.

Available for Windows XP (with potential Vista support in later versions), Vitamin L is free and is delivered as a small executable (.exe) that runs concurrently with Ableton Live to facilitate keyboard/mouse access to a variety of functions.

As there’s not Mac version, I haven’t had a chance to try this out. If you have, let me know what you think!
