Need Help In Achieveing A Specific Cueing Method.

Ableton Forum - homerecording.com
Hi all.

My Setup:

Traktor -> Ableton.

Windows 7 64bit

Edirol Pcr-300

My Goal:

To be Able to play tracks in Traktor and add my own loops/synth playing on top of them.

I already routed and tempo synced Traktor to Ableton and basically everything works just fine.

What I'm Missing:

I want to be able to CUE my tracks in Ableton Post Fader.

Why? for example, If I play a track in Traktor and I want to add a Synth Bass played live by me on top of it,

I want to be able to check that the level is appropriate for the track that's coming from Traktor,

I don't want the synth volume to be too low or too loud.

Is there any way to accomplish this in Ableton?

A workaround I came up with, but have a problem with:

Let's say I have Send A output set to master(1/2).

I can set all tracks' outputs to BusMonitor(3/4).

Now I hear all tracks exactly as they are set, on my phones which are connected to(3/4) - fx, vol faders etc.

I then set Send A to be naked of FX(Since it has reverb on by default) and go straight to the Master.

Now I can turn Send A on each track to 100% when I want it to go to the master->speakers(connected to 1/2).

This works just fine Except:

What if I want to have some overall FX on the Master? like a slight compressor to "glue" my loops and synth playing to the track coming from traktor?

The FX would only apply to the Master Channel, and I won't be able to listen to all my tracks including the Overall FX through my phones.

Can I set some send/return FX track for both the BusMonitor and Send A/Master ? (Not entirely sure how that would work).

Thx for the help,

ZBBZ.
