Hello, all! I’m dabbling in Ableton Live again after some years away, and I’m finding I now have trouble converting tracks purchased in iTunes to a usable format. This used to be a fairly easy procedure, but it looks like something’s changed, most likely on the iTunes side.
I’ve hit the web to try and figure out my options, but haven’t had much luck yet. Can anyone recommend a best practice? Thanks in advance!
Well, the problem is that I don’t have that option. Tracks purchased through iTunes don’t appear in Ableton’s file browser, and can’t be dragged and dropped into Ableton channels from iTunes (arrangement or session view). I should note that I’m using Live 8; did this become an option with 9?
That is a good question, I have been using 9 for quite some time now with all the packs and addons installed.
All I can say is that I directly drag the song into ableton (most of the time in live/session view) and it works like a charm.
