Live’s Global Record mode is great because it makes it so easy to capture a performance, but it’s also potentially aggrivating because it makes it so easy to record unecessary automation. It’s very common to have to go through and completely remove entire tracks of automation after recording an arrangment – fortunately there are a couple of shortcuts that make this very easy.
Anywhere you see a red “led”, you can right-click to remove all of the automation for that parameter:
Alternately, you can right-click in the title bar of a track in the Arrangement view and use the Clear Envelope command:
Clear Envelope will remove all of the automation that is currently being displayed – in this case, the Variation parameter of the Beat Repeat.
Clear All Envelopes of <device name> removes all automation for every parameter of whatever device is shown in the top menu – in this case, the Beat Repeat.
Clear All Enevelopes removes all of the automation for the track in one shot. Boom!
