Drag Many Loops at the Same Time in Ableton Live

ableton_drag_loops.pngHere’s another trick I found just recently in Ableton Live — maybe it’s been there all the time. Something very common is to drag out loops further in time in the time view. I used to drag one at time – what a drag…

However, if you select the loop, so the loop has a solid color, and then select any of the loops in the timeline, all the other loops in the same section will also be extended. This is very handy! I could then later go in and terminate the ones I don’t like.

The loops could also be shortened, to the left, with this technique. Just remember to hilight the loop so it has a solid color.
