Live Enhancement Suite is a workflow enhancement tool written in AutoHotkey and Lua + Hammerspoon. Instead of making changes to Ableton Live itself, it automates user action at near-invisible speeds.
Both of these tools are often used to make quick and dirty shortcuts for personal use, but the goal of Live Enhancement Suite is to make a tool that works well for all users, making these shortcuts accessible and easy to use.
A complete list of all the features can be found in the documentation.
LES is an Ableton Live fan project run by artists.
In our opinion, Ableton Live is very close to being the perfect DAW for creating music and other content. However, there are additional features we wish were part of the software, but aren't, so we've created them ourselves.
We hope to make the music creation experience more enjoyable for beginners and professionals alike.
This is a common problem people have when running Ableton Live as an administrator.
An easy way to fix this is to either run Ableton Live as a normal user, or to run LES as an administrator. Everything will work fine as long as both of them match.
You probably made a menu that somehow causes hammerspoon to crap out.
I try to catch most possile errors, but I probably did't get all of them.
Head to the finder, hit Cmd + shift + G; and enter ~/.LES/
In here you can find the menuconfig.ini file when the program refuses to start.
Try to look out for submenus without items, or empty lines that accidentally have a space bar on them.
Ableton has changed the way right click menus work on Mac in Live 10.3, but the functionality hasn't changed.
Unfortunately there's not a way to fix this visual glitch without compromising performance. Don't worry, you're not selecting two things at the same time.
In order to place scale stamps you need to use the piano roll macro.
Please check out this page in the documentation for more information.
Please check out this page in the documentation for everything about installing and updating.
To create clips with the loop disabled, use the ctrl + shift + m shortcut included in Live.
Remember that LES is just a macro toolkit. There's no way for us to know you're creating a clip if you do it by double clicking.
Ableton seems to have removed literal search in a recent ableton update, making it more difficult to do specific plugin searches.
If all else fails, you can always save a preset of the plugin and then search for a .adv or .adg file instead.
Because it's a free download I'm surrounded by a forcefield that destroys all complaints and platform requests. Jokes aside, that’s not good—If you have a problem with the program misbehaving, please send Inverted Silence a DM on Twitter (DM's are open to everyone!): @invertedsilence
DM @invertedsilence on twitter if you can't figure something out!
