Converts Ableton Live .als files to XML as their saved. The point of this is so that you can use git with your .als files. Git is a lot more useful with line based text files then binary files. Just gzip the .xml files and rename them to .als to have Ableton Live load them.

Converts Ableton Live .als files to XML as their saved. The point of this is so that you can use git with your .als files. Git is a lot more useful with line based text files than binary files.

Usage

gem install guard
gem install guard-live-set
cd ~/Path/To/Root/Of/Ableton/LiveSets
guard init live-set
guard

You'll probably want to add the rb-fsevent gem and “require 'rb-fsevent' to the top of the Guardfile generated by ”guard init live-set“ if you're on a Mac. If you're not on a make read the guard docs for your OS.

To get Live to read a .xml you download:

gzip Foobar.als.xml
mv Foobar.als.xml.gz Foobar.als
open Foobar.als
