In this video tutorial from his complete live recorded Masterclass Timo Preece discusses legato mode in Ableton Live. When a clip in Legato Mode is launched, it takes over the play position from whatever clip was played in that track before. Hence, you can toggle clips at any moment and rate without ever losing the sync. As you can imagine this type of control can be very useful in a live performance for long playing clips like vocals and pads.
