Fast forward to NAMM 09 and the APC40...

Thank you twats for crapping on my thread, what a bunch of idiots you look like now.

This controller is what I am talking about. This is the visual interface I need.

OK, firstly I don't think any controller device external to Live can be much help. Whether the pads/buttons light up or not, its no guarantee that a clip is playing. Only Live's session view is to be believed. Conclusion: I get glasses, or zoom in on the session area. Colours is a great idea too. Se...

you can use your ears. Your audience has to, so why don't you? Because when I trigger something for the next bar, my audience will hear it is the wrong clip around the same time I realise it is the wrong clip... I don't want to memorize which button triggers which clip, I want to see what clip it i...

I need to clearly see what clips are playing!

I've got the clips, I know how I want them to play together and I want to do a live set triggering the clips, err, live. But I need to clearly see which clips are playing and not squint looking at a MacBook screen. Whether I trigger with keys or pads, I want visual feedback to tell me which ones are...

Re: I need a Mac OS X audio editor and hate Peak and Wave Ed

TC Electronic used to make a great editor called Spark XL. real shame they discontinued it, but you may be able to find it if you look around. never made it to intel, though - ppc only I remember SparkXL, but you must be getting old. Then again my first Mac ran OS 6. Amazing what you can do all on ...

I do all my wave editing in Live with Clip envs - then consolidate, crop or render/resample the cli based on what im looking for. Good idea! I'm thinking of doing without an audio editor altogether and maybe just shuffle files back to my PC for Sound Forge, although I appreciate the suggestions all...

Why don't you like Wave Editor? Have you thought about just getting Parallels and running Sound Forge still? I did that to run Wavelab, works great, no issues at all. Wave Editor - dunno it just doesn't feel comfortable. I really tried to like it, honest I did! Even matched the key and mouse as clo...

I need a Mac OS X audio editor and hate Peak and Wave Editor

What else is there out there? I want to clean up samples: trim, fade, pencil the odd spike. i don't need mastering or multitracking. Just sample editing, mostly drum samples and no looping.

I love Sound Forge on the PC, but I can't find something similar on the Mac.

Any ideas?

How does the version of live packs in Drum Machines work ?

Are these likely to be upgraded and how will I know if newer versions come out? My download has nine of the packs on version 3 and one on version 4.

Recommend a low cost firewire audio interface for Leopard

New MacbookPro owner here, not happy about chucking my 2 year old M-Audio Firewire Audiophile away because there's no 10.5 drivers. Leopard has been out long enough, so the M-Audio box has to go. Do you really need new drivers for EVERY .1 .2 .3 update ?? Can anyone recommend a similar price range f...

I'm getting in touch with my Reason side again. Not bad, not bad at all with freely patchable effects and mastering on the output.

Instrument Rack is interesting - that wouid give me the entire setup in a clip. Whereas splitting it into several tracks for full mixing would make it very hard to move to another project.

Choices... choices... thanks for your ideas!

Recommend a drums VST plugin for Windows Live?

Please recommend a drums VST plugin for Live 6 under Windows. I want better routing than Impulse - you can only pick one part out to a separate track and I think it would be great to send several (like a hi hat pair) to the same bus for FX. I know you can work around Impulse's limitations, but it ju...

RMIV can be great - it works perfectly for me in the Orion demo so I'm not just an RMIV hater. I really want it to work in Live 5.

Thanks for confirming.
