Changing cc values to prevent launchpad+axiom conflict

I have a really serious problem... It all started when I accidentally pressed a button on m axiom pro 49 which changed the preset on it, changed it back, and the midi went whack... First all of the cc values on the knobs and sliders were the same so mapping to different things ended up controlling a...

Re: Ableton Crashes when i drag audio from the browser

It's sad... ableton just crashes, for all kinds of things... every time I find a solution to my crashes, I find something new to crash Live with... Even when I saw Mimosa do a live set recently... he got a crash in the middle of his set... I sat there laughing thinking in my head "fuck ableton! I'd ...

Re: Monitor speakers for 100-150$???

I got a pair of the av40's... and they were not very good monitors... better than crappy computer speakers or nothing at all... but I eventually saved up to get some better monitors and it made a big different... I'm not saying don't buy them, but I will say if you have the patience to save up for s...

Broken mpk25, hlp plz!

I generally take very good care of my gear but I had my keyboard on my lap and my gf's cat jumps on my back with his claws and down goes the keyboard... lands on the usb cord and breaks the port on my mpk... it's only the usb port that's broken, so it should be easy to fix... I don't know how to sol...

Re: Selling some software, looking for opinions.

I use Suite 8 and Komplete 6... you can go to Suite and it might be easier on your learning curve if you aren't exactly that knowledgable of synthesizers.... BUT!!! (I take it you haven't used FM8 enough) take this into consideration... I didn't like Suite's intruments because they weren't visually ...

Re: novation launchpad for dj-ing

I think you should go for the launchpad if you plan to use other controllers and have a price limit... for my set up I use an akai mpk25 keyboard for knobs, keyboard controlled effects, and playing synth lines sometimes... i almost got a little novation mixer so i had a crossfader (the apc has a cro...

Re: Can I record a song in Ableton?

This should not be posted... I've never said this before, and I've done my share of asking questions that I should and could have looked up myself before asking but.... this is bad!!! Read the manual, watch some tutorials... try to figure it out

Re: Climax too early.

save that part for the end... or maybe start changing it... one thing I do sometimes when I have this problem is just move my midi clips around... move maybe a lead or bass line to another synth patch so it's still playing the same thing but a different sound... another thing i'll do is cut apart th...

Re: Is it proved that Live runs faster on Windows 7 than OS X

I use Live on windows vista and OSX 10.6 i think it is... ill check on that and repost when i get home anyway... i use windows vista on bootcamp and it runs much slower on windows, i also get sound issues (that's from bootcamp though, not windows itself)... When I run it in OSX it's a little more st...

Re: 25 or 49 key controller?

If it has knobs and drum pads and stuff... then the 25 will do... I have an MPK25 which is nice to take to gigs to use as an effects controller (controls Artillery)... although I use it at home to play my synth lines, I could use a larger keyboard... but If I need more keys, I'll get that one $90 m-...

Re: methods for making beats

cool to see you are startin to make your own drums funken... it really starts to pay off :) I didn't use to put my drums in different tracks because i like to map it all to my launchpad and use that as a a drum pad... then i faced this issue of needing to really separate my kicks, snares, and percus...

Re: How do I make this sound?

that is a beat, which sound do you want? i hear a little odd organ sounding synth, some hi hats (very small), a very subtle and fast modulated pad, a kick, and a very synthetic tom and cowbell type sound... you should technically be able to make all the sounds in that with just massive or fm8, not s...

Re: Is there a way to make the draw mode like FL-Studio?

ya this is one place where Ableton owns reason... you don't have to switch tools... they are all in the mouse... once enter the piano roll... double click to add a note or erase one OR right click and select the draw mode which allows you to add and erase notes with one click vs two clicks... to ext...
