saving the Wav's from the decoding cache in mac

I remember a video (but can't find it now) where it explained how to get Live to convert mp3's to Wav, then move the Wavs to another location. I have changed to Mac and i can't seem to locate the decoding cache file. I can find it in Live /preferences but I can't seem to find it in Finder, the "Libr...

my list

Be nice to be able to send audio out from an audio rack, and also be able to send audio back to itself. And LFO/Modulation/Sidechain on the macros in racks. and. When previewing sounds from the browser, it would be nice to have the option of routing it to a channel so it can be processed the same as...

Headphone output, deciphering jargon

Currently I am using an M-Audio FW410. My setup consists of a Macbook Pro, Slim Phatty, Mono Evolver and a tape delay. I monitor through headphones most of the time (baby in the house). A problem I have with the FW410 is the level on the headphone output is really low. I use AKGK702 headphones. I al...

Having trouble recording controller data with Sylenth

Hi This may take awhile to explain. From my controller I am able to manipulate any controllable parameter in Sylenth but I have to go about it in two ways. 1. Assign a controller the CC number as stated in the manual for Sylenth, for example CC 71 is for Cutoff, so I make the control surface transmi...

Re: Is the Lemur iOS app useless with Live without Max4Live?

I have recently bought the Lemur app for my iPad. i must say that i find myself spending a hellova lot of time scratching my head trying to figure how to program the thing. Dont expect plug and play. Unless you can get your head around writing script then go for the more plug and play packages out t...

mapping multiple midi messages to one parameter

i have a need to map two different midi buttons to one parameter in Ableton, sort of as two differently configured macros, currently I see ableton will always overwrite with in the midi menu the last controller touched for a given parameter. is there a script or something (trick) that would allow me...

midi map question using Lemur on iPad by editing the cc note

I can't seem to log into the Liine forum so have posted this question here. I recently purchased Lemur for iPad and now have my head jammed attempting to program the thing, I'm sure the results will be worth it. This is really a question about Ableton. I Lemur I am using a multiball object which out...

problem with phasing in a feedback loop

I am having latency issues when setting up a delay feedback loop. its as if the send is adding a millisecond(s) of latency as the signal passes through, causing phasing and nasty frequencies The feedback loop is simple, from a track in Ableton, not external, a ping pong delay and limiter (both Ablet...

Re: Quick question about tuning kick and bass and key of track

This is thing. When using sampled kick i dont want to be messing around pitching it about because it ruins it. The obvious answer is "dont use samples". I always start with the kick and build up from there, quite common in house production i understand. For instance i find most of the Vengeance Samp...

Re: Quick question about tuning kick and bass and key of track

Thanks, all good stuff. Still a bit confused so i will try it both ways. I have been tuning the bass a fifth above the kick, then using that as the key of my track, the kick and bass sounds good but later on things tend to sound a bit out with the rest of the melodic elements, I will try it the othe...

Quick question about tuning kick and bass and key of track

In Tim Allen's Groove 3 tutorials he mentions tuning the bass root note to a fifth above the fundamental of the kick. For this example we will say the kick is in C and the Bass root is G.

Is my track now in the key of C or G?

Cheers

Re: Grouping drums together and compressing them

I like to group them all on a group channel, hats, kick, snare ...the lot. Then compress using ratio about 1.3, attack 10ms or so and release depending on the track, prob about 50ms. The idea is that the kick will flatten the other elements (especially the snare) and tie them all together. Works for...

Re: How to transition to Ableton Live after 20 years of Cubase?

If by "shared copies" you mean the ability to copy a midi clip 50 times but if you want to edit them all you only need to edit the original version and the rest will update? Then yes Ableton can do this if you drag the edge of the clip out, not by cut and paste (similar to Acid by Sony) I straddled ...
