Re: 10 is announced!

anyone else think the £183 upgrade price is a bit steep? Tweaked UI, one new instrument and 3 effects? Cant see much of an improvement in the way I work to be honest. I have skipped versions in the past (8 lol), seems to be focused on people who have a Push 2 this upgrade. I'd not expect it to have...

Re: Ableton live recognising Kenton USB Solo

Ableton have never been at the forefront of MIDI implimentation within Live. As your solo is USB Ableton would need to add it to there list of controllers. They most likely have never heard of the company called Kenton. I'm sure the pro solo is less used than say the 'Arturia Beat Pro' so only if cu...

Re: Insane Waves Vocal FX Bundle deal..

I used Waves way way way back before music was invented! Then stopped using them for about 5 years. Then couple of years ago decided I needed them so got an upgrade plan. Although my old plugins were around 4 versions behind I got the latest ones. I think Waves are good for that and better than many...

Re: Advice to mastering with ableton

Compressors on every instrument track seems a little over the top! It depends however on what you are going to finally do with it. As you can put mastering on the 'Master' live. RA Master rack is a good cheap solution although you may have to play with some of the settings. If you have a little more...

Re: A Sense of Urgency?

Strangely Ableton 9 with Max for me was very stable.

However, since upgrading to 9.2.1 this seems to have brought in the crashes again when using Max.

Pro Tools First

Avid Pro Tools is what the pro's use :D So I though I give Pro Tools First (that's the new freebie Avid are given away) a quick goosey gander. Verdict so far.. what a Stanley Steamer! It crashes more than Live 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9 put together. Some talk about the how live is a little slow starting up....

Re: Make Noise Modular with Ableton live and MFB Tanzbaer

From what I can see the Make Noise Modular does not have a Midi to CV module (can't see one) The MCV4 will control modules from a midi keyboard or hardware sequencer but will not transmit midi clock (I do not own one so are not 100% sure). I use a KENTON PRO SOLO MkII. AUX 1 has a [CL} output. http:...

Re: ARE USING LOOPS Acceptable among community

"Who cares" - too right

Some will say you can't use a paid sample or a synth preset!
Although if you tinker with a VCF or a VCO on a synth preset - amazingly it's not a preset!
BOLLOCKS
It's how you use both of them to create a new piece of music.

Re: OSCiLLOT

CPU usage
Polyphonic instruments - eat CPU for breakfast (even an Intel i7)
Mono instruments - not too bad

I'm hoping that with upgrades they will be able to them it less CPU hungry!

Korg SQ-1 First Thoughts

When Korg announced the MS20 Mini everyone wondered if they would release another SQ-10. Korg answered MS20 mini owners at this year’s NAMM with the SQ-1 a desktop 16 note sequencer. Opening the SQ-1 outer box reveals a solid looking metal case with an 'on' button, large sequencer knob, a bunch of s...

Re: OSCiLLOT

overlaps with the new BEAP library in Max 7 Not sure as I'm still running a full version of MAX 6.1. Almost looks like it basically just makes Max for Live a lot more user friendly Yes, it does! Certainly, you could do the same thing in max if you created the 100 or so devices! I suppose most of us...
