Sampler: How do you control Sample Start point?

Abes Sampler instrument seems to have limited controller mapping.. Am I crazy here? I've tried 'Map' when its in a group, and 'Midi Control' directly. Both methods do not show Sample Start, Loop Start/ End, or even Root Key as controllable, or Automatable. This cant be right, so I'm asking with a re...

Re: Bitwig UI makes Live look old-fashioned

Just a TY to Op: Angstrom.

Great reading.
Helps me feel sane that I'm not alone in struggling with the Live clunkyness : browser, search, file management & dead stops (freeze track with sidechain.. ya ya. I'm on 9 cause 10 crashes my system still).

Re: a little help with mac vsts

Install on a mac: exactly as Stromcraft described. You can make folders within the VST folder to better organize as you see fit (by Vst type or fx, or manufacturer, as you see fit). That is prob for much later. Some installers place inside a specific folder for you. I have both Au and Vst installed,...

Re: How much have you used relative modulation since Live 9?

Thanks OP - Angstrom. Your posts are ones I pay attention to.. even if its way over my head, still information has been gain many times. I've always avoided interaction between 'Clip' and 'Arrangement' Automation, perhaps because of this 'relative' nature. I can understand the benefit, in creating c...

Re: Moving Logic X EXS24 sampled instruments into Ableton?

As per Pitch Black (Ty for succinct explanation): Just a couple additions. A user has to do the above operation for Each and Every EXS instrument. There is no en-mass import of EXS instruments. (Please advise if I am in error). Dragging an EXS instrument from original folder, into a Live midi track ...

Re: After 10 years : why is midi mapping in Live so archaic ?

to OP:
Thanks for poking this sleeping giant...
Agreed on all points and more (more native 'midi' devices, task specific).

Live needs to update its Midi mapping.

Re: CamelCrusher in El Capitan?

Try installing and using the AU version...

Prob a long shot, but worked for me with a few older plugs (destroy effects, et al).
Or roll back the OS (bummer)..


Still... the writing is on the wall

Re: Omnispheres GUI not showing

I've had similar issues with Rmx - since Early Live 8.x
Mixing Au and Vst in the same project is an issue..
Seems fine for a while, but then the Gui will not open. Restart, Restart, try to open, if can - save preset/ multi. replace Au with Vst. Repeat as necessary.
Total Pita.

Re: Live 9 Lite to Standard upgrade: is it worth it?

Lite -> Standard ... well worth it. Blowing past those track/ return limits is a joy! Standard -> Suite ... Imho, not so much. I pretty much ignore all the extra built in sounds/ instruments in favor of a few 3rd party vst. On the last upgrade (8->9) I chose to only go up to standard.. have not once...

Re: Loosing Omnisphere Settings In Live 9 Suite

I've had this happen with RMX and not even being able to open the RMX gui. Full multi of an RMX would be just Sine (default) playing Sometimes was sorta cool. Both prob occur with the AU version, not the VST version. Either issue has been rare though (1/50 instances of RMX). But once it occurs in a ...

Re: Mac Pro 32bit machine

If its not using the 64 bit potential..., and your plugs are compatible then IMHO switch back to 32 bit. I still got a PPC G5 powermac just for some sounds our of Atmosphe...

Re: The library mess

I'm with Angstom on this... Quote for him "So this is why we see the Pad : "All Alone Pad" exists only in Ambient and evolving, and does not appear at all in "pads".
