Help with upgrading my MacBook

Hi guys, I posted this over at the Apple Forums, but maybe you could give me some advice. Here's the situation. I have a mid-2011 Macbook pro, with an old operating system on it. 10.6.8 to be exact. I also have an Ipad, software version 7.1.1 - Model MD786C/A I never did the updates because I use th...

Re: Traktor Pro INTO Ableton Live - it's heaven right now!

I don’t know where we are at now with the state of things, but at the time of the partnership Serato was the preferred software of choice in the US and mostly used by Hip Hop DJs and Traktor was the software of choice outside the US mostly used by House DJs. I’d say at this point Hip Hop has fallen...

Re: Traktor Pro INTO Ableton Live - it's heaven right now!

It’s kind of disappointing that neither Ableton nor Native Instruments seem to be interested in a solution that should be dead simple. The software complements each other and I don’t think either would lose business to the other if they just played nice together…they could probably actually gain cu...

nice setup, very similar to mine, BUT... !!!! @Madureira: How do you deal with the circumstance that internal delay compensation inside ableton is off when sync mode is Slave ??? Cheers Stefan I just map the Sync button in Traktor to a scene launch button in my launchpad, and just press sync when n...

Re: Guitar amp modeling in Ableton: How to get better sounds

Anyone mention an actual amp yet? Just sayin', it's an option. This. Weirdly enough, I find a real amp to be more versatile than all amp sim software. Although all are great for sounding exactly like everyone else. True but the OP mentionned ease of use...it's hard to properly record an amp to make...

Traktor Pro INTO Ableton Live - it's heaven right now!

Hi guys, So, recently I got into djing with traktor. I wanted to have the best of both worlds: Ableton's flexibility, and Traktor's dj interface with proper dj-friendly browing, auto-grid, EQ on the fly etc. I also love traktor's remix deck concept (somewhat Ableton inspired), but I found lame that ...

Re: Novation Nio 2|4 with Macbook

Being the OP of this thread, I have to say that I had my issue solved. After installing version 1.4, released last april all works 100% now. I'm not bashing Novation, but indeed the release notes don't mention a thing about OSX 10.6.8 (snow leopard). That sucks a bit because I was aware of this rele...

Re: aurex SAMPLEDECK X2 free app for Launchpad - NO M4L/bome/...

Thanks a lot Aurex!

I'm going to do two different templates, one with the sample deck, and another with the TriggerX.

Great work!

I'll try to post some videos later on.

Oh and thanks for the comments on my setup...I love my toys!

Re: aurex SAMPLEDECK X2 free app for Launchpad - NO M4L/bome/...

Awesome work sir!! Looking forward to start using your Trigger X app, looks sweet! I have a question though... Let's say that I want to incorporate your Sampledeck INTO an existing DJ template. I'm using a Novation nocturn to trigger effects, and of course using the crossfader to switch between Deck...

Re: Opinion needed - First composition with Ableton

Any opinions on the sound quality? Nothing sounds "wrong" or out of place to me, though I'm not sure what you are going for. The sounds are solid and full, good width. The drums get a little overwhelmed by the dubstep-y talking bass and the chord stabs, but again... maybe you're going for a 'drums ...

Re: Opinion needed - First composition with Ableton

Nice! Thanks for your reply. This is basically a template that I use for a live improv. I start with a bass loop done with looper, then I jam along the file I posted until halfway the song. Then, it's electric guitar time! Another loops, solo over the middle section, then fade out. Any opinions on t...
