Control Chain Selector with +/- buttons on Roland SPD-SX

Hi there, I can't find this for the life of me... I built an instrument rack with multiple drum racks nested in, all on different chains so that our drummer can browse kits on our SPD-SX. I can easily map a knob to it, but it's a bit cumbersome and doesn't allow him to see what he's doing via the LC...

Re: Live & SPD-S

Here's what I do: 1.) Set up an instrument rack in live. Then drag drum racks into it. Each Drum track will be a different set of samples (one shots, probably, but configure however you like). 2.) Load up each drum rack with whatever samples you want and make sure the midi number in your SPD SX corr...

Re: Roland SPD-SX as midi controller for Ableton

I just went through all this for the second time again and got caught up on hitting a pad on the spd sx and not seeing the corresponding note in the drum rack light up. I remembered that I had to drop a sample on the corresponding drum rack note in order to see which note I was hitting on the pad. B...

Bruh... Takes too much time. Specially if you send a few of rough mixes out daily.

Please please, Ableton Wizard, export as mp3 on the next version and I will switch over from PT completely... :)

Re: Roland SPDS custom MIDI sampler set-up

No, I listen to shpongle so I just made that my username - we only use 2 patches on the Roland, the first one is 8 notes, and the next one is 8 notes - these 16 notes represent the 16 pads in the drumracks when you go to make a User Remote Script - so basically we can use 2 patches to access any no...

Re: Roland SPDS custom MIDI sampler set-up

forgot to mention that we also use an APC40 to control this live set, so switching between drum racks, launching dummy clips, adding delay, reverb, or any other effects is really easy - playing drums while using controllers is hard, but it's doable, ask EOTO. So you guys don't use the patch change ...

Also, I don't know if you guys saw this yet, but it's pretty useful for complex automation and it's free. It's called Clyphx. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aCFFIVCculI

That would be awesome! I'd like to see it in action. It's quite a lot to visualize just by reading your post. Thanks for the help!

Re: Roland SPDS custom MIDI sampler set-up

HELP!!!!! :D Hi there. I've recently bought an spd-s to work with ableton live 8. I have a similar situation to you. In our live set I need to be able to trigger 14 different samples (one per song) containing click tracks, B.V's and some other bits and bobs. I have set up 14 patches, one for each s...

Thanks, Pitch Black. That was exactly what I was trying to figure out. That was way too simple.

Using Ableton to project video during live shows

I am in a band where we have video art projected during our live show. I am able to use the video window in Ableton to project the video, but does anyone know of a way to project the video window only while still being able to see Ableton's session view on the computer monitor? In other words, I wan...

Re: Know of a headphone amp with 2 mixable inputs?

Thanks all. The problem I was having with other headphone amps is that when I have 2 inputs, the headphone amp sends one to the left headphone channel and one to the right. Or, I have to choose between only one of the inputs. I went with the Samson C-Que 8 Headphone Amp. With that I am able to mix 2...

Know of a headphone amp with 2 mixable inputs?

Is there a headphone amp out there that has 2 inputs? I want both inputs to go to the headphones in stereo. I have found an amp w/2 stereo inputs, but I can only choose between one input or the other. Any suggestions?

APC20 midi mapping interferes w/notes & pads on keyboard

I'm running an APC20 and an Akai MPK61 midi controller with Ableton. I have mapped locators to the APC to start each song of our set. Ableton reads the top row of buttons as notes F2 and F#2. If I enable the midi track/sync/remote for the MPK61 (I do this so I can map the pads on it to play samples)...

Roland SPDS custom MIDI sampler set-up

I'm looking to use a Roland SPDS drum pad to trigger MIDI into a sampler in Ableton Live. Right now, we use Reaktor inside of Ableton Live. Our ex-bass player built the sampler unit in Reaktor that is custom designed for our setup with the SPDS. The only problem is that due to the way he built the s...
