Re: What is wrong with this recording and can I fix it?

Time sharing...... took me a second. Brilliant! You ever been to Mau?. Its all about the time sharing. Volume equalization. An interesting combination of words but I'm not sure what you are trying to say. Equalization usually means adjusting the "volume" of a sound in specific frequency re...

Re: What is wrong with this recording and can I fix it?

I listen on headphones SonyMDR-7506 and Adam A7 speakers in a reasonably we treated room. I didn't hear the bass cutting out that you are mentioned. Not very helpful comment I realize.

Re: Fade Clip

In the old days the musicians would play quieter so as not to over power the singer. My sense is that is is a good approach for trying to make the music sound more live or organic. Of course for some genres the goal is completely the opposite. If this approach makes sense to you, one way to accompli...

Account password reset not sending the email?

Tried to reset my password for my Ableton account (not the account for this forum) and haven't received the email after over 30 minutes and two attempts.
Is there a problem with their system and I just need to be patient? Was hoping to install Live 11 today.

TIA

Re: Is creating .wav samples as convoluted as it seems? Or am I truly missing something? Examples and sub-questions insi

Does this procedure work any better for you. It assumes you are working in Sessions View. 1) Arrange a bars worth of bongo hits. 2) Highlight and consolidate (ctrl+J) 3) Drag the clip to the beginning of the track Arrange view. 4) Set the Brace to the length of the clip for export 5) Make sure only ...

Re: Quality and stereo loss when exporting

I noticed that you are exporting a WAV and MP3 file. Do both formats sound the same? Even though you have set the output of the WAV file to be 32 bits , I wonder if the problem could be caused by having too high levels in your mix? You can check this by noticing if the Master meter is always in the ...

Re: Need advise on making realistic sounds

Making MIDI instruments sound realistic is not easy and it is arguable that the sampled instruments that come with Ableton just aren't sophisticated enough to work at the highest level required for film scoring work. The bottom line is that just draw midi notes on the piano role is not going to get ...

Re: Gain Staging Help Please!

Headphones plugged directly into the Mac make it very difficult to get the sound loud enough in your ears without having your mix levels very high. You are correct that using a audio interface will allow you to have a volume control for the headphones which can make it sound louder in you ears witho...

Re: QUARTERTONES & OTHER EQUAL TEMPERED TUNINGS

This might be closer to what you are looking for. http://www.huygens-fokker.org/scala/ Bear in mind that with more than 12 divisions in an octave the MIDI keyboard no longer works "normally" This is an interesting link too https://music.stackexchange.com/questions/43176/sending-microtuned-...

Re: Pitch Bend Automation?

This depends on what you are trying to accomplish. If you are thinking of the MIDI pitch bend function, it can be automated by drawing the curve in the clip editor. I haven't tried this (good idea for a project) but I think you could map an LFO to the control. If it is an audio track each clip has a...

Re: How did I it ?

Hi Beral, It seems to me that in order to replicate the sound of the original bass you need to look at two different things. 1. The sound of the original bass. If this is not established fine tuning the tremelo will not get you were you want to be. It is going to be a real challenge to reproduce the...

Re: mic input signal is too low

I don't think the problem is that your microphone is too good for the audio interface. To troubleshoot this problem it is helpful to break the signal path down into smaller sections. First thing to check is whether Live is connected to the focusrite scarlett 2i2 interface. Can you listen to the outp...

Setting APC 40 Mk 2 Device Lock focus when track is selected.

I suspect that the solution is some Python scripting, but I'm not even sure if the API would support the functionality I am looking for. Utilization Scenario This is a situation for live performance, with the APC 40 serving as a mixer, clip launcher and effects controller. Some of the track have lot...
