Re: Simple gain staging/levels question

I like to play with clip gain in the first place. That way I'm sure to have plenty of headroom along the way. Remember that lowering a fader may prevent an overload on the master bus but has no effect over redlining plugins on individual channels. Another thing: so many plugins nowadays are (close o...

Apply fades to all selected clips in arrangement view in one shot.

Re: Placing Your Tracks (your techniques)

I do it in the mix, using pan pots on individual tracks. The sense of space, depth and width is better achieved using panning, reverbs, delays, volume and good frequency distribution. If I have to use a stereo widener for some reason, my choice goes to Sonalksis Stereo Tools (not more than 130% usua...

Re: Experienced with production, Ableton Live Noob. Questions

1. Correct. Think of session view as a jam pad, whereas arrangement view is the traditionnal linear timeline approach common to almost every DAWS.

Re: RENDERING ISSUE....Poor Quality

I'm curious though. I have music in my iTunes from other non-professional musicians who make stuff on Ableton. Why is it that there stuff sounds alright on my iTunes before I uncheck those sound preference settings? It sounds better after un checking those preferences, but still, even before, they ...

Re: Can i use this cable between my monitors and audio interface

It will work perfectly. I'm sure you can find similar cables in your local music store if you want to save €. just write down the specs.

You're welcome!
