Re: Freeze/Flatten at 96k? How can I be sure?

Yes, I record everything at 96k. A few questions: 1. What microphone are you using to record? 2. What is the upper limit of your microphone's frequency range? 3. What monitors are you using? 4. What is the upper limit of your monitors' frequency range? Unless you're recording with something like a ...

Re: Freeze/Flatten at 96k? How can I be sure?

Hi there - I wanted to follow up with my findings: - When you Freeze, Ableton uses the current app Preferences for the Sample Rate of the file. If you are at 96000 when you Freeze a track, your audio will be rendered at 96000. - It does not matter what the sample rate is when you Flatten . The Sampl...

Re: Freeze/Flatten at 96k? How can I be sure?

Are you recording the original audio files you're using at 96k too? You said it was 96k before you freeze or flatten, but what about any samples or loops you're using? That's what I was trying to get to when talking about upsampling, if you set the project to 96 and any audio file are actually 44.1...

Re: Freeze/Flatten at 96k? How can I be sure?

Also, this is a very interesting discussion on why higher sample-rates might not be better at all: https://www.gearslutz.com/board/mastering-forum/968641-some-thoughts-high-resolution-audio-processing.html I'm too busy in my mixdown right now to look up the references... but a lot of Avid users swe...

Re: Freeze/Flatten at 96k? How can I be sure?

Live is one of the few daws that re-samples all audio on the fly, so that noticeably better sounding 96k audio you're hearing while working on your project is actually downsampled 44.1kHz audio. What's worse, the realtime re-sampling engine they use is often criticized for not being very transparen...

If I never save, flatten, freeze in 41.1k, then I'm not actually up sampling.

I still need an answer to the question.

Because it's noticeably better sounding! If you can't tell, you need better monitoring.

Freeze/Flatten at 96k? How can I be sure?

How/when do Freeze/Flatten happen at 96k? I've been setting the project Sample Rate to 96000 before Freeze and Flatten in the hopes that they are processed at higher resolution. I then switch back to 41000 to handle mixes because of CPU limits. At export, I switch back to 96000. Am I wasting my time...

Re: Get list of available plug-ins?

Thanks for the tip. I'm still hunting for docs regarding the folder object, so I don't know if that's a solution. The reason I want it, is I'd like a quick look-up of all my available plug ins. The list of plugs would link to web pages describing what each one does. I've spec'ed out my app, and even...

Get list of available plug-ins?

Hey there, I've got a few killer apps to write in Max for Live, but I'm new to it. I do have 25 years of programming experience though! I'd like to get a list of all the available instruments and effects, including all the installed internal Ableton, Max for Live and 3rd party instruments/effects. I...

Re: Remote, near-realtime collaboration?

Yeah, I didn't get very far with OHMForce. It wouldn't verify my account. Looks nice, but if I can't even log in without bugs, I'm done! The last thing the folks I work with and myself need is another buggy workflow that crashes all the time. I'm trying to inspire, not deflate with resistance . :rol...

Remote, near-realtime collaboration?

Is there a way to share a session in Ableton? I'm guessing it's not part of Live 9's core-functionality still, but what about: - via Max for Live? - sharing via Mac's Remote Control or a 3rd party app? - hosting a session via Cubase's new real-time vst? I want to compose a track from scratch with on...

Overdub in arrange view?

I updated this thread - sorry, this was supposed to be appended to a different thread....

Can you please add MIDI overdub in arrange view? Or is it already there, and I just couldn't get it working?

Thx!
