Re: Recording Latency Question

Hello all, I am fairly new user of Ableton, and I love it! However, I am having trouble synching my playing to the set. I think the problem is latency in my audio device. For example, I lay down a trivial drum track. Hits on the beat. Now I strum my guitar on the beat. The recording I get is not on...

Do macs get lower latency?

I saw a couple videos of people processing directly through ableton. For instance there is a video where the depeche mode engineer runs the drums through ableton using the effects. Do they just deal with the latency? Is it unnoticeable? Also gotye in that new vid seemed to be processing through able...

Re: If You Use Ipad Primarily for Music apps Only, Question 4 u?

I just downloaded the tabletop and it seems pretty awesome. The prices seem a little high to me though to buy the in app addons.

I kinda like garage band on the ipad. If I only had a good way to get audio in and out. :)

Re: Serious soundcard/interface glitching

Hello, Just weeks ago, I never had any problems with clicks or pops, or generally distorted sound quality. In this past week, I began using my PodXT as an interface for my guitar, but found that it doesn't produce high frequencies well and is fairly clicky and glitchy. I went back to using my onboa...

Re: Help set my delay/driver error comp settings?

You should do the driver compensation help file... Or just plug your output to one of your inputs with the monitoring off record the metronome going through it. Check to see how off the grid your metronome is and set accordingly. (make sure you turn direct monitoring off so you don't get that signal...

Re: USB Soundcard!

Hey all, I have just ordered some M-Audio AV40's as Ableton has its hooks in me (and I'm a cheapskate) and would also like to order a soundcard to match the budget. £50 or there abouts would be perfect. I dont need more than one input, basically something to just improve sound quality and latency I...

Re: Anyone used FL and Ableton?

I don't really understand what you want to do. I was an avid fl user for years, once I found ableton I switched overnight. I do sometimes use it as a vst Plugin tho.

Touchable not a control surface option?

I just upgraded from like 8.2.1 to 8.3.3 I'm trying to run my touchable software, but it doesn't seem to have the option in the control surface options. The YOKE ins and outs are there, just not the control surface option. It works in my other versions of ableton. Any ideas? EDIT: I uninstalled touc...

Re: How to make a string quartet sound like an orchestra?

I have never tried with strings, but try setting up a mic in the middle of your room and record your strings coming out if your speakers. Then mix the 2 channels to get that real reverb sound

I tried with electronic drums and the sound is great

Attack and Release settings when multiband compressing?

I'm mostly talking about mastering here. Its really hard to find a straight answer when it comes to mastering anything. Most people tend to speak in parables and poetry instead of giving you real numbers. I realize that your ears are the final judge, but I'd like to know a good starting point for ea...

Re: Lightening fried my interface need suggestions

Thanks for the suggestion. I was actually looking at te interface Akai makes. Anyone have experience with them. Akai doesn't disappoint me too often (except those funny pads on the mpk 49)
