Re: Free Ableton Sampler/Simpler Rack - Kalimba 50

OK, try it now. I've uploaded a new zip which should be Simpler-fied.

Re: looking for a cheesy saxophone synth

What about using the Apple DLSMusicDevice plugin and selecting one of the saxes from the General MIDI soundset. Voices 65 - 68 are saxophones and very "cheesy"

Re: help: DLS banks in Ableton

So to help or not? Hard to decide when abused but there is a way to do it - at least on OSX and Ableton 9 I am able to load soundfont files using the Apple Audio Unit Sampler.

Re: Map to all siblings in Live 9?

Location is described here: http://www.ableton.com/en/articles/opti ... file-live/

Re: How do I use Apple Logic instruments with Ableton live?

You can purchase Apples Mainstage from the app store and use it as an external instrument to Ableton. This gives you access to all the Logic instruments and includes all the loops (many gigs) and patches that come with Logic but for about $30 - an incredible deal.

Re: How to actually use operator's pitch bend automation?

Set the pitch bend range within Operator. Draw the pitch bend automation curve in Envelopes/MIDI Ctrl/Pitch bend in the clip.

Is this is what you are after?

Re: combining clips?

Use "MIDI to" on the original 6 tracks and "All Ins" on the target track and, as the previous poster says, a Drum Rack on your target.
