Re: Bitwig 1.3: now with multitouch support

I have a linnstument and ur it pretty often. It's definitely a different way to input notes! I find myself using it for bass mostly (easier to play chords on my guitar or keyboard). As for using it in Live it works but is limited. You can't use the per note expression functions when playing more tha...

Re: Views on using drum loops and musical loops in your tracks.

If I abstract your question to the "What constitutes art?" question, my answer would be "well certainly someone could create a work of art by using pre-made loops". Now do I do that personally? No, but it doesn't seem to be due to some pre-made loop phobia, but my terror of the idea of telling someo...

Re: Wireless internet or wired recording computer?

if you have a choice then Ethernet is better because it is less likely to cause audio glitches than wifi (and it gives you a faster solid connection). +1 on this. My PC's wireless card has been the only source of audio instability (cracks, pops, dropouts, resetting of gain controls) in my system. I...

Re: guitar strumming

Thanks Angstrom. I tried your technique combined with the staggered strumming and it works great for my needs. I don't use Live for performing but to write and compose songs. @Aldentinnin I write different types of songs. New wave rock, Levon Helm or The Band type stuff, ballads and contemporary C&...

Re: guitar strumming

Is there a specific song/style you are trying to emulate? Narrowing this down should help with the voicing/voice leading question and possibly suggest some strumming patterns/

Re: Your In-Flight Methods/Setups

The TE Op-1 is a great plane accompaniment. Although if its Live u want then for me its an 11" MacBook Air all the way. That thing fits perfect on the table trays. Having said that I really need some noise canceling headphones for the task... Can anyone recommend any? I wouldn't recommend active "n...

Re: Sitting on the Fence - Push or Maschine

humnumb (as all trolls) functions as a digestive tract (maybe colon is more appropriate) - no matter what input/food he gets it ultimately ends up as feces being ejected all over the thread. most will regard this scatological substitution as such and thus avoid stepping in it. in retrospect his comm...

Re: Sitting on the Fence - Push or Maschine

With regards to mapping proprietary synths, they do it in a similar fashion (e.g., first 8 knobs are macros, and multiple pages of parameters). If they did this in the exact same way they would be identical, and if they were identical I would have said identical, but they aren't identical they are s...

Re: Sitting on the Fence - Push or Maschine

Load an instance of Massive from Maschine and what are Maschine's first 8 parameters set to?... that's right Massive's macro controls - if you want a synth with physical knobs for every parameter get a hardware synth! Um, no. The fact that the first 8 parameters of Massive that gets mapped are Mass...

Re: Sitting on the Fence - Push or Maschine

but using maschine was not an easy task in my opinion for controlling live. While it was simplistic in its layout, it felt complicated remembering which button or shift combo did what. The selling points like chopping don't work in the live side...its done from the maschine side. So you are still r...

Re: Is Live 9 better at communicating with Maschine than Live 8

i just busted out my maschine, cuz i thought maybe in recent months i was being a hater, without really giving the new template a shot. then i got re-bitter when i had to change all my pads from "poly pressure" (default setting) to "note" (in controller editor) in order to get the velocity right.

Re: Anyone using MAschine to control Live with the NI template?

Open the Controller Editor and go to the templates tab on the right side of the screen 3. Go to the factory templates drop down box and select ableton live 4. you should now...
