Re: Akai APC40 V2 or Future Releases

So you would like to use your many inputs/preamps with the apc40 in a live performance . this part directed at the OP: do you really honestly not have enough motivation to play a live show that you'd not be willing to plug in TWO whole machines? FIRST: I had no idea that a simple thread would resul...

Re: Akai APC40 V2 or Future Releases

I'm not saying I don't like the Apogee (Duet) - it's what I use in the studio. But if I'm playing out (and can't control the venue sound system), I'd like to have the option to not bring a separate interface. Like how the Novations have interfaces (xstation) - i wouldn't use them for all application...

Akai APC40 V2 or Future Releases

I had an APC on order but cancelled it - mostly b/c it's "non-essential" and well, the economy sucks. I realize now that it wasn't an entirely bad move... although i'm typically an early adopter, I realized that putting the brakes on this purchase made me think clearly on what it is that I want. It'...

Re: Multiple Output soundcard ?

I am not sure about your sound card but having 2 pairs of outputs is helpful for cueing the next track or listening to how two tracks work together before putting it out the main so the floor can hear. Another way to achieve this is via the aggregate devices feature in the audio midi console - if yo...

Start your own label

If you can't find a label, why not try to release it yourself?

n0nce knows no humor

Seriously??? I get that the idea is to flush out the beta bugs and get it market ready. However, a lot of tech companies keep beta under wraps, not so public, and don't necessarily come out and hype stuff with an unspecified duration of beta testing between the PR and the actual release. Point of th...

Live 8 is Pain and Suffering

Dear Ableton team, You guys are like a really hot [girl/guy depending on the reader's gender] that has successfully teased us with saying you'll be putting out [Live 8, APC, other stuff] but now are forcing us to wait. This is pretty mean, and I want you to know that as a child of high speed lines, ...

Get your friends on Ableton

The best way to convince people to use ableton is to put together a simple setup of various clips, hook up a midi controller, and play the sequencer like a live instrument, and then have them do it. Then, as they do it, record their performance, and flip over to the arrangement view and show them th...

non-traditional dj sets

the challenge with playing original music at a club/bar is that people won't easily connect with it because it's new... they have to process it in their heads. i'm definitely much more of a producer than a DJ and have been thinking about this as well. my approach is to go down the path of the mash u...

File renaming script?

Hi everyone, I have been using live for some time for DJing purposes. To this end, I warped a lot of tracks over time, and have a lot of .asd files. Now over time I have also developed various approaches for organizing my library, renaming my source mp3 or wav files so I can better recognize and use...
