AmbientRockFromThePitsOfTheArmsOfTheBigScaryMan

Hi guys, My most recent escapades with Reason and Ableton transmutated themselves into an ambient rock tune called http://soundcloud.com/father-son-and-alcohol/inaudible-soundscapes .

Re: Burst of noise when launching scenes.

It sounds like your CPU is overloading. Check the 'D' thingy on the top right corner. If it flashes around the time you launch a scene, it's overloading.

Re: Overload on Redux / insert effects

You generally don't have to worry about clipping within a track as long as the track's overall output doesn't go red. If the last effect in the chain is causing it to clip, you can either insert a limiter after it or bring down the track volume.

Re: Delay trick in Live - How?

You can get this effect using a ping pong delay or a simple delay in Ableton. When you right click the yellow title bar on the device, you'll get a menu with 3 options. For me, it is set to "fade" by default. If you check the "repitch" option, you can automate the delay time to get the effect in the...

Re: Q for iMac owners: .i5 vs. i7 with Live 8

I haven't used an i7 before, but from what I've heard (ironically, from the salesman at the apple store), it doesn't really boost performance by that much. Probably not worth the extra cash, which is why I bought the i5. But maybe you should wait for a reply from an i7 user. :| EDIT: I just saw that...

Re: How to: Delay a midi or audio track by a few millisecondsfor

Click the "D" button on the bottom right corner of Live's interface (near the mixer, crossfade, I/O buttons). This will open up the track delays.

Re: FM8 experts? Adding Vibrato?

Yep. That is cool. I've come across some really strange sounds with FM8's LFO.

BTW.. You could try using a frequency shifter inserted after FM8. I don't really use it for vibrato but it might work.

Advice for buying a new MIDI keyboard?

Hey all, I am planning to buy a new keyboard next month, and I have singled out the following three: 1. Novation Impulse 49 2. Akai Professional MPK49 3. Roland A500 Pro I will be using this more with Reason than with Ableton, but I will surely use it with both DAWs. If anyone who uses/has used any ...
