Re: Elektron Analog Four Questions

I'm hardly an expert on the elektron workflow but I have an analog rytm and there are a lot of similarities across devices. What I know I've mostly learned from watching videos and reading on elektronauts; I'd recommend just watching everything you can find on youtube, even a few about other elektro...

Re: Native Instruments "The Mouth"

I use it occasionally but haven't in a while (didn't haven't any detuning problems last time) -- if I think of it tonight I'll try to see if it still works for me. awesome man :) I've messed around with a vocoder -> the mouth configuration for a while and I'm afraid I can't get it to do something t...

Re: Best drum machine?

Not sure if this is exactly what you are looking for but I do love my elektron analog rytm, even though I still am learning it; I doubt anything in software is remotely like this. They are working on some deep plugin integration (overbridge), it's not out yet though for the rytm.

Re: Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 good replacement for NI AK1?

I went from my 2nd dead AK1 to a focusrite 6i6 -- it's great, super reliable and easy (OS X). (I haven't really made use of the extra ports that this expansion got me, since I don't do a lot of stuff out of the box. But I could! It is nice to have a 2nd headphone out jack though.)

Re: EQ8 does not cut low freq's

I'm using the "x24" low cut on band 1. Band 1 is up at 100Hz. There's stuff bouncing around above -12db all the way down to the lowest freqs on the spectrum. At 24db per octave (x24) there shouldn't be any 30, 40, 50 hz. And at -12db ? That's loud. Just saying. Can you post a screenshot with a spec...

Re: Pros/cons of using an Audio Interface

Hi, I purchased a Saffire Pro 24 AI recently to add to my studio setup. To be honest, Ive literally used it twice and its not just collecting dust. Can someone remind me the benefits of using one of these things? I usually just use the headphone jack on my mac and go straight to the monitors. Yeah ...

Re: corpus experts- midi input and tuning

i think i got it- im feeding it all kinds of random sounds some pitched some not :/- would be cool if it worked in a way so that its in tune no matter what is sent- ableton's resonator works this way no?- just no midi input :/ I think it might be helpful to understand better what a resonator is.

Re: audacity versus live 9 audio quality

I exported a 32 bit wav file into audacity several times last night with various different limiter settings and on each occasion when I import into Audacity the audio quality was quite a lot worse in audacity than ableton. I even restarted Live and re-imported the wav file with a completely new pro...

Re: Sudden deafening white noise - help!

I've had this with a fairly different audio interface (NI audio kontrol 1) caused by old drivers, went away with updated drivers. My first thought also was some plugin in demo mode, but that should be affected by the volume controls in ableton. What happens if you just quit ableton when this happens...

Re: Which software to create mp3 on mac?

I just use lame from the command line (can install via macports). "lame --preset standard file.wav file.mp3" -- one simple step 8) . then "open ." if you want to get at the file in finder.

Re: what fried my audio interface?

it is possible that the surge effected your usb bus power output (from the monitor) enough to fry your interface but not anything else. Thanks, this sounds pretty plausible since it definitely was the most delicate thing on that hub, I was just listening to music so no other audio equipment was plu...
