Re: Ableton's Credit Card System Failing...???

Ableton is in Germany, mamy US issued debit cards will decline international transactions as it appears suspicious. Sometimes it will even trigger a fraud alert and the bank will call me about the charge.

I'm happy Ableton accepts paypal as a workaround.

Re: Shameless self-promotion aside...

Why can't we disable signatures in the forum settings?

I visit other forums where this is an option. Or even block/hide/ban users?

Adblock is a good idea.

Audio drop out from Clips but not from external input

OK, the last few gigs I've started having some audio drop outs, this is a more-than-capable machine, and an upgrade from a system I've been using for a few years that never had any issue. I know this is a common question, and I have searched through several old posts but I still have some specific q...

Re: APC40 Sliders stopped working (2 of them)

yes it fixed my problem, i do not know what caused them to fail, they are so cheap at mouser I would definitively recommend buying a few spares. I think in the end I had four bad faders, but only needed to replace three of them, one was fixed just by cleaning. And sometimes a bad fader can make adja...

Re: APC40 Sliders stopped working (2 of them)

This happened to me as we'll. here's a link to a replacement through mouser which is cheaper than mpcstuff.

Replacing them requires some soldering skill and preferably a medium to higher wattage soldering iron

Re: NanoKontrol + Launcpad conflict problem. Help!

The launchpad transmits on several midi channels, you probably have the nano on a conflicting channel.


FWIW My LP Transmits on Channels 1,5,6,7,8,9,10 & 11

Re: A few questions for Live 9 beta users

Consolidate time to a new scene is a game changer for me.

Prepping stuff from Arrangement for session view into clips just got a LOT easier.

It's not impossible but I would highly recommend a higher wattage soldering iron and some experience.

Re: APC40 Fader Problem

Re: Any other users using Ableton as a guitar rig live?

Subsynth: you set up sounds interesting. Do you use a controller to change settings? http://dl.dropbox.com/u/3035105/amp.jpg This was my setup a while back, I've tweaked it a little bit since. I have a Livid Ohm that I mapped a few buttons for on/off of the delays and a knob to the OD/Volume combo ...

Re: Any other users using Ableton as a guitar rig live?

I use amp and cab for my guitar rig. There's a saturation and overdrive in the chain and a couple instances of delay for different rhythmic prests. (Quarter, dotted eighth, etc) I group and macro several things together and limit their ranges. Turning up one knob adds gain, turns on Overdrive about ...

Re: Anyone using an iOS device in your setup?

Oh wow,...this doesn't sound good. I'd be using it wired but if you're having issues with the wired connection I'll pass on it. Hopefully Push will be all I need as far as controlling Ableton goes. Well I'm not having issues with wired, I just haven't been able to get it set it up. Granted, I didn'...

Re: Anyone using an iOS device in your setup?

I've tried to incorporate Griid in to my setup but I'm having mixed results. It works fine at home, but the last two gigs I've had issues, I think it's a mix of there being several other wireless networks around and perhaps my wifi card. A few times the screen stops updating, I can still navigate an...
