Re: Live 7 and Virus Snow or TI? Do you have midi timing issues?

Well, after some playing around, I have come up with a decent work flow that maintains correct midi timing. Basically, I use the VC vsti as is for part 1, and then a midi track to control the VC track for subsequent tracks. Part 1 seems to just work fine. For the subsequent tracks, I need to add in ...

Live 7 and Virus Snow or TI? Do you have midi timing issues?

I am using the latest version of Live 7 with the latest OS3 Virus VC software on macbook (latest model). I have no problems with the plug in, while I have the tracks armed, I get pretty much zero latency. When I go to record midi in a clip, all the recorded notes are delayed by quite a bit. I have t...

Does Live remember my laptop if I erase my HD and reinstall?

Will it count down my license? Or will Ableton remember that I had Live on this particular machine?

And then I eventuall...

Macbook built in audio: 61 samples! 3.74 ms latency!!

I am absolutely floored by how well CoreAudio works with even the built in audio on my MacBook. I wish someone would have told me this a long time ago as I battled XP performance issues. I am now in mobile heaven. Especially since I work 80% in the box. I don't need anything but my MacBook and headp...

Windows has never supported FW800, has it?

Doesn't seem like it does. And it doesn't even let me use the port at 400.

Anyone using the Mackie Onyx Satellite? What buffer setting?

I am looking into this low cost FW interface. I am wondering how decent the ASIO drivers are. In windows, what is the lowest buffer setting you can run smoothly? I am mainly interested in VSTi performance.

Newest MBP, FW410 works in Mac osx, but not in Windows XP??

I just got a Macbook Pro and found that my FW410 works fine in Live under OSX, but freezes on Live startup in Windows. At first I though maybe it is the whole 'Agere' Firewire chipset issue, but if that were the case, why would it work under OSX? So it must be either a windows issue, bootcamp driver...

if it is an intel, are you using the UNIBIN version of the plug?
That must be the problem. I have an intel mac. I guess the vst is not UB.

My vst is in HD->Library->Audio->Plug-Ins->VST

I see fre(a)koscope.vst right in that folder, but live won't show it.

How to set a knob to add to a CC envelope? Relative adding?

I am drawing in CC messages to my external synth, and so far that is working out well. Problem is, I want to do on top of the drawn in envelope, an additional sweep that would in essence move the entire envelope up or down, using either another envelope or maybe just a knob on my keyboard controller...

OK!

Figured out a solution, I can ignore the LSB, and just use the MSB, since I don't need such high resolution anyways. I am mainly doing filter jumps as opposed to slow sweeps anyways.

How to midi control 19 MSB 51 LSB?

On my Moog voyager, when I record filter sweeps, I get control envelopes on controller number 19 and 51. The playback is not modulating the filter cutoff correctly, I hear a strange noise instead. Is there a way to set a single midi control envelope for 19 MSB 51 LSB together? The manual list the 2 ...
