Re: How much noise from an external synth is too much

:) Gotcha. It was actually bothersome last night. It's not particularly noticeable when you've got big fat gnarly sounds going, but I was trying to record some very delicate sounds last night & the hiss was quite intrusive. -125db noise should not be noticeable if you are recording at a decent leve...

Re: How to get "blown" out track without blowing out Master?

If this is a lame question, I'm sorry. I've been using Ableton for about a week and picked up a PUSH. Just a new hobby for me. While playing with the push I created something with the encoder automation recording feature that I really like. However, it is basically blowing out the track to get the ...

Re: Live 9 crashes regularly for me

this is why i jumped to REAPER. live has become more of a god damn pain then a great experience. even though reapers midi is goofy at times, it is so much easier to work in as far as flow. I also have reaper. Meh. Audio, midi and automation editing are kinda painful. Side chaining is.... Odd. Routi...

Re: Synthesizer: Ultranova or Blofeld for Ableton Live?

Also, the Ultranova can't really make any sounds that you can't get out of Analog or Operator in Live, whereas the Blofeld has a different sound, so you will get something else. For the VA sounds, this is definitely true. The filter in the UltraNova sounds different to me. The wavetable and ringmod...

Re: Synthesizer: Ultranova or Blofeld for Ableton Live?

I know there's a ton of information online about the Novation Ultranova vs the Waldorf Blofeld keyboard, but I haven't found a lot to do with Ableton adaptability (especially for the Blofeld). If you have experience with them, would you recommend one over the other and why? Why did you get yours? -...

Re: CPU use during rendering.

How much is used? Is it more than when playing a song, or less? I seem to be able to render songs ok which crackle in Live, so I'm assuming less. Rendering is not done in real time unless you have ext instruments or fx. In this mode Live can run its engines at full throttle which should use 100% CP...

Re: Has this happened too you?

It happens to me constantly it's called "editing". I always come up with way more ideas than I need when writing a song, and then it's a matter of taking away the things that don't work so well to give the important stuff the room it needs to be effective. Great point. At first, the feeling that I ...

Re: Help me use native Ableton plugs to sound like Reasons

Rewire is the biggest headache in the world! lol. I know about parrallel stuff, nested racks, etc. But its just still not getting me their. I eq and layer in Ableton as I do in Reason too. Is it just better DSP algorithms in the fx department? I dunno. I've found ReWire to be very easy to set up. J...

Re: Something very simple

ok, but it happens always, even if I don't make any tempo changes. In this case at least it shouldn't happen. By the way, does exist a way to loop a clip without warp ? The problem is, even if you truncate the loop at a zero crossing at the beginning, the end might not be on a zero crossing due to ...

deadmau5 uses Live, in his YouTube vids at least. Lots of very nice analog modulars as well.

Re: I'm thinking of starting a course in programming - advice?

I'd go with some theory first. Learn about OOP and memory, loops, pointers, variables and all the foundations for all of the languages before diving "into" a language. C/C++ is pretty hardcore for a noob, but it also gives you a foundation for every other language. The good thing about starting the...

Re: Sound Quality: Auto-Warped vs Unwarped

When I freeze and flatten a track, I get a warped clip, by default set to Beats Transients Loop Back-and-Forth (This happens in spite of the fact that, in the Preferences, "Auto-Warp Long Samples" is turned off and "Loop/Warp Short Samples" is set to "Unwarped One Shot".) Pseudo warp markers are au...

Re: Novation Ultranova - Automap and Ableton

I've got an ultranova too, but I don't use it for the mixer. There's no default mapping for un -> mixer, so you'll have to do that yourself.
