This was exactly the minor detail I knew I was missing. Thanks for reading through my confusion and offering the answer I needed.

Track A to Track B,C etc. MIDI triggering

I'm working with Ableton 8.2.2 and I have a (what I feel should be relatively easy) MIDI question that has left me stumped for the past week or so. Is it possible to take the MIDI signal from an existing MIDI drum rack and send it to another MIDI rack so as to trigger multiple sounds simultaneously?...

Re: Ableton Beginner Needs Controller Advice

Returning to the thread these years later... - The Maschine Mikro rarely got used after a friend started letting me use his V-Drums a few months later. We've captured more beats than I know what to do with for now. (The Mikro is currently boxed up, but I use the Maschine software often.) - https://f...

Re: Akai APC40 & Ableton Live - Knob Sensitivity

JuanSOLO, (I can see how I lost you, I don't really know what I'm talking about) I'm running a drum rack full of glitches & sound effects, so when I change the pitch I change the random noises, but I have arranged them that sirens get replaced by sirens, sweeps replaced by sweeps, etc. but if you pi...

Re: Akai APC40 & Ableton Live - Knob Sensitivity

JuanSOLO, when you say "rack it" you mean to actually add the pitch effect to a drum rack right? Forgive my ignorance while I ask a few questions. Once I have mapped my pitch does that mean I hit the note the pitch change was associated with then it will change automatically to the new pitch requiri...

Re: Akai APC40 & Ableton Live - Knob Sensitivity

Yeah I'm using the MIDI effect "Pitch" so it automagically maps to knob 1 of my device control or because I have more than 1 I was working with I mapped them each to knobs 5-8. the range of the "Pitch" knob seems to be from -128 to 128 and the range option that is assigned to knob 2 defaults to +127...

Akai APC40 & Ableton Live - Knob Sensitivity

I tried searching the forum, looked through the pdf manual, and gave Google a try but I'm either putting in the wrong terms or I'm just doing something wrong with my controller. Either way I come to you seeking assistance. I have added a pitch controller to my instrument and when using the default k...

Re: Desktop Mixer Advice

The Mackie 1220i http://www.mackie.com/products/onyx1220i/ for about $600 has faders over knobs, I looked at that, for the price difference all I really gain in my workflow is an additional stereo input, the added mic/mono inputs are irrelevant to my interests. I don't mind the knobs, I also like th...

Re: Desktop Mixer Advice

I spent about an hour on the phone with a Mackie rep today getting information about functionality and how to do what I want with what I have. It looks like I'll be getting rid of my M-Audio Firewire Solo sound card and picking up a Mackie Onyx 820i http://www.mackie.com/products/onyx820i/ It retail...

Re: KORG padKONTROL or Native Instruments Maschine Mikro

Additional note: Not only can I run Maschine from inside Ableton, I can run multiple instances of it, all midi synced to and adjustable from Ableton's clock. As a test, I loaded 4 instances of Maschine as instruments then loaded different song projects in each of those instruments and voila, the son...

Re: Desktop Mixer Advice

jester, I was just re-reading the reviews. They seem to state that components inside the unit were damaged, not just the wall wart, one even says the damage inside the item caused a problem that ended up frying the wall wart too though. Do you still have your Soundcraft?, if not, how long did you ha...

Re: Desktop Mixer Advice

swishniak,

I didn't mean to overlook your suggestion of the Motu, but the price is not me, this is a hobby whose budget keeps exceeding my plans. If I bought the Soundcraft COMPACT 10 and keep my M-Audio, I'm still at under half the cost of that MOTU and I still have the options I need.

Re: Desktop Mixer Advice

swishniak, I use a laptop for all this, so I'm already using an external soundcard with an XLR connection and phantom power. I like it. Do you have any suggestions as to what external sound card will allow up to 6 simultaneous devices? Also, it's not about the knobs, I just want the signal making it...

Re: Desktop Mixer Advice

I looked at the ALLEN & HEATH ZED-10, it's not really what I need. Too many Mic/Mono inputs, not enough stereo. These Soundcraft 4 & 10 models are right up my alley. I need to run output from computers, iPods, the kaossilator, etc things with RCA and 1/8" connectors into a single unit before hitting...
