Re: Who has dared to follow their Ableton passion?

I feel your pain man. I'm right behind you at 38. I seriously want to follow my dreams. Everything comes at a cost. Are you willing to pay it? Are you willing to sacrifice? Are you willing to be focussed longer than you want to be? I would (and do) try to be wise about your dreams though. I wouldn't...

Re: Where are Ableton's preset+rack folders kept on OSX?

You can actually put it where ever you prefer. I think by default it gets dropped in (username)/Library/Application Support/Ableton/.. I could be wrong on that. I moved it to my Dropbox folder and in Live's preferences, pointed to it there. Now my Live library is shared and synced between laptop and...

Some general EQ advice I read or heard once that has stuck with me:
Cut to sound better, boost to sound different.

I didn't mean to imply they aren't good- I'd love to hear a bit more about what they are like in use (wish there was a demo, like some other ableton add-ons)

Re: Disappointed with ProjectSam Orchestra Ensembel (but there i

Sorry to hear it's disappointing. I was VERY tempted by this- as I've had my eye on projectSAM for a long while. The Orchestral Essentials price tag is just hefty enough that I haven't bought it on an impulse- the Ableton version is definitely in impulse purchase territory- though I was very concern...

Re: Labels and SoundCloud Dropbox ... FAIL

No no, you missed my point. They DON'T listen to it - at all! I uploaded some demo's as private upload (so only the label can see and hear them) and after more then 3 months they have 0 listens. That's what I'm upset about. I'm not waiting for a response I just want them to check it once. If they d...

Re: Labels and SoundCloud Dropbox ... FAIL

You're absolutely right, networking seems to be REALLY important and I'm well aware of that. My problem is that labels provide you with a dropbox but never check what's in it. What's the point of that? I guess Soundcloud's Dropbox is just a way of rejecting 1000's of demo's that would otherwise get...

Re: Labels and SoundCloud Dropbox ... FAIL

Think of how many submissions well known labels get. Soundcloud makes that process even more depersoanlized. I imagine a response via that method would be quite exceptional. In my experience getting recognition and success, assuming you have decent quality work, is part luck and the rest is networki...

Re: Mastering Fail - Thinking about giving up now after 7 years.

I'll expand a bit on what Beatflux said about composition. "Good" music is interesting. What does that mean? It has characteristics that engage the curiosity and emotional interest of the listener. How do you do that? Lots of ways but listening to your track I'll point out just two that I think will...

Re: THE Rack List. (What can you do with Racks?)

Hey guys. I have been MIA for way too long.

I plan to revive this thread and clean it up. I'll find hosting for all of these racks. Help me out by emailing me your rack. I'll post them all up and make it real easy to get em.

Thanks!

Re: ProFire 2626 with Ableton Live 8 Issues

That definitely sounds like a hardware problem. How long is it going to be in the apple store for repairs?
