Re: One-handed drum rack mutes?

I had to find the answer to this myself. The answer is Yes and No! No it will not let you Lock the Mute On and enable you to press the pads to mute but...You can open the drum rack group, Lock the mute on and the mute the tracks(pads) in the group. So on Push 2 you would insert a drum rack. Double t...

Re: 4 stereo input, 4 out audio interface mixer?

Take a look at the Focusrite 18i20. Without expansion it has 8 input combo xlr /1/4" jacks which can be used as stereo pairs and 10 - 1/4 jack outputs. If you expand it with Adat you can have an addition 8 inputs and outputs. I don't have this but I have the next one down which is the 18i8 (Gen2) as...

Re: Ableton DJ looking for browser help

I've come up with a way to DJ with live and Push 2 without having to look at the computer. I can load tracks, do effects, etc. I did a series of Youtube videos about it at the following links: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MtX7im64RTA https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mJftG3I-GSQ https://www.youtube...

Re: why is Live overwriting my track?

Scratch the last post. I know what the issue is and I was able to recreate it. While you are in Arrangement mode and you have the track armed in Arrangement mode you are not recording exclusively in Arrangement mode!! You're actually recording your session clips to Arrangement mode + what every you ...

Re: why is Live overwriting my track?

Looks like you have midi arrangement overdub turn on. Turn off the + sign at the top next to the transport control.

Re: New to Ableton and music pro, start with 9 or 10? Have both

I would recommend working with everything in Live 10. Feel free to watch any tutorial on Live 9 as it will still apply for Live 10. Live 10 added features, synths, ect. to what was already in 9x. As for tutorials on Ableton Live's Youtube channel they have a ton of new tutorials that will help you g...

Re: Launchcontrol XL lights stay on after shutdown

Some computers provide power to USB ports even after shutdown to do things like charging accessory devices after the power is off. This is the reason why your LEDS stay on. You may see a lightning bolt by the USB port mean that it always has power. You can turn this off sometimes in the bios of the ...

Re: Almost come to end of my tether with Windows 10...

Using a 2nd gen 18i20 here on windows 10 with no issues, bear in mind ensure the focusrite is not on a usb hub, as they can be picky with USB ports, and more importantly you are not using the correct drivers. Interesting to hear the 2nd gen is working good. Maybe I just need to get a get a newer so...

Re: Online production courses

Take a look at https://www.noiselab.io/ Back when they were in pre-release they were giving away the Electronic Music Production I, II and III, DJ with Ableton Live and the Synthesis course. I have watched almost all of these and must say they were pretty good. The aforementioned courses were instru...

Re: Newb Advice needed - Audio interfaces

Cheers for advice! So, are there any devices similar to the APC40 that have an audio interface built in? Or maybe a midi keyboard that does? If not is a Scarlett 2i4 any good? I'd like to find something cheaper to be honest is anyone has any recommendations. Thanks!! You typically will not find man...

Re: Cueing in Ableton

I use Push 2 and a Novation Launch Control and can do a DJ set without ever having to touch the computer... Quick question - why the Novation Launch Control in addition to the Push 2? Can you not just use the Push 2's Session mode to launch the clips? I don't question critically, moreso out of curi...

Re: Abelton dj setup

Perhaps I can shed some light on your setup. I used to have the 6i6 and it can be a bit quirky to understand. While I'm not familiar with the DJM-800 I did look at the pictures and it doesn't look that complicated. It sounds like you're trying to feed the ouputs of the 6i6 to the inputs of the DJM-8...

Re: Surface Pro 4 for Live?

I'm much like you in that I don't play gigs and just do my own self projects. That being said I have had the SP4 i5 8GB 256GB since it was released and it has worked just fine for everything I do. I'm using the SP4 with Ableton Live 9, Push 2, and a Novation Launch Control but I also use Reason as w...
