Re: Mapping Komplete Kontrol VST into Live

I'm trying to map IMPACT SOUNDWORKS - Shakuhachi flute and it does not work. When I try to get get the controls into Live (click CONFIGURE) it does not grab any controls. Another problem with this instrument is that it is not mapped into KK controls as well so if I enable showing the dials on the t...

Re: Audio stem headroom

I generally use 32 bit floats for stem exports since you dont have to really worry about export levels at that resolution (as long as you are not doing anything super crazy). Even if you clip at 32 bit, the clipping can be reversed (but that said the engineer might not know this). how can bit depth...

Re: Importing Kontakt NKI files?

Can anyone successfully import an .nki file, as described in the manual (double-click in browser to import and create a Sampler)? When I try this, Live simply freezes; tried it with 8.3.3, 8.3.4 and now the latest Live 9 beta. Same result every time. I believe this only work on very old nki patches...

Re: Audio stem headroom

Headroom on the original master was -8db, when I export and import at as audio the max volume on master is now 0db. Is this just the way Live works? Normalise was disabled on export, so does the import automatically normalise audio and wav files? Do the Analysis versions of the audio files retain t...

Re: At My Wits End

I generally like the auto arming feature for basic DAW/Producing applications. But for live performances, it is a nuisance especially when needing to use multiple controllers as the functions can conflict with other controllers in regards to track selection/arming. The only real solution I've found ...

It'd be really cool if this happened.
They must have revamped it.

I remember trying Logic's Matrix editor a few years ago and I wasn't too impressed.

Re: High resolution Controller with knobs for playing synths

I am looking for a controller which offers a higher resolution than 7Bit MIDI CC for controlling synths in Ableton. Especially I have a problem to get smooth filter sweeps with Roland Cloud JX-8P Zenology, but also fine tune nuances of pitch with bx_oberhausen etc.. I would prefer (large) knobs, bu...

My favorite effects

Convolution Reverb
Color Limiter
Poly ( a different take on Analog)
Pitch Drop (a very useful easy to use effect)

Re: My old MacBook Pro died, what should I get?

I hear the Mac Minis are pretty good (the newer ones but can't confirm). I would think they would probably be more equivalent to a MacBook Pro in performance but not sure. Main drawback is no included monitor but plus is that the Mac Minis are the most sensible, affordable solutions. They are relati...

I've noticed the CPU tends to run a bit high even on really small projects. Is it better to get a self p...

Re: Exported audio sounds quiet, half volume of what it should be.

Will try that, but i am wondering why you can put one of those commercial tracks through ableton, with no effects and it comes out the other end quieter. Have experienced this making remixes and mixes. I dont have this issue. But I would check the following: 1. Audio track volume fader is at 0 db. ...

Re: Are MIDI Capabilities OK or Weak?

Thanks for the replies! I've been reading the manual and playing around with the trial version. One MIDI-related thing that I haven't figured out is as follows. There seems to be no easy way to insert MIDI CC messages on a track (e.g., insert Modulation = 0 and Pitch Bend = 0 at the beginning of a ...
