Went into Options--->Preferences----->MIDI Sync set the launchpad drop down to "none"/"none"/"none" (for device/input/output). Closed ableton, restarted it, went into the options again as mentioned, then selected lau...

Launchpad not powering up?

Sorry for the noob question - I'm sure this is something simple. Last night I plugged in my launchpad and trigger finger for the first time to my laptop. Used them both, mapped to them, had a great time. This morning, I flip open my laptop, get my gear out of my bag and plug in my launchpad and noth...

Re: Newbie - inherited some equipment, need help and direction

UPDATE - it looks like I might be able to use the Roland as an audio interface....yes - an expensive way to do that....but it has a midi in and out on it...and a monitor hook up. Until I can get a fast track pro or something.

Re: Newbie - inherited some equipment, need help and direction

OK Cool....so I need to find an audio interface. Too bad the Mackie Big Knob doesn't have MIDI out on it or that would work. The Yamaha XS8 has MIDI in and out. I also have a Midi to USB cable. So, essentially I have a way to use the Yamaha as a Midi Controller. Two questions: 1. Is the only way to ...

Re: Newbie - inherited some equipment, need help and direction

Newbie - inherited some equipment, need help and direction

Hello crew! A little while ago my family and I (Dad, brothers) decided to setup a recording studio to record classic rock. Well, we all went our separate ways and moved around the country. I was lucky enough to inherit (buy out) the little studio we had setup. I am really wanting to get into electro...
