dither last, only once, when you bounce down to 16bit.

Simple.

Adding dithering plugins... i think you are making things too complicated for yourself. Are you dissatified with how Live's dither sounds? If not, then turn off the dither on the mastering plugin.

try using Portamento on the Synth (absynth) itself.
then just play new notes & the old ones should glide up or down to the new one, exactly.

you can highlight your arrangement view song, section by section, and click "capture and insert scene" under the insert menu go back to session view, and you will now see your song recreated, part by part, vertically instead of horizontally. Really handy for remixing and stuff, if you break up a tra...

second line of defense against sibilants and pops would be a de-esser plugin. I think maybe there is a preset in Live7's Compressor perhaps, or maybe under racks? Or check www.kvraudio.com

Re: GM Midi Files...

This leads me to belive that there must be a midi command in the midi files/stems affecting the preset as it would for a standard GM player but I'm buggered if I can find it. You are correct, there is a single blip of data on MIDI CC#0 for each instrument (except drums) It can be hard to see, usual...

shelving the high freqs will make the bass less prominent, imo. I like kraze's layering option. Try to find and keep the character elements, such as keeping the mid/high as mentioned... or maybe even use a compressor with a good attack setting to decrease the volume of everything but that short atta...

time sig and tempo changes are easy in Live7, only tempo changes are easy in Live6. Check the manual. I see no reason for you to even load up a single soft synth into your "live set". If you aren't changing anything about the way the synth plays sound in real time, render it to audio, that will use ...

and, yes, I'd only record a guitarist if he or she was recording at a completely different tempo than Live. Such as if I sampled a guitarist from another record, or they really sucked.

Re: help with my set up

Ableton is set to EXT, as is my Korg Electibe. My midi controller (Korg microKontrol) is sending the clock. Try using Live as the master, and slave the mikro and electribes to it. Then see if stuff improves. No Warping should be done at all... all you will need to do is adjust the sample start time...

Re: newb question perhaps; sending cc messages to a midi synth?

I've used the midi mapping tool, but that only seems to let me define hardware controls to modulate Live functions. I can't figure out how to set up a virtual knob/switch etc in Live to modulate my hardware via CC to midi out. I think you have deduced correctly. MIDI mapping allows you to control L...

is normalising really doing all that? i thought it was simply bringing the overall volume up until the highest peak touches 0db? exactly. its not voodoo, its not doing any kind of limiting or compression or fancy trickery. Interesting side note: Live's normalize brings the overall volume up.... or ...
