Re: Avid Artist/MC Control + Artist/MC Mix Setup Guide

Question to everybody in this thread: when using plugins (VSTs) within Live with this controller... 1) Does the LCD showcase the values of the different paramaters being shown at that point in time? Can you program the LCD to show you the actual value of the paramater in question (AKA "378hz" instea...

"Auto-Open Plug-In Custom Editor" but for when loading a set

Hi All, Is there any way to emulate the "Auto-Open Plug-In Custom Editor" for when I'm opening a set? I have a live performance template with a number of soft synths on different tracks. When I first load the set, every time I switch to a new track, I need to manually click the "Plug-In Edit" button...

Re: Novation Zero SLMkII (no automation using automap in Ableton

Lol whoops that was simple. I had accidentally disabled the "Record Automation" button in session view. That's working now!

Re: Novation Zero SLMkII (no automation using automap in Ableton

I had this working last week (with a Remote SL 25 though). I just changed up some of my Automap configuration and can't for the life of me get it to work again... I was really stoked to have automation recording live into MIDI clips in Session View. I perform a show where I jam everything in session...

Re: Dynamic sidechain EQ?

@driven - did you ever figure anything out to your liking with this? I'm curious about the same things that you were asking about a number of years ago.

Re: Automatically select device for remote control w MIDI?

Just bumping this thread from way back. Does anybody know if this has become possible (in a less roundabout way) sometime in the last 6 years?

MadShifta in Ableton Live? Alternate live pitch shifters?

Does anybody know if MadShifta would work on a modern day Mac OS X running Live 9? It seems perfect for what I want to do, but I can't get either the Audio Units or the Mac VSTs to work properly. link: http://bram.smartelectronix.com/plugins.php?id=2 I essentially need to be able to pitch shift an a...

Re: L9 Overdub's workflow is a show killer for several users

Hi all, I just wanted to apologize if I came off as a jerk above. I'm just really upset because I lost 2 recordings of live looped sets that I was really proud of. I do a fully improvised show in Live where I play melodies and harmonies with Midi controllers in real time. Previously I'd used sampled...

Re: L9 Overdub's workflow is a show killer for several users

On further exploration, it seems like the Midi Overdub (button from my APC20 again) works just fine and toggles the new "Session Record" button if I DO NOT have any audio tracks recording. As soon as I have an audio track that's recording, pressing the "Midi Overdub" button (APC20) does nothing. Cli...

Re: L9 Overdub's workflow is a show killer for several users

Hello, I perform a live looped show in Ableton Live where I need to be able to turn Midi overdubbing on and off. I have 9.0.4, and I cannot do this. My problems are: 1) When I hit the "MIDI Overdub" button on my APC20 - half the time nothing happens. I need to actually go into live and click on the ...

Using 2 APC20s without combination mode? Is this possible?

Hi All, I have 2 APC20s that I'm using for a show next week. I'd like to have the 2 machines control separately. To make this statement more clear, one machine should always be on tracks 1-8 (unless I move it of course). The other machine should be able to start at 9-16 (as is normal), but I want to...

Re: Toggling Record Arm with APC20?

This is usable to record arm more than one track initially, but it fails after that. If I press any one of those armed tracks with the intention of un-arming it, i end up unarming everything. If i press a non-armed track, it ends up arming itself while unarming everything else. Unfortunately not the...

Toggling Record Arm with APC20?

Hi All, By default, pressing a record arm button on the APC20 makes that track be the sole recording track. I'd like to be able to have multiple simultaneous tracks be recordable, and I'd like to be able to switch whatever is recording on the fly. Holding the command/ctrl button while clicking the r...

Re: Selecting a clip without launching it with an APC20?

so there's effectively no way to do this without dropping some more cash to buy max4live?

and does your device do this for APC20s as well or solely for APC40s?
