Re: Push 2 + Map8

Over 1 year later and still "useless" as far as I can tell. Have I missed something? I'm trying to control Microtonic drum vst using Push 2. I've put two Map8 max4live devices next to the Microtonic vst. Mapped everything just fine. Except... no parameter names show up on my Push 2 screen. Only "Mac...

Re: A Brief History of The Studio As An Instrument

Hi erm, any chance the Mauritz von Oswald Loop talk will available on the website? He has had a huge influence on my music and I would love to hear his talk.

Thanks!

Re: Fold Melodic Step Sequencer/Elektron-style "trigs"?

+1 I would love to see some alternative ways to step sequence melodic ideas, and ones similar to Elektron machines. Basically, just input melodic steps similarly to sequencing steps for a drumrack. Then, to change pitch/note, hold down the note/pad and twist a knob to find the desired pitch. Like on...

Re: Drum Synth

+1 I currently use an Elektron Rytm. But I would probably sell it if I could get the same tight and focused workflow in Ableton/Push 2. Right now, Ableton Push 2 are unbeatable for ease of use in sampling, chopping, etc. But I think drum synthesis is still lacking a bit. The max4live individual drum...

Re: Why does Ableton keep adding new features that no one wants?

"Why is it folks always look elsewhere for inspiration for what Live should be?" Because it's handy to have a concrete example to reference a complex idea. Suggestions are ways of proposing things which could be improved. The previous user was doubting that anything "big" could be added, and I sugg...

Re: Since v9.2 Ableton is borderline useless for me

9.2 was the single worst experience I've ever had with a bought-and-paid-for, expensive, professional-level software product. Constant crashes, beachballs and endless hangs. Max4live routinely crashed everything. Horrible. Made music making extremely painful. I was also wrapping up a long-term proje...

Re: Live 9.5: Get fast hands-on access to... VST's they say

I too was disappointed with the 9.5, VST Push changes... I expected to be able to group and name parameters... I think this is reasonable to expect on a controller priced as Push 2 is, so I hope this is the start not the end of the VST improvements. Key! Absolutely right. I know companies are diffe...

Renaming banks, and blank spaces would be welcomed, what mroe do you think is needed? yep, i'd be very happy with just those additions, BUT... if those banks of 8 appeared just as chains do in racks currently – re-nameable, re-orderable and midi-mappable banks for quick blue-hand bank switching – t...

Re: My Complaint With the Direction of Live.

2 cents

When I was on Live 32 bit, M4L was absolutely unusable. Constant crashes and slooooow behavior. Endless amounts of spinning beachballs on the mac. Upgraded to 64 bit... everything works fine.

Won't work for everybody's situation, I'm sure. But it may help somebody. Good luck.

Re: Live 9.5: Get fast hands-on access to... VST's they say

Just wanted to quickly chime in and say this is the exact wish I have also. The fact that it's not implemented yet is a huge reason for me not buying Push 2, yet. Come one Ableton. Seems like this weakness sticks out like a sore thumb, imo. Funny, but it makes me look at that Native Instruments cont...

Mt Indigo

Okay, finally finished up a long term project. Lots of blood, sweat, and tears in this one. Mostly tears. :) I packaged this project in a sort of "narrative wrapper" based on 70's occult films, sci-fi thrillers, governmental conspiracies, shadowy research institutions, etc. Maybe too nerdy for some,...

Hope this helps anybody else that may be having this issue. I had to go to Preferences > Library, and reset the Location of User Library. For me I had to hit Browse and go to Users/myname/Music/Ableton/User Library/ For some reason, not sure if it was updating to 9.2.1 or installing Elektron OverBri...
