Re: Afraid to take the cake out of the oven

When you're genuinely unsure if the cake is ready for icing or not, why not share a little of it with others to see what they think? You don't have to plonk it straight on the main display shelf of a boutique patisserie or anything, just pass some slices around at a small dinner party - amongst peop...

Re: Your Master Track

Firstly, to address the questions from the OP directly: With the odd exception, I generally write beat/bass heavy electronic music at a variety of tempo. I don't use anything on my Master channel strip whatsoever, other than a single metering plugin; specifically Sonalksis Free G which I have found ...

Re: plugin gui vanishing?

Agreed.

Aside from the open-reopen merry-go-round, in my case it makes third party metering software pretty much redundant too.

Definitely annoying.

Re: plugin gui vanishing?

Hi all, I'm also having this issue running the latest version of Live (8.2.2), though plugin window GUIs will also disappear after about 30 seconds of just having them open - with or without direct plugin activity. It seems to affect all third party plugins - but not native Ableton FX - including So...

Re: Question: The Speed of Human Hearing

10 ms is the allowable latency for hearing-aids, anything longer than that starts to be discernable as separate from the originating event, less than 10ms is perceived as part of the event. As a guide to human latency: An electrical pain applied to the human wrist is detected in the brain 3ms later...

Re: Question: The Speed of Human Hearing

The variables are so huge it's not worth worrying about if you ain't got the specifics. What type of sound/wave? Are they the same pitch or different pitch? what volume? how old is the person? etc.etc. but I guess if you mean from a production point of view then the boys above have got yer answers....

Re: Question: The Speed of Human Hearing

People can generally perceive two transients that occur about 20-30 milliseconds apart as separate events. Closer together than that and they merge. If you take recorded speech and play it back twice, separated by about 50 milliseconds, it becomes much harder to understand. Why do you ask? Thanks v...

Re: Question: The Speed of Human Hearing

Are you serious? Oddly enough, I am serious. Over tired perhaps, but serious nonetheless. :D I'm aware that sound has a fixed speed of about 343 meters / second that is also affected by the medium it travels through, (ie. air, water); but I'm taking a punt and suggesting that body parts involved in...

Question: The Speed of Human Hearing

Hi All, I'm guessing that some of you would already aware that 'perfect' human hearing usually ranges from frequencies of 20 Hertz to 20,000 Hertz; but I'm interested in the concept of how *fast* we can hear. As in, how many microseconds difference a 'perfect' human ear can discern between two sound...

Re: What would be the optimal setup for multipal HDDs?

My first question, is 10GB enough free space on a boot drive? Also, as it's a SSD would there be any performance difference in which partition i used for my production boot? I'm not sure about Windows 7 - as I still use XP on all of my own systems - but I'd personally view 10GB as a bare minimum of...

Re: Running Ableton Live on a Netbook?

All good, I appreciate the info regardless as it's difficult to get an idea of what's available - and how hard I might be able to push it - without getting hands on.

I'll throw the idea of a Viewbook into the mixer and take a look at the it in terms of size. Thanks again for the replies!

Re: Running Ableton Live on a Netbook?

As an aside the other reason for going with the netbook was the availability of low cost touch screen kits Oddly enough, this is another of the reasons I was looking into this option myself. I imagine the smaller screen would be a little awkward in some ways, but coupled with level of both price an...

Yeah, for sure... I forget that sarcasm doesn't always come across properly in writing... And that was kinda double sarcasm, if you catch me...

Re: An alternative method to song writing

Different situations do call for different approaches - and IMHO it's wise to be flexible - but as a general rule, I write similarly to the method you've outlined; more specifically in four "stages" that seem to work for me: 1. Concept (ideally 2-4 hrs) Get down all key sounds that make the tune ind...
