New Social Networking Site for Musicians

Hey all, I'm a very happy user of Ableton Live. Thanks so much to everyone at Ableton for making such great products. Anyway, I just wanted to let everyone here know that I have launched a social networking site especially geared for musicians. Sort of a LinkedIn meets Facebook for musicians. You ca...

Re: VIDEO: How to run backing tracks for your band with Ableton

@distaudio That's a good idea with the "1, 2, 3, 4..." count in. We've talked about doing something like that as well. In fact, there are all kinds of things you could do if everyone is using in ear monitors....things like a prompt for the singer to come in at a certain time or count down to the end...

Re: VIDEO: How to run backing tracks for your band with Ableton

As for the "Do More" for the live musician that mech2161 referred to, there are a couple of things I'd love to see. Primarily I'd like to be able to insert a video track for each Scene. So that as I fired off the next song that a corresponding video would play. This would make it so much easier to i...

VIDEO: How to run backing tracks for your band with Ableton

How to run live backing tracks for your band with Ableton: I just posted an article with Video on my blog http://www.TheGiggingMusician.com that shows how my band uses Ableton Live to run backing tracks for our live gigs. I've seen a lot of people asking about this over the years on this forum. Ther...

Re: Feeling hesitant to buy Komplete 7

The price at AudioMidi.com was WAAYYY too good for me to pass up. I finally bit the bullet and bought Komplete 7 yesterday. I'm sure that it's way overkill and there will be some parts of the package that I may never use, but it is a very compelling deal and the parts that I know I will use would ha...

Re: Presonus Studio Live... anyone have experience?

Yeah, all of my overdubs have been recorded into Ableton via the StudioLive. I've also recorded some overdubs into Logic with no problem. There's no requirement to use Capture as your recording device. It's simply provided as an easy to use, basic (very basic) recording software. All the channels in...

Re: Presonus Studio Live... anyone have experience?

Yeah, I've recorded a whole nights show (3 hours) into Capture with no problem. We used 12 tracks and also recorded a stereo mix (which is a cool feature that allows you to record tha main mix in addition to the individual channels). We also recorded a 3 hour rehearsal into Capture. I then exported ...

Re: Presonus Studio Live... anyone have experience?

Yeah, I bought the studiolive about 5 weeks ago & so far I'm loving it. Check out the SL forums on the presonus sight. Also there are lots of videos on YouTube. You can record directly to their software "capture" or to any other daw. You can also route channels from your daw back through the mixer b...

Crumhorn....YOU TOTALLY ROCK!!! This is exactly what I've been looking for and it's been there all along apparently. I read through the manual, searched through the manual, searched the forums, searched google and I could not find this info. So, either it's not very well documented, or I'm a complet...

Re: Abes: PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE Add ability to SAVE SCENES...

....hmmmm, I think the confusion is in the way I use Live as opposed to the way most users use live. Here's my scenario: I use live exclusively to run backing tracks for my band for live gigs. This includes extra guitar parts, harmony vocals, keys, percussion, etc. I use no Midi tracks. I use no eff...

Abes: PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE Add ability to SAVE SCENES...

Please add the ability to Save Scenes from Sets and import them between various Sets. I realize that I can already save sets and import them into other sets, but it does not save all the Scene naming, bpm and color info. I primarily use Live for creating backing tracks. I use each Scene as an indivi...

Re: Pedal board type interface for looping with Live?

The X-Tempo POK looks very interesting (although way more expensive than FCB1010 at around $450). This is not a MIDI controller, but instead it captures keystrokes directly from your computer. You can assign the keystroke to any foot pedal trigger and then use that to control Ableton. It looks dead ...

Re: Maschine: Can it control more than 16 Scenes?

Ok, this question falls into the category of RTM :-) I just looked at the manual for the Controller Editor in the Ableton Live setup section. It clearly says that the next groups of scenes can be accessed via the Loop, <, >, Grid buttons (ie: Hold Loop button, get the next 16 scenes, etc). I haven't...
