Re: TB-3 tempo is off with MIDI sync through Scarlett 2i4

I had a Focusrite Scarlett 6i6 myself and had a lot of Midi sync issues and hangs on Windows 10. Their drivers are horribly outdated with terrible support! I tried everything ( even gotten a replacement to rule out hardware issue ) and got so fed up with it, so I returned it back to the store and go...

Re: MPC 1000 vs. Maschine mikro

old legacy hardware that 1. has a usb port that allows one to send audio and midi back and forth from computer to mpc and mpc to computer, the mpc-1000 is class compliant so it shows up as an external hard drive on your computer and you can drag and drop samples and midi files to and from. 2. the m...

Re: MPC 1000 vs. Maschine mikro

Hey Guillermo, I have already tried the push from a friend, and it really didn't suit me. I does way more than I need it do, and for what I need to do (solid drum tracks) I have heard it isn't necessarily the best at. Anything to do with melody I'll do through a midi keyboard. Which is why I am lea...

Re: MPC 1000 vs. Maschine mikro

If all you want to do is use Live, then why even going for any of these? The best Controller for Live is Push. Push 2 is amazing for sampling, but if you budget won't allow it, you can get a very good deal on Push 1 these days. MPC and Maschine are doing what they do in it's own right and do it well...

Re: NI Komplete Crossgrade.

I believe he is saying you need to buy Maschine to get the Komplete discount. I think it is also available with their keyboards though so that might be a better option. Maschine is great. Just don’t try to use it in a DAW unless you love confusing routing, resulting limitations, and pulling your ha...

Re: Live 9.5 crashes/issues

It's a shame that it's something that can be such a PITA, but I wish more people would do this once in awhile. I bet it solves a ton of problems, and I personally believe my yearly fresh installs are one reason I rarely have computer issues with making music. Anyway, thanks for chiming in and shari...

Re: Push 2 not working - Windows 10

It just started working. No idea how. Just turned it on again and it turned on...thanks. Push 2 is buggy as hell on Windows 10! Best procedure I found, is to start Ableton Live first and when it's fully loaded, then (and only then) turn on the Push 2. That seems to be working best for me. Though, I...

Re: Ableton serously?! Library erased after launch of 9.6 !

What contradicts file paths being the issue in Guillermo's case, is the fact that these did work up until the update. Indeed. In fact, according to his statements, they continued to work even after the update . It was only later after having some problems with Push2 that he noticed they were missin...

Re: Ableton serously?! Library erased after launch of 9.6 !

If the files were really deleted you should stop working on that HD and try a recovery tool like Recuva to get the deleted files back that should still be there if you didn't write (much) on the affected HD... Doesn't find the cause for what you describe, doesn't cure the bug if there is one, but i...

Re: Ableton serously?! Library erased after launch of 9.6 !

my entire Ableton installation, plugins, Library, etc are on a seperate dedicated disk. In Windows Explorer the short cuts and folder info to my Music Productions sub-folder still exist, so Windows OS still thinks the folder exist, but it doesn't. It's gone. Could you elaborate a little more on you...

some kind of conspirational theory then that's not an useful attitude. that's not a useful word. you could at least have the decency of using real words when you're going the long winded route of being condescending. I'm not. That's all in your head. I just feel that many of us users, myself includ...

Re: Too risky to buy a firewire interface these days?

If you are going to buy a new Audio Interface today, why would invest in old obsolete Technology. I am sorry, but that's what Firewire is today. It has been replaced by thunderbolt / displayport years ago and now USB-C is about to replace Thunderbolt. It just doesn't make any sense to me. But to eac...

Hi GB, https://www.steinberg.net/en/products/steinberg_yamaha/cubase_ai.html Regarding the above LINK, it states that the UR44 comes alongside CUBASE Ai. Because I am currently in the middle of a 1 x year college course in basic Music_Tech, I am taking into college my laptop, external HD, Steinberg...

Re: Ableton serously?! Library erased after launch of 9.6 !

No backups/clones? The last two weeks no. I had been struggling so much with all the crashing and hanging issues with Ableton Live 9.5, Push 2 and the Focusrite, that I was happy when I actually got things running for a bit to actually do something. So I forgot. :( When upgrading to Live 9.6 last w...

Re: RE: Lite / Focuserite / Win_10 (help?)

Well, what I hope is that when time comes that they cease driver support for UR44, that they push a firmware update, so we can use Class Compliant mode on Windows and OSX as well. Maybe it already works (With some features maybe not working like DSP FX), haven't actually tested it yet. RME has actu...
