Re: The Bass Conundrum

The sound after 30 seconds is the 808 kick drum with a long release to my ears. Its then compressed. Look on youtube there are loads of tutorials on how to compress kicks like this (just type in the genre) :) I've tried similar stuff with Big Kick kick synth, you can extend the release and hold to ...

The Bass Conundrum

I need some help on how to create a certain type of bass sound, as in example https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gmYZV8vZAHk - after about 30 seconds, that full bodied, almost toneless weight under the kick. I've tried everything I can think of....side chaining off another track with the same kick with...

OK to throw out old v8 manual & box?

I'm curious to know if I could throw by old install box + manual (v8) and whether it has any value since I'm now up to date with 9.2. Any help appreciated

COMPATABILITY: Ableton projects between machines (+Hardware)

I’m trying to plan for compatibility issues with Ableton between my Windows 7 PC and a laptop running Windows 8.1. The sort of things I’m trying to understand are these: 1. Are there any issues with loading projects up, e.g. will my samples need to be wrapped up into a single folder and 2. Will I ne...

Re: Is it possible to load ALL clips into RAM as default?

On older sampler instruments you worked with a lot less RAM and didn't seem to have much issue loading a complete song worth of samples and then some. Example: Roland MV-8000/8800 has a max of 512mb of RAM, all samples are loaded into RAM at all times yet you could load a project with many songs (1...

Re: Is it possible to load ALL clips into RAM as default?

Be aware that you may run into memory issues depending on your situation and setup. 10 x 6 minute songs decoded to 24bit will total around one gb of memory. Many devices/ vsts require a sizable memory overhead to function correctly, not to mention the OS requirement. So if you are converting your D...

Brilliant, thanks :D

Is it possible to load ALL clips into RAM as default?

Could anybody advise if you can do this, rather than choosing it for every clip, individually?

Many thanks

I've had this twice now too. Takes about 1-2hrs to restore my samples, presets, etc in all the folders! :x :x

I'm assuming you have Ableton chosen? Also, if you go to midi mapping mode in Live, make sure the encoders aren't mapped to anything.
Useful, I'll have a go :wink:

Re: Is there a way to extend your # of MIDI assignable controls?

https://www.ableton.com/en/manual/working-with-instruments-and-effects/#using-plug-ins I'd read that section. 17.2 etc. Especially the part about 'Configure'. This is a way for Live to take control of parameters using Live's interface instead of Through the plug in. Once Live has those parameters c...

Re: Is there a way to extend your # of MIDI assignable controls?

Well, a heartbreaking truth is that he Remote is also one of the few controllers that can't be 'locked to a device'. So it'd sort of mirror a lot of Push's activity. However, there are a lot of other options, like the row of knobs that don't even get used. First, to verify, you're using the Ableton...

Re: Is there a way to extend your # of MIDI assignable controls?

The Remote SL MKii can do a lot of stuff! Have you tried using it where you turn off Automap? By default the Remote has the ability to do standard blue hand control, but as a bonus the rotary encoders can display all the parameters of whichever device you are currently using. In the case of a vst, ...

Re: Is there a way to extend your # of MIDI assignable controls?

Thanks. I follow....sort of. I need to do some research as you say but really I'm not a techie guy, I just want a basic way to speed up my workflow using Push and another controller for other things that I find are too deep into doing with Push (e.g. using my own VST's as stated. But when you say, "...

Re: Is there a way to extend your # of MIDI assignable controls?

Thanks for your help. I understand most of what you say, especially the part about keeping track of all the assignments. I currently have a Novation SL MK2 with Automap, but I hate it. I find it too deep and would rather just have a controller that I can use to automate my VST’s easily alongside Pus...
