Re: Getting into Vinyl Sampling

You have it all about right. A record player of any type, cheap or super expensive. An audio interface, focusrite will work perfectly. All you have to do is, set up an audio track in ableton, arm it for recording, and then record an audio clip while the vinyl is playing. super simple. Then you can d...

Re: Yeco Touch Screen Controller

It looks promising, for sure. My trial of it is in another thread, but my issues may not apply to everyone.... or even most... ) I'm not sure it has the equivalent of "Session Overview" (one should at least be able to organize in 89x8 blocks to correspond to Push), and the colors of the pads should...

Yeco Touch Screen Controller

Just stumbled across this today. It's a software touch controller built for ableton live. Runs on any touch screen, windows and mac. Very interesting especially for people who use Surface Pros and Surface Books. I'm going to try it out over the next week and report back on whether it's a useable con...

Re: export audio DISASTER

USER ERROR just messed around with audio sample rates, and apparently if i export at a higher sample rate the sound is fine... which is interesting because all the sounds were recorded in a lower sample rate and it's the same sample rate I've mixed my music for years... whatever the case, problem so...

export audio DISASTER (SOLVED)

Hi all. I'm mixing down a song in ableton to have it mastered. When I play the song in ableton, everything sounds as it should. However when I export it, the kick drum has this metallic ringing noise to it. Which is completely absent in ableton. I've eq'd the kick several different ways now, trying ...

Re: Maschine 2.4 MAJOR cpu spikes Live 9.5 - PC

ahh, I feel your pain... With the latest update, older projects that I've created in Ableton that would used to play absolutely smoothly, are now causing my cpu to ramp up between 50-80 percent. It's ridiculous actually. I know maschine is a bit cpu heavy as a vst in ableton, which is why I don't us...

Hot Sugar's Cold World

Has anyone checked out the film/doc Hot Sugar's cold world. I watched it recently and was blown away with Nick's (Hot Sugar) workflow. How he samples sounds in the real world and breaks them down and flips them so much in Ableton, until they become a new sound completely. Dude has some serious skill...

Ableton Synth Midi Mapping

Hi all. I've been playing around with a Volca Keys synth and find it's controls quick and intuitive for sound design. I know that ableton's Analog and Operator synths are super powerful. But I haven't figured out which controls to map to my midi controllers. I'm not much a fan of mouse and keyboard ...

Re: Is there anyone who use windows 8

I started using Ableton back when I had all apple products. Macbook Pro, and iMac. Now all I use is aWindows 8 rig I built myself, and a Surface Pro 3. Works fine. I have no complaints with the Windows 8 OS. Others might. But it's just an OS. And Ableton runs fine on it.

Tips for Mastering Ableton?

Hi all. I'm looking for advice on how to master the Ableton program. I have the live suit version 9, Ableton Push and an LPK25. I know my way around the program a bit, but I'm no where near as good as some of these people in the forums and others I see live and on line. I would love to know of any t...
