Swing Grooves "-50" thru "-75": Which is actually a triplet?

I'm trying to get a swung-eighths groove on Ableton. By swung eighths, I mean, SWUNG EIGHTHS: for non-theory people out there, that entails subdividing each beat into EXACTLY THREE eighths. Kinda-swung grooves are awesome in the right setting, but I need precision right now. So I type up "swing" in ...

Re: MIDI File is Twice As Fast As I Want It to Be

Wow; answered my own question—and the feature was staring me right in the face!

Import the MIDI file, open its Clip View, and go to Notes. There are half-tempo and double-tempo buttons right near the top! (they are labeled :2 and *2)

MIDI File is Twice As Fast As I Want It to Be

I exported some midi notes from Sibelius into a .mid file; but, in the file's destined Ableton set (in which I'm already balls deep), I'd made the project's tempo number twice as great as it "should" be because I wanted to hear further subdivided metronome clicks. (i.e. The actual piece is Q=85, but...

Re: Media files are missing. FUCK YOOUUUUU

i mean something is def weird with it anyway: no, it doesn't automatically make a project folder when i do "save" or "save as"; it just saves it as a single .als file in my Ableton folder. This is my folders/whatever setup, btw. (it's a mac) Macintosh HD: Users: bgelber: Music: Ableton And within 'A...

Re: Media files are missing. FUCK YOOUUUUU

it's true; i did select "Save Live Set" and not "Save Live Set As..."; but it's a new set, so those two options bring up the same dialogue. i thought it therefore wouldn't make a difference that i chose one or the other...no?

Media files are missing. FUCK YOOUUUUU

:evil: This has been fucking with me for quite some time, but today was the straw that broke me. I create a new set, record a couple doodles straight into it, and I'm done so i then go to Save Live Set; I make a new folder with the project file inside it and put that folder in the overarching "Ablet...

Why do the volume peaks change when you drop in an EQ?

When playing an untouched track from itunes on ableton, the peak is nice and tidy at 0.0 dB. But then I drop an EQ Three effect onto the audio track, and suddenly the peaks are much higher, easily going into the red zone.
Why??? Am i doing something wrong??

Re: How to find the average peak of your track?

this doesn't solve my problem. can someone clarify, IS there a way to QUICKLY find the peak? i don't want to play through a 2 hr mix just to find it. is there an info panel somewhere, or maybe it's a function on Audacity or another program like that?
