Re: ways to make Ableton easier, more portable, to use???

I'm with robertaplant68, qwerty for everything. Combine qwerty with the midi effects like Chord, Arpeggio, and Scale, and you can do a lot, though not sure if it'll cover all your needs. I have a midi effect rack set up with all the midi effects I need, then just turn the ones off that I don't need ...

Re: Why I stopped using most third party plug-ins

This is cool, and I have considered it, but there are just too many great things that third party developers have built that I would never even come close to building. One thing I did do is limit myself to just a few developers, to try and contain the madness. Plus I still like the whole "hey what's...

Nine point two

Boobitty boobitty boobitty boo

It's already got me writing songs!

Mostly curious about Max for Live 7. Don't have Push, and the other things don't really stand out to me.

Re: Is Ableton going to get on board with mobile or what?

I didn’t realize TouchAble now also includes all audio in the app and you don’t need to even use your computer at all. I was under the impression it’s just a controller app. This is great news! Touchable has a really cool mode called: provide your own sounds mode. Let me demonstrate: Boop Bap Boop ...

Re: Anyone here get the new Renoise Redux?

Nobody?

Can't find much of anything about it, maybe trackers aren't old school enough to be cool and retro?

Anyone here get the new Renoise Redux?

http://renoise.com/redux

I know the basic idea behind Renoise, but not all the details. Don't much feel like trying to learn a new piece of software at this point, so I'll probably stay away for a while. If anyone has any impressions I'd like to hear them though.

Follow Action to specific clip

Would be nice to be able to set a Follow Action to a specific clip. Maybe there is a trick to doing this already, but seems to me that it would be easy enough to add, relatively speaking of course. It would give a little more flexibility to the playback order of clips. I hope you at least consider it!

Re: Synthi AKS Pack?

Went ahead and got it... For future reference, and anyone else wondering what this pack has... There are three folders: 1. Clips. This folder has three subfolders: Acid Loops, Misc Loops, Slow Loops. Basically a bunch of clips. Description says 90 or so total and that looks to be the case. Some of t...

Re: Over-engineering Musical Solutions

As for composition, I'm not too keen on the whole concept of loops in music, and instead use the term "phrase" when describing a snippet of music. Exactly, as a "phrase" is like a full musical sentence expressing feelings and conveying an idea, for example. A "loop" is more of a technical term and ...

Re: Over-engineering Musical Solutions

I don't think the issue is limited to EDM, its a plague which spans most current genres. I was rewatching a Classic Albums, on Pink Floyd, and that band made a lot of full-spectrum noise, but as they played each of the instrumentalists knew how to vary their playing to leave holes through which the...

Re: Synthi AKS Pack?

Thank you! Yeah I looked on their site and couldn't find anything either. Looks like it does have both, multi-sampled instruments and sliced samples. 8)

Re: Over-engineering Musical Solutions

Thanks for the post Tarekith. Good stuff as always. 8) My approach of late has been to only resort to "production tricks" if I have to, and even then keeping them as minimal as possible. To do that I try to think ahead and envision a track's elements first. Not always easy, especially the more compl...

Synthi AKS Pack?

Anyone have this Pack? https://www.ableton.com/en/packs/synthi-aks I'm a little confused as to what it contains. It lists clips and presets, so does that mean it has Sampler set up with multi-samples so you can play it like a synth? Or does it simply have sampled phrases, like melodies and baselines...
