Re: External FX routing

You'll need to connect outputs 3/4 on your audio interface to the input of your FX unit. Route the output of the appropriate track in Live to outputs 3/4 of the interface. Then the output of the FX unit has to be connected to two of the inputs on the audio interface. Set up an audio track to record ...

Re: Tascam Hardware

I feel your pain, I really do. My favorite Mackie mixing board, that was the heart of my studio for years, had drivers that didn't work past Windows 7. A lot of people tried to get it work, a tiny minority succeeded, and the only thing they could attribute it to was some mysterious combination of ne...

Re: Tascam Hardware

According to the latest release notes from Tascam, it's a miracle the control surface works at all. They stopped updating drivers back on Windows Vista. I'm afraid you may be out of luck. Sorry.

Re: iLok deactivate licenses

Not sure I understand why you need to deactivate your iLok licenses. A couple of years ago, I upgraded from Win 7 32 bit to Win 10 64 bit, and installed a new C: drive to make the transition cleaner. I reinstalled Live and all my plugins, along with everything else on my computer. I didn't have to d...

Re: Limiter on Master track – yes or no?

It really depends on what you're working on and what you're trying to accomplish. It can be a good idea to put a limiter on the master bus when you're composing, recording, and arranging your track. It's there just to keep a lid on things so you don't have to worry so much about your track levels. I...

Re: I honestly have no idea where to begin.

Uninstall the Realtek drivers, then go into bios and disable the motherboard soundcard. Sounds like Windows is mucking things up because it can't make up its mind which audio device and drivers it should use. That would explain why the Windows script fixes it, even though it's temporary. You might l...

Re: Can't hear Audio sound from Windows&Youtube while using Live

Both my hz are 48k but i still cannot do anything. I do not have an interface yet which is what others are saying will help. Do you think if i get an interface it will make a difference? When you say "I cannot do anything", could you be more specific? Sounds like nothing is working at all. If nothi...

Re: How to correctly route input MIDI channels to instrument MIDI channels without tons of individual MIDI tracks?

Looks right to me. This is exactly how I set this up using Kontakt or UVI Workstation. The stand-alone versions of these instruments (the ones I mentioned, at least) have the routing selections built into menus, so you don't see them broken out individually as tracks, but I can't think of any DAW I'...

Re: Plugin Menu System

Try switching to vst3 where you can. It does this automatically (it's part of the spec, as I understand it). I've been switching all my plugins as they become available. Kind of the opposite of what you're thinking though, because vst3 forces all the plugins to be installed in one common folder. So ...

Re: multiple templates

Creating multiple Template Sets In addition to this “master” default template, you can create additional template Sets for different types of projects, each with their own unique configuration of tracks, devices, etc. To do this, create a folder called “Templates” within your User Library.

Re: Stop adding silence at the beginning of imported audio

This has already been asked and answered in this thread:

The silence is caused by the way mp3s are encoded. It has nothing to do with Live.

Re: Multiple tracks using same instrument

I know that this is possible with the routing, but each track uses different midi clips, so it's not possible to send the same signal. I have used a bunch of midi tracks that are using same multisampled for instance guitar samples. Of course I can copy the same multisampled instrument to another tr...

Re: Grouped Tracks & Exporting Stems Problem

I can see why it works this way... in a real recording studio, the stem would be a print of the group, not the individual tracks inside a group. The group is what gets sent to one channel of the tape, in the old world. In cases like the one in this thread, using sends/returns seems like a more "real...
