Re: Kontakt 5 issues with Ableton 9 Instrument rack

Thanks for the reply. I'm trying to play two instruments at the same time (e.g. bass and guitar) I opened an instrument rack in Ableton. Dragged a vst of Kontakt into the rack. Loaded in a sound into Kontakt. Dragged in another Kontakt into the rack. Loaded in another sound. Appears to be the most ...

Re: Kontakt 5 issues with Ableton 9 Instrument rack

Since Kontakt has so much routing capability by itself--multiple MIDI inputs, multiple instruments, multiple audio outputs--I'm trying to imagine why you are using two instances of Kontakt. Can you provide more details of your instrument rack and what you're trying to accomplish?

Re: Routing sound into ableton

It depends on your audio interface, rather than Live. Some interfaces have a button that allows you to assign your computer's audio to a stereo channel, which you could then assign to a track in Live. Some interfaces include that feature in their mixer software. Others don't offer the feature at all...

Re: Audio Interface not working after new Windows update..

This happened to me about 6 months ago.... what I had to do was roll back to the Restore Point that Windows creates before it updates. It took almost an hour to complete, but that got everything working again. Then I looked into the specific updates that had been installed and blocked the one that c...

Re: Ableton Keeps Crashing with Kontakt

As soon as the 4th instance of Kontakt is loaded with an instrument and tweaked/played all hell breaks loose and everything crashes. Curious about this... are you running separate instances of Kontakt on four different MIDI tracks? If so, would it help to load all your instruments in one instance o...

Re: Hardware Synths - anyone using the Korg R3 or other older synths?

LOL, old stuff is pretty much all I own!

Korg MS2000R
Korg Electribe ER-1
Novation Bass Station Rack
Yamaha DX7s

I picked up some newer stuff last year, but the bulk of my studio continues to be old stuff, and they continue to get a lot of use. :D

Re: Music Visualizers for posting to YouTiube

Syphon is Mac, Spout is Windows.... They're applications that allow the transference of visuals and audio between applications. Ah, good to know. If you don't have MaxforLive it limits your options to be honest. This would be one reason to go with Remixvideo. It loads into live on a MIDI track as a...

Music Visualizers for posting to YouTiube

Someone recently recommended that I start creating visuals to go with my tracks and that got me wandering around the web looking for ideas. Anyone have any experience with any of the online visualizer-generating services like Renderforest or Videobolt? Or add-on software packages like Remixvideo? Lo...

Re: MIDI Interface and Audio Interface

I'm using Ableton 10 Suite. I have two external synthesizers and a MOTU 828x audio interface. The MOTU 828x has a MIDI I/O but I am not connecting anything to those ports at the moment. If I want to be able to send MIDI Output from Ableton to the two keyboards do I need a MIDI interface that connec...

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

THIS WORKED - You are amazing. THANK YOU :) I had this same problem, but found a way to fix it. In my system, the problem was that Live was set to use 48k Hz sampling, but Windows was set to 44.1k Hz sampling. Click the speaker icon down in the lower right corner of your tray, open up Playback Devi...

Re: Keylab or Komplete Control mKeyboards

I prefer the keyboard controller to be as simple as it can, like the Roland A49, and add something like Push for controlling the DAW: But if you want other option: Roland APro line as nice keys. That looks like a pretty nice option. It's about 1/3 more expensive than the other controllers I've look...

Re: Keylab or Komplete Control mKeyboards

After looking at reviews for Arturia, M-Audio, and Novation on SoundOnSound, I'm starting to think I need to reconsider an Impulse61. I have an Impulse25 and have always thought it was pretty decent, but they do tend to be a bit bulkier than other controllers I've seen and the key action doesn't hav...

Re: Keylab or Komplete Control mKeyboards

Arturia stuff maps to their own synths only and it can even change presets from the keylab. Curious about this... I'm looking at a Keylab myself. According to Arturia's website, the sliders, encoders, buttons, and transport controls are assignable to any DAW, and several of them are supposedly assi...
