Re: recording electric guitar with ts cable to audio interface is very quite (PLS HELP)

Just guessing... but doesn't running your electric guitar straight into your audio interface require a Hi-Z input? The Komplete Audio 1 doesn't have one of those. Not an expert on this, but I think you need to DI box between the guitar and the audio interface.

Re: Lock parameters in VSTs while browsing presets

Sounds like part of your issue could be solved by clicking the disk icon on the Live plugin and saving your changes to your own personal preset. You wouldn't have to tweak the release of your bass sound every time you return to it because it would be saved for you. Works with every vst, instrument o...

Re: Mertronome Count-in Only

Click on the pull-down arrow next to the metronome tool and select the number of bars of count in. Then *don't* activate the metronome tool. The metronome will only click during the count in as long as the tool is not active. Additionally, any clip can have negative measures. Simply change the Start...

Something other than "LFO"? The native Live MIDI effect?

Re: Create a Scale from Midi Selection?

Yes, you can do exactly what you describe. The matrix you see in the Scale effect is completely customizable. You could create scales that don't even exist (if there is such a thing). Dial in the Base (root) note then click on the boxes in the MIDI effect to choose the notes you want. Hit the save i...

Re: Possible to make a groove with first beat ahead of 1.1.1?

Try swapping the positions of your beginning loop and start markers. Put the start marker at 1.1.1, but put the loop 1/32 before 1.1.1. It should then play the extra note just before hitting 1.1.1.

Re: Possible to make a groove with first beat ahead of 1.1.1?

Open your MIDI clip and look at the Start fields. Change the start from "1" to "-1". This will open up some space on the front end of the MIDI clip that will allow it to start before 1.1.1. You can then drag the start marker closer to the right if needed. This works with audio clips as well.

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
