Re: best Maschine + Live workflow for my situation

I use maschine as a vst plugin within ableton, usually put a kit together I am happy with and start jamming some drum shit. Once I'm happy with it arm an audio track to re-sample and record each sound back into live as audio. Make a new audio channel for each sound kick, hats, claps, perc etc and dr...

Grouping Tracks or Sending to Audio Channel

Thought I would throw this out there...

Are there any differences and/or benefits people have noticed between simply grouping a load of tracks or setting up new audio track and sending relevant audio to the new audio track?

Cheers, K

Loading Samples from External Hard Drive

I have recently bought a new macbook pro 15" 2.0ghz 8GB and I am starting to think I may have made a mistake and jumped the gun too quickly instead of waiting to have the cash for the 16GB machine with more storage space. That being said I want to make the most of its performance, I am thinking abou...

Re: Finishing tracks: Something that helped me

great post, i agree with most things said on this, yes I have tonnes of unfinished tracks because I work on the fun bit creating a cool groove, bassline and what not then when it comes to arrangement and transitions and the boring shit I just sack it and move on!

Re: Ableton Live CPU usage etc...

Only 3rd party effect I have is 1x PSP vintage warmer on drum bus, the rest are native ableton compressors and eq's etc!! ASIO4A...

Re: How often do you use presets?

I probably sample more than I use VSTs at the moment and I don't think anyone should be ashamed or guilty for using samples or presets, I use Omnisphere a lot the sound library on it is enormous and some of the sounds are insanely good! Most of my basslines come from samples, 808 kick drums and the ...

It's a great laptop with plenty of muscle, probably twice as powerful as my desktop which i also make beats on, I've attached image below of ...
