Re: 24 bit/16bit wav Render to Mp3 Quality Difference.

Thank you Stromkraft for your experimentation. I appreciate it. I also just did a test and while I can clearly here a difference between a 16/24 bit wav file, I cannot hear any difference when encoded to mp3. I will just convert 16 bit to mp3.

24 bit/16bit wav Render to Mp3 Quality Difference.

If am taking a .WAV mixdown rendered from Ableton and immediately converting it to mp3 to send out to people, will converting to mp3 from 24 bit result in a higher quality sounding mp3 than converting from 16 bit to mp3? I know that a 24bit wav render sounds slightly better than a 16 bit render. I t...

Re: Does clipping above 0db actually cause worse audio quality?

. That using a limiter sounds bad to you probably means that you are driving a not so great limiter too hard. Are you using Lives Limiter by any chance? I've tried using Lives limiter as well as many others and it seems that using a limiter ruins the transients/high end and or makes the overall tra...

Does clipping above 0db actually cause worse audio quality?

Hi, I'm a producer that mixes and masters my own tracks. I've been learning about more of the fine points of mastering but I'm confused about the one rule I keep seeing repeated over and over and over. Don't go over 0db on the master track. I get the theory behind it but most of my mixes do and they...

Re: Moderation of this forum

I find this forum very useful, I've learned many things about music production and Ableton that I might not have heard about elsewhere. It's sad that Ableton doesn't recognize the value this place has. I would think it would be easy to simply have an Ableton staffer as a mod and check in here every ...

Re: 4 things I need help with in Live.

if you hit the "B" key on your keyboard you should enter edit-mode and the cursor changes to a pencil. does this solve your first two problems? I just figured out the solution to number 2 of those 3 issues. Now my only remaining issue with using clip envelopes is how to get the dots to snap to each...

Re: 4 things I need help with in Live.

I'm getting familiar with using clip envelopes but I'm having some issues. I read the manual but it doesn't seem to show a solution. 1. When creating a drum rack clip envelope, I want the dot's to snap to the beginning of notes. I'm creating "transpose" clip envelopes. As it seems, you can move the...

Must my Ableton productions be mastered to sound pro?

I am a hip hop producer. Around 6 months ago I made the switch from FL studios to Ableton and haven't looked back. I now notice a vast improvement in the quality of my mixes. With my Fl studios productions, I noticed an overall improvement in sound quality if I applied the basic mastering effects li...

Re: 4 things I need help with in Live. (Edit: Need More Help)

for No 1, right click on the on the clip in clip view (down at the bottom). you should get some envelope options... and Adaptive Grid, Fixed Grid, Triplet Grid... Change the Adaptive Grid to Narrow or Narrowest, but make sure your Fixed Grid is set to something (not off). That didn't work at all, u...

4 things I need help with in Live.

Hello, I really like Ableton Live and use it alot, but I need help with these 4 things. 1. When mixing, each track fader adjusts the volume in increments of 0.3db when moved up or down, it goes from 0db to -0.3 to -0.7 to -1.2 etc, what if I want the volume of a track to be in between those ranges? ...
