Re: Machinedrum SPS-1 UW+ & Ableton

also...when i do go the method of program changes via clips in ableton...the program tends to play for an additional loop before switching to the next. is this an issue with mapping or latency? haven't begun to troubleshoot yet.

Re: Machinedrum SPS-1 UW+ & Ableton

It's the interaction between the sequencer and the sounds that makes Elektron gear so powerful, if you're not going to use it's sequencer, you're missing out on a lot IMO. was thinking the same. i enjoy the parameter locks and in-house effects very much. was just wondering if there was a way to CC ...

Machinedrum SPS-1 UW+ & Ableton

hello everyone. just got myself an sps-1UW+ mk2. loving the thing so far. however I'm trying to figure out ways to integrate it into my ableton live setup. much of what I've read online is many years old, however I've found there are two ways of going about this; 1) use the onboard sequencer and tri...

Re: Simpler / Sampler Newbie Question in Ableton LITE

Hi friend You can accomplish this with sampler. simpler is usually used for single samples to be played on a scale; i personally use it for simple drum samples or anything single-shot. you can ALSO accomplish this with the drum rack; by placing an instance of simpler on a corresponding drum pad, and...

Re: MPC renaissance on sale for 699

that is another reason I can't fuck with it...i feel that for the reason that it is a fancy controller it cannot live up to the legacy of the AKAI MPC name...it simply is not the same fam

Re: MPC renaissance on sale for 699

well...however this promotion could mean that akai intends on releasing a new product??????

or guitar center just has too much stock and is sick of the space it's taking up

tbh im leaning towards the latter

Re: MPC renaissance on sale for 699

I like how NI is making he effort to combine some of their major products. Letting Maschine trigger samples in Traktor, the closer union between Maschine and the keyboard. Akai on the other hand has basically proclaimed that the MPC and their new keyboard are completely different divisions and they...

Re: MPC renaissance on sale for 699

I've always contemplated buying this thing...but it's huge and from what I understand the Maschine can accomplish all the same and possibly more? I used an MPC 2000XL for a while though and really did love the workflow...

Re: Reconditioning 1 2009 MBP

I am in the process of doing the same. It is quite amazing how much life you can get out of an old macbook pro; so long as you don't fill the hard-drive to the seams; even then a simple back up and data-wipe can bring it back to life. I would suggest following the advice of switching to an SSD; they...

Re: What's your feeling on going modular?

modular to me is gear lust...for a whole other level of audiophile that is into electronics and circuits... I believe that there are some into sound itself...and others into the tangible process of creating sound...to me thats the appeal of modular... the first synths built were essentially modular;...
