Re: all I want in Live 9 is 3rd Party plugins in Rewire mode

Any evidence yet that Bitwig does not share the same MIDI latency issues that Live has been lumbered with for years? To this day I still cannot sync an Electribe ESX with software synths and other hardware, in Live. Because now that Live is 64-bit capable, decent MIDI timing and dual monitor support...

Re: Notation in Live 9?

Hi folks, The request for notation is definitely known and on our list of considerations. Best, Dennis, for what it's worth, I WOULD like to see notation in Live... ...but with certain limits. It should be visible in the same place as the MIDI editor, of course, but only one stave at a time. Zoomab...

Re: A minimalist approach to songwriting in Ableton

good article but eh.. i write songs by exploring sounddesign, so i DO spend lots of time looking for a sample (or rather, looking for textures in a sample). many many procuder i know have their "songwriting time" like this aswell. depends on what music you do. but good article nonetheless and some ...

Re: so whats ur preferred method for finding that right kick?

Obsessing this much over a drum sound is one of the reasons so much electronic music sucks nowadays. Too much emphasis on production, not enough on composition.

Re: Adam A7's

Opals are nice but pricey. A7s are the minimum I would want to work with. But consider trying Focal CMS65s for a.. "next step up".

Re: minimal; the new excuse for boring tracks?

*Passes 3Phase his new elitist cap*

They both produce thoroughly boring minimal music, Villalobos seems a tiny bit more able to write grooves. But why do they need to go on for 10-20-30 minutes?

Oh yes, I just remembered you're a troll. Leave the grown-ups to discuss the important things.

Re: minimal; the new excuse for boring tracks?

Yes, I agree. And that includes Deadmau5 and Villalobos. I don't care if these guys have production skills, that means fuck all if they can't write a good melody. Could they match house beats to an infectious piano riff? The naughties were all about the conversion of dance music as DJ tools, rather ...

Re: Sequencing an album in Arrangement View

Any ideas how this could be done? There's also the "hard" way of doing it, by making a Cuesheet . You can then run off as many burns as you like with something like ImgBurn . Don't forget to turn off warp and fade for every clip... I'm sure you have, but it's always worth checking if these are stil...
