Re: Is there any way to change the default Drum Rack Simpler volume?

You can save a Simpler preset set to another volume in User Library > Defaults > Dropping Samples > On Drum Rack.

But -12 dB is fine, once you add tracks they add in volume.

There is also the free Learning Synths site and the "Making Music: 74 Creative Strategies for Electronic Music Producers" paid book, which is free for a while due to the pandemic. https://learningsynths.ableton.com/ https://www.ableton.com/en/blog/ideas-offers-making-music-home/ For Live specificall...

Re: Effects Bus BEFORE Individual Track Effects

Besides the stuff M4L allows, (there is Audio Routes from cycling74 too): You can set the Sends to be Pre-FX, there are toggles in the Master Track in Session and in the Return Tracks in Arrangement. [EDIT: This is wrong] You can group tracks individually, then you can use the Sends in the track to ...

Re: Exporting from Ableton Live 10 Lite

You can't upload audio directly to youtube, so the problem is with whatever tool you used to convert the audio into video.

Or maybe it is a web browser problem, so maybe try cleaning the browser cache and deleting the cookies for youtube too (you will have to re-login after that).

Re: Return on Drum Rack Weak Wet Signal

The Sends are by dB, not %, dB is not linear, so it is hard to dial exactly "80%". They default to Post-fader, so the Track/Chain's fader affects both the Track/Chain's and Send's gain. Also, if you had sent 100% to the Return Track, you would have 100% of the wet added with 100% of the dry, since t...

Re: Instrument/Effect Rack CPU Overhead?

Never noticed any CPU overhead for Racks in my ancient Duo Core Pentium desktop, whatever CPU overhead they may have is negligible, unless you use a CPU even older and worse than a Pentium.

Re: Lost files

You gotta find and copy all the files from the old drive to your new one, then use Live's File Manager to find the missing files.

Re: How Do I: Add Velocity Sensitivity to a Fixed Velocity Instrument?

There is a right-click menu option, "Copy to Siblings", that speeds up copying values between devices in a Rack. It may need to be enabled with options.txt, not sure.

Re: True 64 Bit Double Precision engine in next update of Live

"Processing" refers to the internals of the audio effects, not "audio engine" (mixing).

Tracks, Sends, Master and Racks are neutral, audio effects are not .

Note that pretty much all audio interfaces are 24-bit.

Re: True 64 Bit Double Precision engine in next update of Live

As per Ableton manual, Live still uses 32 Bit audio engine in combination with 64 bit engine, which slightly degrades audio quality. Live uses 32-bit WORD SIZE, not "32 Bit audio engine". That's how many bits are used per sample. The "audio engine", that is the actual mixing, is 64-bit double preci...
