Re: Auto fade knob on release

Only ones I know of are Ned Rush's Knobulator (self-contained multi-FX) and Grid Ninja (macros that can be mapped) in Tricky Traps, both paid. https://isotonikstudios.com/product/ned-rush-glitch-pack/ https://www.ableton.com/en/packs/tricky-traps/ There is Momentary Knob (free), but it works differe...

Re: No sound after adding drum rack???

You select and arm 2 or more tracks using the same "ctrl/cmd" modifier you use to select multiple items in any other software.

It is years since I last used Reaper, but I doubt it uses another standard.

Re: Ableton glue compressor as limiter problem

Glue is not a limiter, it doesn't work like a limiter at all. A limiter needs infinite ratio and near instant attack, Glue's ratio is too low (10x max) and attack speed too slow (0.01 ms max, no lookahead). https://www.ableton.com/en/manual/live-audio-effect-reference/#22-22-glue-compressor The Soft...

Re: Why I never should have sold Ableton

Buy Suite again and you will forget all that other stuff, at least while you have fun with Live.

Maybe even use as a motivation to keep doing stuff in Live to forget about all that.

I would straight uninstall the other stuff, out of sight, out of mind.

Re: Can't drag and drop mp3s in Live

It is the file explorer that has to be running as admin, not Live. You can't drag from a non-admin app into a admin app. If you set Live to run as admin, then any app you want to drag files from into Live has to be running as admin too. That's how OS security works. Live doesn't even need admin perm...

Re: Internal change counter???

Some M4L devices just have that problem due to how they are built, you either fix them yourself, ask the dev to fix it (but the device may depend on working like external user input, and hence it may not be fixable), remove the device or live with the problem. But "scrapping m4l prefs" won't do noth...

Re: Ableton Live 10 GUI – Clip Colors

Sorry, I misread, I think I confused this post with another thread about Live's skins/themes (I tend to open several tabs at the same time).

Re: Problem: Duplicate/Multiple Samples

Live doesn't really duplicate files, unless the user explicitly told it to.

Re: Where are the instruments?

"Drum synths" are several smaller devices named "DS something", like "DS Kick", DS for "Drum Synths", Kick because it is designed for kick sounds. There is a Drum Rack with all of them loaded in the common General MIDI drum mapping. You can find them in the Browser, Packs>Core Library>Devices>Instru...

Re: Ableton Live 10 GUI – Clip Colors

Live 10 can use Live 9 skins, you just drop them in the Themes folder (much like you loaded 3rd party skins in Live 9).
