Re: Analog's Voices

1. The manual states it is 2 (or 4) additional voices. So with Unison set to 2, one key will play 3 voices (original+2), two keys will play 6 voices, etc. 2. Yes, as usually OSCs are not counted as separate "voices". A synth with 8 OSCs is still playing one "voice" when you press 1 key, 2 voices wit...

Re: Automation red dotted lines and white lines

(Flat) red dashed lines means there is NOT automation active for that parameter, so it simply shows the current value of the knob/slider/etc. "White" means the automation is disabled. It is usually due to user tweaking the parameter manually (that overrides automation). https://www.ableton.com/en/ma...

Re: What does the Blue Bar do on Midi Editor?

Colors can vary so it is hard to know what "blue bar" you are talking about.

But this part of the manual should cover it:

Re: Deactivated tracks still use CPU

Track Activator just mute tracks. You can see the Track's meters keep showing activity (though grayed instead of green) even with the Track deactivated. Even with playback stopped, if you have a MIDI Track deactivated but still armed, you can play MIDI notes, you will see it still plays the instrume...

Re: Melda MVocoder and Ableton Live Lite 10

Both carrier and modulator are muted in the plugin in your pic.

It is probably some setting inside the plugin, read its manual.

Melda plugins are known for being complex.

Re: HELP ME PLEASE

Racks are saved with the .als Set, and you can also save them individually as re-usable presets.

Re: BPM slave a whole song recorded without a click

There are some "auto-warp" options you can try, but there is a good chance you may have to Warp manually. https://www.ableton.com/en/manual/audio-clips-tempo-and-warping/ https://www.ableton.com/en/manual/audio-clips-tempo-and-warping/#syncing-longer-pieces https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jsHnZUGl8y...

Re: How to disable Mr. Ugly Warp completely??

some time later. But still: Beats can alter the Audio, even if the Tempo of the Session matches the Sample's Tempo. I almost went insane. I play a track, that I bounced to audio within the session. So Tempos match. When I start to play from somewhere within the sample, it is all good. When I start ...

Re: Esay newbie question about IMPULSE

That Backbeat Room preset has a instance of Saturator.

Live Lite doesn't come with Saturator, so that preset is not editable in Lite (needs Intro and above), in Lite you can only play it.

Maybe those help you.

Re: MIDI sync affecting Analog synths - issues : can't play MIDI notes normally anymore

Not sure that's the problem, but 5-pin MIDI has a bandwidth limit, it is pretty low, so if you have many notes plus MIDI CC, then add MIDI sync data, it could be too much. I think USB MIDI doesn't have the same limit. https://ccrma.stanford.edu/~gary/controllers/midi.html MIDI Transmission Standard:...
