That's a huge difference, like 4 or 5 times the gain.

Simple FX don't do that.

There is nothing in that vid that would cause that, OP needs to provide more info.
Yeah, it looks like this is coming from an external instrument or mic, as far as I can tell from the routing? How's this set up, OP?

Re: Massive X - Massive F (Up)?

Not got Massive, but it might/should be possible to move any folder to where you want it to be using junction points (Windows) or aliases/symbolic links (Mac). These all work at the OS/file system level so the application should see the folder/file as being where it expects to be even if it's somew...

Re: Massive X - Massive F (Up)?

NI really dropped the ball on this one. Once they announced it wouldn't be ready on the original launch date, they should have waited until it was done rather than sell users an unfinished product. -- I discovered that the only controls that can be automated are the 16 macro knobs at the top. Those...

Seriously! I'm not sure when Kontakt 6 came out, but I'm super-surprized that's still pixelated!

Re: Massive X - Massive F (Up)?

Yes, mate! They have got that right - the interface is crystal-clear, and scalable too. I think it looks really nice.

Oddly, they haven't done that for Kontackt 6.

Massive X - Massive F (Up)?

Hey guys, I couldn't find anything on the forum about this, so I thought I'd post a few thoughts about the new incarnation of NI's Massive. NI has released a broken/unfinished product - that's totally clear after a few days of messing around with it. It feels like a step backward...but I'm certain i...

Re: Ableton Live 10.1 Audio track send "going crazy"

Man, that's the weirdest thing. I got nothing, man, but I'm really curious about this.

Glue Compressor usually and maybe an EQ.
Samesies. Generally as little as possible. I do sometimes put a tape emulator/saturator on the master - that glues things together too.

No idea about the beat repeat thing. What version of Live you running?

Re: Export not sounding the same as realtime listening?

Have you tried playing the file back in Ableton as opposed to Samplitude? That should sound identical (apart from volume possibly).

Re: Midi on drum bus?

Absolutely, Matt! I do it all the time. Very odd. An empty midi track (i.e. no instrument on it) won't allow you to route to an audio track, which makes sense. A midi track with an instrument on it will. I got Kick 2 on a track here, and I can route the audio to an audio track. Let me see if I can u...

Normalization wouldn't do that, it just sets the loudest peak to 0dBFS and doesn't have any impact dynamically!
Ah ha - you are totally right! I knew that...once.

It actually sounds like some sort of compression is happening on the master? Not sure why that would impact the export though?

Re: Export not sounding the same as realtime listening?

Hmmm, could be that you have "normalize" selected on the export panel? You'll want to make sure that's not checked.

Re: Chopping audio

If you want to do it automatically, the low effort version is to use beat repeat. If you want to do it manually, like I do, drop the audio into arrangment and use ctrl & e to split the clips where you want to do the edit. Each sub section then can be edited separately, reversed, pitched down, stret...

Re: Not able to receive audio into "external Instrument" plugin

Sounds like you need to either configure the outputs of your interface or configure/select the correct inputs within Ableton/external instrument device. Hard to say....need more infos.
