Re: Is ableton garbage for musicians who use physical instruments?

I use Live for live instruments all the time, mate. As do a lot of other folk here...and a multitude of performers and artists. Ableton is a beast, and sometimes it takes patience and a bit of Googlin' to figure it out. Given you've only been using this a week... Like Darren said, direct monitoring ...

Re: Mastered Tracks Clipping my master?

Sounds like there is something very wonky going on here...low signal is clipping. The only thing I can think of is that your kick is clipping inside of Sampler, Kontakt, Kick 2 or whatever you're using for your kicks. Check the device output (NOT the track output) isn't in the red. Happens more than...

Re: Spectrum analyzer on the master.

Yeah, I don't think you can with the native Live devices - although I think that's an excellent example of where doing so would be super useful.

Re: Live Instruments are out of tune

I noticed this too. It’s one of the things making me think twice about Ableton. Standard tuning should be the default, no? This has nothing to do with Live! Yes, I know. It was explained above. It’s J.S. Bach’s fault. Seriously, stating that Live isn’t the issue isn’t helpful. I heard what I heard....

Re: Live 11 is coming !!!

Hello everyone ! Hope I don't sound too "basic" or newbie lobby, but I just need a clear explanation regarding installing Live 11 on a machine where I already have Live 10 Suite installed. Should I install first Live 11...and after uninstall Live 10? ( I do not want to keep both versions). Will I h...

Re: pack: Electric Pianos

Hi all of you, must not be free, but more than 300 € $ L, whatever, is nearly more than the cost of live :D . I will try the free spitfire first (but why do I need to install an installer :roll: ) Interesting: all the example videos at the site are with a band, nearly not possible to listen to the ...

Re: wav file import sounds awful

How are you importing in Live?
Can you provide screenshots of your weird looking audio?

Re: Sustain, Attack & Release for Organ VST

Kind of, but you'll have to get a little creative. You could convert the organ VST into a Simpler/Sampler instrument (or Kontakt) and then mess with the envelopes in the sampler. You'll probably have to record different snippets and reassemble stuff... Or, I guess you could automate the volume envel...

Re: Vocals Doubling/ How to mute master/return tracks

Sounds like you have some tracks with inputs activated - so you're receiving the same signal on some tracks - might require going through each track while playing your vocal to see where those incoming signals are. Another thought - what audio interface are you using? It's really easy on Apollo inte...

Re: Ableton live 10 bug??

Yeah, that "A" thing can get a bit confusing - always make sure the keyboard button on the top right isn't highlighted, too - that will stop A from working (as it turns your computer keyboard into a midi keyboard).

Re: 10 Meter USB Cable for Midi and Audio Interface

Yeah, you should be good, mate.

I think that usually the longer the cable, the more susceptible it is to break. No matter what length you get, the chances are that it will need to be replaced at some point anyway - I reckon go for it.

Re: White noise after exportation.

So, there is no white noise before you export out of Ableton?

Are you using a demo of any sort of plugins (sometimes those will throw in white noise upon export/playback until you purchase)?

Re: Live 10 and UAD Plugins - Bug

Very interesting. I haven't noticed anything (Apollo X4, 16" MBP) but I'll definitely look. I use both Live and Logic and I haven't picked up on any differences. How odd. I will say, the UAD/Apollo side of things can be a little mystifying at times - I'll check this out later and report back.
