Re: Unable to Sidechain Anything.

Would it be possible to post a pic of your routing and mixer channels?

This is really odd.

Re: Noise spike in new analog synth.

Hey oh! What's the synth and what kind of interface do you have? You'll likely always have some sort of noise with analog gear, although it shouldn't really be noticeable. I think your issue is that it definitely appears to be a grounding issue, which is frustrating. I hate to say it, sounds like yo...

Hilarious! I grew up in River, but I'm very familiar with Melbourne and Aycliffe. This is crazy.

Re: Superior Drummer 3 VST Crashes! Can anybody Help!

Works like a charm on my external SSD - Mac version. If you've installed externally, it could be a problem with the drive. I've had that issue before - crashes were related to an improperly formatted drive. True thou, way too many asking for help without giving any system details. I tend to ignore t...

Re: Input problem with UMC404HD

On the mixer, have you set the monitor input of your audio tracks to IN? You have to also make sure the dropdown has the relevant input selected (Audio In).

Re: Sidechain groups, is a second compressor usefull?

Ultimately, mess around and use your ears - what sounds best?

My guess is the side gain compressor has pretty fast attack and release as its function is to duck signal, so it would definitely be worth experimenting with a second compressor :)

Re: Ableton Live and Vienna Ensemble Pro

Gotcha, daxxus- I looked into the product more and it looks amazing...but that price! So, I did find something that said the VST3 version of the plugin will support multiple ports in Live (if you use version 10.1 or above). Here’s the post, mate: https://www.vsl.co.at/community/posts/t40525-How-do-I...

Oh mate - this is waaaay above my knowledge level. I can see exactly what you're wanting to do and why you're wanting to do it, but the network thing is throwing me for a loop. That 40-second video doesn't give anything away! I can see he has the server software running on both machines, and I can s...

Re: Anyone score to picture with Live 10?

I've had decent luck with video - but I've only used it for commercials, so we're talking 1 to 1.5 minutes. I didn't find it too cumbersome, and I scored and did sound design all within Abe. I mastered within Live, too. Oh, I've done some corporate vid projects too (3-5 mins) - basic scoring and dia...

Re: No audio to master with new apollo?

Here’s a quick thought - I was in a similar situation a few weeks ago. It sounds silly, but I had selected the big knob to adjust input gain, instead of output level. Try messing with those mate.

(Although this doesn’t address why it works on new sessions and not old ones)...

Re: Getting Plug-ins to Run on Ableton and Logic Pro X

In addition to the above, Ableton won’t run the native Logic plug-ins...not sure if you’re trying to do that.

Re: exporting to WAV file, saves at lower pitch! Why??

I guess it is not a common problem, but any help whould be appreciated ... What happens when you sample your material at 48kHz? That’s a great question. I’ve had trouble with pitch before when the sample playback rate hasn’t matched the record rate. Are you playing the wav back in Ableton or anothe...
