Re: Controlling external hardware with ableton´s Max4Live LFO

The speed of the LFO is irrelevant, because it is updating at a fixed rate. (Sample Rate) You need to limit the output rate. The speedlim object is generally used for that. Or you could skip using an audio controlled LFO and use one that works on a timer, which would be another way to limit the outp...

Re: Controlling external hardware with ableton´s Max4Live LFO

This is an expected result. If we could send CC's at audio rates, we'd be doing it all the time. You're running up against the speed limit of MIDI 1.0. The receiving hardware device starts buffering and dropping messages, so it seems like the hardware is running behind. But neither the connection or...

Re: Microtuning of internal instruments

Also increase the Pitch Bend range of internal instruments. Because most native instruments don't have the +-48 semitones range you need for most tuning techniques.

Re: Wavetable - scale envelopes with velocity

I agree that we should be able to modulate the scale of individual envelopes.

There's a workaround, it takes some extra work but it does give you more options to fine-tune.
Assign an envelope to the filter, then map all envelope parameters to velocity.

Re: Undo issues

Some max devices cause constant changes due to being internally modulated or something and this can sometimes affect the undo feature as live sees it as constantly making a change. This is a max issue, not live. No this is about non-optimized M4L devices actually. This can absolutely be avoided. Yo...

Re: odd Push Preference options

Hi Jamie, This is normal. Push is 2 separate MIDI Devices rolled into one. If you press the User button, all MIDI coming from the device will be sent to the Push User Port. Push is also a Control Surface, this is referred to as Live Mode. Ableton automatically connects Push as soon as it is detected...

Re: why so many stuck/hung notes with MIDI?

so 12 years late it is still not fiexd ? You'll need to be specific. This whole thread is a collection of different issues, some of them user error and others using cheap/bad/outdated MIDI interfaces. Are you experiencing issues with sending notes to external gear? If so, what gear and which MIDI i...

Re: Push 2 not recognised by Ableton 10

Keep in mind, its normal to see 2 ports. On Win it'll be "Ableton Push 2" for the Live port and "MIDIIN2 Push 2" for the User port. If you see something like (Ableton Push 2 #2) it might be time to reboot. I think in that case something grabbed the port and loaded a second driver for Push 2. I don't...

Re: Push 2 not recognised by Ableton 10

If the controller is Red in preferences, it means something else grabbed the port.
If another app that supports MIDI is running, you need to disable the Live port in that app.
If no other MIDI Apps are running, make sure all Chromium browsers are closed. WebMIDI can also grab MIDI ports.

Re: MacOSX : MIDI Device Name and ports suddenly changed.

It's because of the MIDI Routing panel in Audio/MIDI. It remembers every device, but you can just make a new profile or remove devices from the default one.

Re: midi channel filter

If you're using it with an instrument on a MIDI Track, it doesn't matter if the input is set to Ch1, Ch16 or All.
Like Darren said, Live sees everything as Channel 1 AFTER it passed though the MIDI Input.

Re: midi channel filter

- Set MIDI Track input to Ch 16 of your keyboard
- Load an External Instrument
- Set the output to the preferred Port and Ch 1

Re: midi channel filter

Maybe I'm missing something, but wouldn't External Instrument do the trick?
