Re: No Audio Device at Startup

I see this has been discussed before (no surprise), but I didn't find it earlier when I searched.

No Audio Device at Startup

I have Live 9.5 Standard, running on a Windows 8.1 laptop. Sometimes I forget to power on/plug-in the audio interface before I start Live. When I do this, I get a dialog that tells me that there is no audio device. It would be great to have an option to exit Live at this point without changing the a...

Re: Live foot controller other than Behringer?

I have been using an ActitioN MIDI foot controller for a year or so. There are a few different versions. I have the 4-button USB version and it works well for me and was fairly inexpensive at around $80 IIRC.

Re: Behringer X32 causing Ableton midi out unstability on windows

I don't have any direct experience with the X32 (I have an X32 Rack, but don't interface it with Ableton), but I have read in other forums about users having issues with audio interfaces and USB 3.0 ports when the audio device is USB 2.0 compatible. If you are using a USB 3.0 port on your laptop, ma...

Re: Who uses Live with a live band? What tips can you give me?

Thank you! Sorry I missed this post! Do you use a trigger to time stretch tempo? You know, if the tempo varies or you WANT to change the tempo? How does that work exactly? Sorry, it's been a while. Can you just have a trigger off to the side and hit it until it locks into tempo, or do you have to h...

Re: Who uses Live with a live band? What tips can you give me?

I use Live in a live band setting. I am a bass player and I sometimes play in a Rush cover/tribute type band. I have a Roland PK-5A controller that I trigger with my feet that I interface to Ableton and a Roland Juno-G synth. Sometimes I use the PK-5A to play notes, sometimes I trigger samples, etc....

SOLUTION for MIDI mapping of Audio Track SOLO switch

Problem Description I was trying to use a MIDI message to toggle the SOLO switch on the audio tracks that I have configured in a Live Set. That seemed to work the first time I sent the MIDI message, ie, the SOLO switch for the desired track would engage. However, I ran into the problem that when tr...

Re: Help Launching Multiple Audio Clips With Same MIDI Note

In ClyphX/ClyphX Pro, you'd use X-Controls for this, which add no latency whatsoever (unlike X-Clips). Also, unlike MIDI mapping, using X-Controls would make this mapping available in any set you opened as opposed to it only being available in sets that contain the MIDI mapping. I figured that ther...

Ever since adding ClyphX it seems that Ableton is slower in general. Everything from startup to changing Live Sets, etc. I removed it and I'm happy again.

Re: Help Launching Multiple Audio Clips With Same MIDI Note

Thank you! This approach works great. Thanks for the reply and the screen shot was very helpful!

With your approach I no longer get the latency between pressing the key and launching the clip like I did with ClyphX. Now it works exactly like I want.

Thanks Pitch Black!

Re: Help Launching Multiple Audio Clips With Same MIDI Note

After reading the ClyphX manual a bit more and playing around a bit, I think I have something that works, although it seems a bit clumsy. What I did was created a MIDI track and added a clip named (ie, the ClyphX script/command) "[] SCENE >" Then I mapped the MIDI note I want to the that MIDI clip l...

Help Launching Multiple Audio Clips With Same MIDI Note

I need help with launching multiple audio clips using the same MIDI note. I have Live 9.5 Standard on a laptop running Windows 8. I did a search which led me to ClyphX (a version that supports 9.5) and frankly I still need help. I downloaded and installed ClyphX and that seems to work fine. But I'm ...
