exporting to 16-bit 44k via Pro-l2 vs Ableton vs no dither!

EDIT: so I just used the sample rate and bit converter in iTunes and it literally turns a 24-bit 48k wav file into 16-bit 44k identically, no .2 LUFS drop or any noticeable difference as opposed when dithering/exporting and down sampling in Ableton, has anyone else noticed this?

Re: Are there any statistics on how many people use Live 9 vs 10?

Apparently the NI Komplete Kontrol A series keyboards does not and will not support Live 9.7, only 10.05 and above. Is NI shooting them selves in the foot by snubbing a large market or am I the last fool on the planet that doesn’t need or want to upgrade? I just want to know if I am alone. I use li...

Re: your export options for mix down/master?

I only dither when I need to release something and it has to be brought down to 16-bit 44k (I use triangular option most times) otherwise for me there's no point, I keep everything at 24-bit 48k all the way, not sure if the human ear can tell the difference between 24-bit and 32-bit, I know 32 bit h...

Re: Best simple midi keyboard for Live?

i'm back to using my motif as my main workhorse but I have an Alesis VI49, the keys are really nice and it has pitch and modulation as well as assignable knob and buttons, Ableton picks it up as a control surface as well, not sure about browsing patches in vst's with it

Re: iCloud Sync Problem

So I use Ableton live 10. My Mac is constantly syncing to iCloud Drive which I don’t want it to. It’s slowing down the production process in Ableton, making it constantly freeze and slow down. The solution would be to stop iCloud from syncing, but once I do that. It creates some kind of archive fol...

Re: External instrument and Kronos help, last step help

The Kronos has a USB audio interface bug/"feature" that is probably the cause. Any audio sent from Live to the Kronos is looped back and mixed in with the audio sent from Kronos to Live. Example: Record Kronos playing a piano sound to track 1. Record Kronos playing a bass sound to track 2. Record K...

Here’s the one I think I used, this might now solve your problem but it worked for me https://usa.yamaha.com/support/updates/usb_midi_driver_for_mac.html The main directory that leads you there and lists all the drivers seems to be down so I just gave you the link to the one I used, there’s a good i...

Re: New MacBook issues with Midi Controller

Did your old Mac book have a Yamaha usb driver installed? Your new MacBook Pro will need one, I had a similar problem recently Depending if your Yamaha p250(not familiar with it) can transfer audio over usb you might need the lastest Yamaha Steinberg usb driver, if not you need the one that is usb/m...

Re: Recording Vinyl via USB: Clipping Issues

There was a thread on Gearslutz about a guy going directly from his turntable phono into a interface that had rca and had clipping issues, and in the end was his cartridges/needles which no one thought would be the case or even should be a problem but he was able to lower the gain with 3.5 carts ins...

Re: Yamaha Modx and Ableton?

The Kronos audio interface doesn't work properly when monitoring the DAW while recording from the Kronos. This is the problem: the USB audio send is the full stereo output of the Kronos. That includes any audio coming from the DAW over USB, requiring muting the DAW output when recording the Kronos ...
