Re: Pitch Bend Range?

That's the problem. Everyone knows how to do with with simpler, which I'm not using. If I'm not using simpler, is there just no hope? Thanks for the info on octaves/semitones Which instrument are you using? I've removed all of the factory presets from Ableton, so I'm not sure which one is in the In...

Re: Pitch Bend Range?

An octave is 12 semitones. Two octaves are 23 semitones etc. Pitch bend range in general depends on how the synth receiving pitch bend is set to respond to it, and is usually set for each synth patch/program. Justanametouse has explained how Simpler is limited in pitch bend response and how that ca...

Re: Pitch Bend Range?

Which instrument is being used in that rack? I'm assuming Simpler. If so, see my reply at the bottom of this post:

Re: Change automation

You can make a selection of the automation points you want to move by highlighting them and click-dragging one of the points. Alternatively, you could just add a Utility device at the end of your effects chain and adjust the gain.

Re: List of poly synths in Ableton Live 10?

All of the stock synths in Ableton are polyphonic (Analog, Operator, etc...). If you're extending that to Max for Live devices, some are, some aren't. For instance, Bass is part of the Max for Live Essentials pack and is monophonic. Most of the stuff you'll come across is likely polyphonic with the ...

Re: Any ideas on this synth patch?

Could probably get close with a couple of slightly detuned saw waves and a square wave to add a little body. Filter to taste and maybe add some distortion/overdrive to give it some bite.

Re: Core 2 duo laptop for Live 10?

Have you tried running a demo to see how it goes?

EDIT: Sorry, just noticed this was specifically asking about 10.1, not 10. I'd imagine it would perform much the same.

Re: Upgrade or not

Once upon a time, Macs were better for music production and creative tasks in general (I don't think too many people would argue that), but nowadays, it's really personal preference. Part of the reason why that belief has stuck around is just good marketing on Apple's part and parroting by creative ...

Re: Which effect(s) on Springsteen vocals of I'm on fire?

Haven't listened to it for a while, but from what I remember it's just a really pronounced reverb and a touch of delay.

This would be a question better suited for NIs user forums, as it is one of their products. However, a quick Google search came up with the following:

Re: Question about Ableton and RAM (memory)

If you are using midi tracks mainly, this shouldn't affect Ram or disk usage, as midi is pretty low bandwidth data. Midi tends to affect CPU use if using softsynths. If you are using large sample libraries however, you could eat up ram. You can monitor your ram usage on a performance monitor progra...

Easiest way to have everything set up how you'd like when you open Live is to create a template.

Re: Question about Ableton and RAM (memory)

If you're using a lot of plugins, that's adding CPU strain. Adding RAM won't really alleviate that problem. Trying freezing tracks or bouncing them to audio. You could also put the plugins on a "low quality" mode while you're working and turn them up when it's time to bounce if they have the option.
