and turn it down
If only.

Next question you'll get is "Which compressor or limiter?"
True. I guess a pretty popular mindset is to start loud and figure out a way to make it 10x louder.

Re: Default Gain Staging of Clips

My guess would be a mix of a sort of "loudness war" and it just being easy to say "make everything hit at 0 db" for the sake of consistency when scrolling through. Could they have everything hit at -8db? Sure, but that's not the way it is. Like chrk mentioned, most people want stuff to start loud an...

Re: master track effects

In addition to The Glue and EQ, I like the Color Limiter M4L device that comes with Suite.

Re: Pitch Bend Range?

I wasn't aware that Intro provides presets with the non-Intro instruments. All of Live basic core instruments and effects are installed with Intro, and on the License/Maintainance preferences tab you can (or at least could when I used it) unlock a demo mode where you can access them all, but not sa...

Re: Pitch Bend Range?

Sorry man I finally got what you meant but was at work all day :x . I also found a work around after this post. I just resampled it and then I was able to automate the transposition. It appears I cannot do the editing in my version; Oh well someday I can get the full version! Glad to hear it! Sorry...

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.

Re: Software issue maybe

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:
