Well stated. And that thread shows very consistent feedback from customers.

Re: How Do I Convert Piano Sounds to MIDI?

The XS8 has a USB port on the back that transfers MIDI. Download and install the USB MIDI driver from Yamaha and connect the piano to the computer using a USB cable. Then the piano can be used as a MIDI controller within Live.

Re: HELP - programming MIDI instruments

That should be handled by the synth instrument itself. So it’s not a global setting in Live. Look for a setting in the instrument called portamento, glide, or slide. That would turn on and off this behavior.

Re: Always a 30 ms latency when audio clip is recorded

Do you have another DAW you can try to see if it’s happening there also? That would rule out anything related to the audio interface and external hardware.

On that note, make sure there are no DSP effects running on that audio input channel on the MOTU.

Re: Always a 30 ms latency when audio clip is recorded

Do you have any plugins loaded onto any other tracks, including the master track? And this question applies even if the plugins are disabled. I’ve seen a large delay when there is any other delay-causing plugin on any track in the project. This happens even if the plugin is active. For example, do y...

Re: Help needed: Audio -> MIDI

When you right click the audio clip the command is “Convert Drums to New MIDI Track”. Is that the one you tried? Because you mentioned “...to New Audio Track”. I have found this command works quite well for tracks that contain only drums. If you have a track with only snare hits, then it should easi...

Re: Can't start playback where midi edit marker is (vs. arrgmnt)

I agree. You should be able to click within the clip view to set the play point. Clicking in the upper area of the clip view to get the speaker icon to appear is tedious. Same for having to go up to the arrangement view to set the play point, when all the work is being done in the clip at the time. ...

Re: Changing position in a song in session view

Sounds like you want to work out the song in session view and then create it in arrangement view. That's similar to my use case. One important setting for this is the Quantization setting. Set it to 4 or 8 bars. That makes life easier for two reasons. First is that your session view clips will end u...

Re: Ableton manual and changing from PT

I have found that the Live manual overall is quite good. Perhaps it could use a very basic getting started type of section for beginners. But otherwise as a reference manual I’ve been happy with it. There are some omissions here and there, which have been highlighted on this forum. Fortunately those...

Re: 10.3 is unusable LAGS , UNUSABLE

Have you guys also tried the FPS limit in Options.txt? I picked this up in another thread and it seems to help. Try adding this in addition to the GDI option. You can try different numbers. Mine is at 20fps.

Re: VST confusion

This article gives an overview on where to install them. Basically, 64 bit VST2 plugins end with .dll and go in one location, whereas 64 bit VST3 plugins end with .vst3 and go in another location. https://help.ableton.com/hc/en-us/articles/209071729-Using-VST-plug-ins-on-Windows 64-bit VST2 .dll fil...

Re: Change the Piano roll editor

I completely agree with this. In fact, I’d like to have the draw tool use the prior note length as the next note length also, so it is supported with a single click. It should also support resizing notes by hovering at either end. And right-click should delete a note.

Re: Lock piano roll to key scale & mode

That has to be done per each clip on a track, correct? I used to think that placing ghost notes at the beginning of a track was good, but then saw that when making a new clip on the existing track, it didn’t retain the ghost notes. It would be best if Live supported scale highlighting (see FL Studio...
