Re: Drum Rack Launch Quantization

Ahhh thanks so much for doing that, you're right in that it doesn't necessarily solve my problem (just gives it to me a bar earlier!) but it set me thinking and I'll try it with two of the devices rather than four and then I can trigger it with half a bar notice, which may be easier logistically tha...

Re: Drum Rack Launch Quantization

Thanks for getting back to me. I use Ableton in session view with a live band and the project is a pretty complex mix of mic/line inputs, backing tracks, DMX control, ClyphX Pro commands, Program Changes for FX pedals etc. We have up to 3/4 scenes per song which I trigger quantized via midi controll...

Drum Rack Launch Quantization

Hi all, can anyone help me out please? I want to trigger samples in a drum rack using my midi controller, but have the samples quantised to launch at the start of the next bar - is it possible??? I know how to trigger drum rack samples immediately, and I know how to launch clips with quantisation, b...

Re: Changing MIDI Instruments Quickly for Live Performance

You're welcome, and good luck! In my experience changing sounds and turning unused racks on/off all works really smoothly.

Re: Changing MIDI Instruments Quickly for Live Performance

Hi, although I'm not a keyboardist I do use the drum racks in Ableton with a live band and there's a couple of keyboardist videos that I found helpful as starting points for what we needed to do:

Re: Use Ableton with Mainstage or logic sounds

There are a couple of YouTube videos that a keyboard player has done showing his set-up. Worth looking at some of the US worship channels too.

Sorry I can't remember the specifics. It also varies whether you're on Mac or PC.

Re: MIDI output

Hi, if I've understood you correctly, once you've dragged the MIDI clip to a track, add an instrument to that track and that will turn it from a MIDI track to an audio track and you'll be able to route that to Master.

I hope that solves it.

Re: Preparing my first mix for a big P.A.

Hi, will you be playing your mix from your laptop using Ableton? If so you could create separate stems for kick, percussion, bass, keys etc. and then eq/mix each stem when you plug into the PA and hear how they sound. You will only really know how it's going to sound when you use the PA in the room ...

Re: CPU overload M1 chip on Big Sur Mac OS

Mine was just a bog standard drum rack with 16 samples in it. Nothing special about it, and other racks were fine, but as soon as I deleted that one the CPU was fine. Project ran about 40% on my old MBP, went up to 80%+ on my M1 and then down to 18% when I deleted the rack.

Re: Volume Scale in Session View is Missing

Hi, you may have clicked on the "M" button in the bottom right of session view (where you can select the ins/outs, sends/returns etc.)?

Re: Switching through sounds during live performance

Hi, I haven't tried it specifically with keyboards but if I've understood your issue right then you could give this a go: 1. Add an Instrument rack to your keys track 2. Create chains for each different instances of sound/FX etc. and map the chain selector to a macro, then midi map the macro to a MI...

Re: CPU overload M1 chip on Big Sur Mac OS

Hi, did you start the project on another machine and are now opening it on your new M1? I had a similar problem when I got my M1 and it was one of the instrument racks on an imported project causing the high CPU. I found the rack by gradually deleting tracks until CPU suddenly dropped from 80+% to 1...

Re: New User...MIDI Automation

Also, are the switches on your Helix set to momentary or toggle? And would it suit your set-up to use the Helix to launch a scene rather than an individual clip? If so you could then map a Helix button to scene launch, enabling you just to launch scenes sequentially (if you set Preferences to be Sel...

Re: New User...MIDI Automation

Hi, could you post a couple of screenshots of your setup please eg Midimap mode, preferences (record/warp/launch), your session view? That usually makes its easier for us to understand the issues. I've used MIDI commands from controllers in the past to trigger backing tracks so it's definitely possi...

Re: No MIDI Master output with Yamaha DTX-Multi 12

Hi, forgive me if you already know this, the M12 can send onboard WAV samples and/or MIDI notes, but they're separate things. If I understand your problem correctly you're able to get audio from your interface so it sounds like you're using the M12 to trigger onboard samples - is that right? If so y...
