Re: Ableton Live and Vienna Ensemble Pro

It’s important to be clear that MIDI tracks and MIDI channels are not the same thing . I get it I - I never said I didn't - look up some of the other DAWs as things like Pro Tools (which I inherently don't like) support 48 PORTS 16 CHANNELS each... The networking is INSIDE the plugin and handled in...

Re: Vienna Ensemble Pro

nonchai - I also posted a thread about Ableton Live and VEP as over the holiday break I built a Slave computer for my large Orchestral Libraries (like Spitfire Audio's products) - https://forum.ableton.com/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=237329 Have you figured out a way to use Live with VEP's multiple MIDI por...

Re: Ableton Live and Vienna Ensemble Pro

As for tracks in Live, you can set a MIDI track to receive and send whatever channel to whichever MIDI port you want . The external instrument plugin is something I tend not to use despite all my synths being hardware. I prefer to set up a MIDI and an audio track instead (and the plugin requires yo...

Re: Ableton Live and Vienna Ensemble Pro

Shift and TLW thanks a ton - I am definitely running on a PC (Windows 10) I don't own any Apple products - I did realize that the 16 channels (on only 1 port) was my issue as I was setting up the server to receive on Port 2 (channel 1,2,3, etc.), 3 (channel 1,2,3, etc.), etc. So for now I can get it...

Re: Ableton Live and Vienna Ensemble Pro

Oh mate - this is waaaay above my knowledge level. I can see exactly what you're wanting to do and why you're wanting to do it, but the network thing is throwing me for a loop.

Re: Ableton Live and Vienna Ensemble Pro

It is a catch 22 on Berklee's recommendations. Their Electronic Music classes (which I'm also taking) often require Ableton Live whereas what is being suggested by the Orchestral Classes is Digital Performer.

Ableton Live and Vienna Ensemble Pro

I appreciate any help I can get on this subject. I would very much like to continue to use Ableton Live as I switched from Cubase about 18 months ago and love it - however I'm also taking classes at Berklee Online and am in need to being able to do full Orchestrations. The solution for huge orchestr...
