Push 2 or Novation SL MK3 ?

Been "producing" for a year now (mostly EDM/Chill House) and just started playing with hardware via the Launchkey Mini MK3 and really loved it. Invested in a Push 2 a few days ago but thinking of returning and picking up an SL MK3 49 or 61. Push seems like a great device and obviously have...

Changing Instrument of Audio Clip?

Is there a way to take an audio bass loop and change the instrument used to play it? I tried the Slice to Midi feature multiple ways but can't figure out how to change the instrument without completely changing the slices. I tried Melody to Midi but it farted out way too many random midi notes to go...

Switching Compression Mid-Arrangement

I have a drum track where one Glue Compressor (Drum- Rock Parallel Room) sounds better through a majority of the track except for the main build/drop, where I'm finding a different Glue Compressor (Drum- Gentle Sidechain EQ) is sounding better, particularly on the claps. Anything "wrong" w...

Re: Return Tracks

Gotcha. Beyond more refined EQ/frequency control, is there an advantage to using EQ Eight vs the built-in EQ on Ableton's stock Delay plug-in? Especially if just really cutting lows and highs?

Re: Return Tracks

Great tip, thanks! Already working nicely. What about the Delay return track? Similar technique? Any recos?

Return Tracks

I already have reductive EQs on my individual tracks but just came across someone mentioning to EQ on Reverb and Delay return tracks as well. Should I EQ return Reverb/Delay tracks? And if so, before or after the actual Return/Reverb device if doing so only to cut unwanted low frequencies that might...

Re: Volume/Gain Automation

What about if I wanted to avoid grouping? Is it ok to throw a Utility on a Return track and automate the Utility Gain knob when jamming in Session rather than the Channel Volume knob? Any downside?

Re: Bouncing Audio Tracks / Prepping a Mix Session

Why wouldn't you just bounce the said midi tracks to audio with any effects/automations already on there, then add/adjust additional effects/automations if needed? Curious as to whether one way is "better"than the other?

Re: Bouncing to Audio Before Mixing

Gotcha. And what about if I need to bounce bc of CPU issues? Bounce with midi audio effects and any channel automations embedded in the audio? Also, what do you mean by producing randomness? Does that actually happen?

Re: Bouncing to Audio Before Mixing

Thanks for the reply. At this point I plan on mixing/mastering the final track in Ableton. Still, I heard it's good to bounce midi channels to audio before starting the volume/fader mix. I currently have EQs and other effects on these midi channels, hence the question. So based on that, is there a p...

Bouncing to Audio Before Mixing

When bouncing midi to audio before starting a mixdown, should I bounce midi with that channel/audio's effects or without? Is it better to bounce to audio and then add effects and effect chains to the audio rather than the midi? Does it matter? Thanks

Volume/Gain Automation

I recorded a jam in Session View with different Volume automations on various tracks. I just pulled it into Arrangement View and realized this will be hard to mix as adjusting any track volumes will delete my automations. Any recos? Recreate volume automations with Utility Gain automations? Also, an...

Re: Proper Export Settings

Awesome, thanks for the response and info., super helpful.

Does audio quality get affected if I "up convert" from 44100 to 48000?

Proper Export Settings

Noob here trying to figure out how to properly export my track. The finished track was created at 44100 sample rate and now I want to export it for regular mp3 listening. I don't plan on doing any further mixing or mastering. This is final for, idk.. upload somewhere or just send around to friends. ...
