Re: Editing THEME

I don’t have a specific solution but I’d probably use one of the GUI editors to help discover what does and doesn’t work as there’s multiply shared colours across the interface.

Re: Finished project on Ableton Live 10 Lite too low in volume

When mixing your audio tracks, watch the level meter for the Master channel and get this level as close to 0db as possible without it turning red. You can also tick the Normalise check box in the bounce window when you render out your finished mix. This is assuming he means the peak volume and not o...

MIDI Controllers need resetting

Why, when I open Live 11 do I need to reset/reconnect my controllers every time I start Live? My MIDIFighter Twister has zero functionality until I unplug/reply gut after launching Live. Komplete Kontrol keyboard has basic keyboard functionality but the expression pedal isn’t recognised until I unpl...

Re: Ableton crashes when I freeze a track

When I have had this issue and not been able to resolve with an update, I have found using Melda ChannelMatrix (free) and freezing a side chain into ChannelMatrix, I can freeze and flatten the track. It’s a bit of a workaround but it works with groups as well.

Re: Disable default looping for new clips

Disable the automatic loop/warp in the record/warp/launch Preferences. I don't know why people keep suggesting "Disable the automatic loop/warp in the record/warp/launch Preferences". Because you mention the Warp button in your OP but not MIDI. If you’re gonna get salty with peoples respo...

Re: Deleted Audio Still Playing - Help

Live is still playing from session view rather than arrangement view. Notice how the audio clip is a slightly faded colour and the Back to Arrangement View button that needs to be pressed to play from this view not the session view. https://cdn-resources.ableton.com/80bA26cPQ1hEJDFjpUKntxfqdmG3ZykO/...

Re: 32000 sample rate FLAC vs. MP3

Oh my gosh, there's a lot of confusion in this thread. You should never submit an MP3 to a distributor for any reason, ever. There are many technical reasons for this. Confirm that you're exporting 16bit, 44,100khz files. Are they still over 200mb? If your distributor doesn't accept files more than...

Re: 32000 sample rate FLAC vs. MP3

MP3, even at 320kbs demonstrably does not sound the same as lossless audio. Just listen to the what got ripped out of Tom’s Diner while they developed the encoder. https://www.theverge.com/2015/2/19/8068923/mp3-compression-ghost-suzanne-vega-toms-diner Sorry, but that's nonsense.

Re: Can't set DDJ-SX2 MIDI Input

Not much help but I had nightmares with a DDJ-RRJ as well. I don’t think Pioneer’s drivers work well with Ableton. They haven’t updated them for years but when I tried to use the RRJ audio results were poor and I couldn’t get MIDI in from any device at all. I ended up having to buy a new interface w...

Re: 32 bit float recording

But you’re missing the point. If the AtoD converter can only provide 20 bits of dynamic range (at best) your -70db ant farts are going to be swamped with noise. You can’t just boost the file by 70db to bring that up without increasing noise floor even if you “record” at 32 bit. Your just encoding 20...

Re: Recorded two songs and now Ableton plays them at higher pitch.

I e only encountered this issue before when the system sample rate and the file sample rate don’t match. It sounds like this is somehow the issue but I can’t see why Ableton would change behaviours if you haven’t asked it to.

Re: 32 bit float recording

32 bit float encoding for the Zoom is specific for the Zoom so not interchangeable with Ableton. As jlgrimes says, there’s really no ADC/DACS around that is able to process more than 20bits worth of dynamic range so 32 bit recording is absolutely pointless. Similarly there are no microphones around ...
