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 ...

Re: MacPro5,1 + MOTU 828Mk3 @ 96KHz - bad stuttering

I would expect better results to be fair even though it’s a relatively old rig. It would be worth comparing versions to see what’s what but I’ve run Live 11 on a 10 year old MacBookPro with less threads and RAM and got much better performance than that so it can’t just be age.

Re: Using Aripods with Ableton without latency

I really can’t recommend enough getting a decent pair of headphones. AirPods or any sort of in ears give you a terrible reference.

Re: Convert drum rack to grouped tracks

Drum Rack splitting to grouped MIDI tracks would be a massive work flow improvement. If you have any significant number of samples in a drum rack it’s a pain and time consuming to create a MIDI track, drag the sample, create a MIDI track, drag a sample. It’s just automation of existing functionality...

Re: Aligning groove between two tracks

This sounds like someone recorded at the wrong sample rate. I’m guessing there’s a 44.1 / 48 kHz problem. If so you “should” be able to calculate the % difference in tempo and Warp or time-stretch back to tempo. Personally, I’d work out which one is correct and get the offender to fix the issue and ...

Re: MacBook Air M1 on battery

I’ve no idea how well the M1 Air will cope with Live 11 but there’s no washing out on either of my MacBook Pros running on battery. Live does rinse the battery though so I don’t get much time before needing to plug in.

Batch Creating Groove Templates

I have over 1000 DNA Groove Templates in MIDI format. Ideally I'd like to not spend the time manually extracting the grooves from MIDI in Ableton and wondered if anyone knows of a batch conversion method that would allow this be done with multiple MIDI files at once.

Re: Why do my tracks sound better inside Ableton than exported?

I’m astounded by the mis-information in this post. I know it’s dated but there needs to be some clarity about bit depth, sample rate, non-synced effects and analogue modelling. Live’s render is identical to real-time playback/record. This has been demonstrated many times using phase inversion betwee...

Re: Sharing ableton sound on zoom on a PC

In Zoom you just need to check the “Share computer sound” tick box to get Ableton into Zoom. For other packages you’ll need a way of looping back the audio as mentioned above.

Re: Where do pro producers (and you) get their sounds?

A really useful tip I was given to help manage the potentially overwhelming nature of production is to divide your time. If you have less than two hours to use, spend that time on tutorials, experimentation and sound design. Don’t get trapped in writing but just play with no real end goal. Anything ...

Re: Where do pro producers (and you) get their sounds?

The key thing I’ve learned over the years is that what you do with a sound can make or break it. A pretty standard kick drum processed through effective eq, compression and drum bus can become a dance floor monster. While it’s important to start with good sounds, good composition and arrangement is ...

Re: Another bug in Ableton 11, now with Izotope Stutter Edit 2

Strange, it’s working for me in 11. I wonder if it’s a version issue. Have you tried downloading and recording installing Stutter Edit? I’m working from a completely fresh PC build that’s around 3 weeks old now.
