Re: Ableton 10 live, best vocal settings/effects

lots of reverb, especially a wide stereo reverb, makes the vocal sound small and pushes it away into the distance. this is the opposite of the warm, intimate, close vocal sound you are referencing. if you want opinions on the quality of the recording, post a sample of the raw microphone track, witho...

Re: Ableton 10 live, best vocal settings/effects

I recorded a short clip in a loop, to let you know how it sounds. Sounds weird, right? https://instaud.io/3pVz so what exactly is your "pretty good mic"? and where/how are you recording? the mic, mic placement, mic technique and the room are all very important. it's a bit hard to tell as you've dro...

Re: Poor Audio Performance in Live with no CPU overload

i know you are trying to help, but there are some serious flaws in your advice. are you serious that you use two laptops just so you can run the batteries down and not have them plugged in??? firstly, the worst thing you can do to your laptop battery is to repeatedly and quickly discharge it to low ...

Re: Are there any statistics on how many people use Live 9 vs 10?

the thing with Native Instruments is that their hardware and software breeds like rabbits, and it's just too much work for them to support it all. i have mostly steered clear of their stuff for this reason.

Re: CPU usage in Live 10

for best performance a music production machine needs to be configured like a live performance machine, which means minimising background processes. Norton in particular have been hobbling Macs for many many years!

Re: Live foot controller other than Behringer?

nah, for me it's that the size and bulk is out-of-proportion to the functionality provided. also, when you travel a lot size and weight does matter.

as for Depeche Mode, i reckon the copious amounts of drugs made lugging all that gear easier, haha.

Re: Live foot controller other than Behringer?

i have mixed feelings about the FCB1010.

they are good value for sure. but for me way too chunky and heavy, and the stock firmware is a bit clunky.

i have a SoftStep 2 now, but do like the look of the Nektar Pacer too.

Re: Focusrite + 1/4 cable gives constant hum/buzz noise while recording in Ableton

probably a ground loop. are you using your MacBook on battery or mains power? if you are using mains power, are you using a 2 or 3 prong plug?

also, the synth should be going into a line input, and the guitar into one of the instrument inputs.

try re-mapping the Live shortcuts using the keyboard system preferences: https://support.apple.com/en-au/guide/mac-help/create-keyboard-shortcuts-for-apps-mchlp2271/mac note that for this to work you need copy the function name from the Live menu exactly . also, watch out for conflicts with existing...

Re: My CMD+OPT+L and CMD+OPT+I are broken

they work fine here in Live 10. most likely cause is that they have been re-mapped to something else in the keyboard system preferences, or by some other app you have installed...

Re: Does Waves want me to use the crack?

i dunno if a stimulant will help in your situation. maybe try a muscle relaxant?
