Re: Starting a daily music practice: the 40 Minute Music Project

@Timbeaux Thanks for the kind words. I don't really master these per-say, I just throw one of the stock mastering racks on my main output channel and crank the input gain until it sounds reasonable.

Re: Starting a daily music practice: the 40 Minute Music Project

Glad to hear that this idea has caught on with a few folks! Funny thing that music making is such a pleasure for most of us, and yet it's often the first thing we compromise when schedules are tight. A quick update on my own process: I was out of town for a few days so missed some sessions (in the f...

Re: Starting a daily music practice: the 40 Minute Music Project

Re: Starting a daily music practice: the 40 Minute Music Project

I can fully relate to struggling with focus, too. Far too often I've reached the end of the day feeling like I "didn't have time" for music, only to realize that I'd spent hours doing something unproductive, e.g. Facebook. A big part of my trying to form this music-making habit is an attempt to trea...

Starting a daily music practice: the 40 Minute Music Project

(Cross-posted this to the monome forums as well.) Like many of us, I often struggle to find time for making music- or at least I feel that I'm struggling. Considering how happy music making generally makes me feel, this seems like a damn shame. So I'm taking a page from the exercise crowd and crumpl...

CPU spikes during GUI operations: select, resize, drag, etc.

I've been suffering from this for quite some time, but keep neglecting to post about it. Am I the only one that gets significant CPU spikes any time I perform simple GUI operations in a fairly complex set? I'm working on track now that averages around 25% CPU usage as reported by Live's meter. Any G...

Re: Cables for Studio monitors

I've had good luck with Monoprice- quite cheap, and seem to be of high quality. Resellers on eBay regularly ship exactly these cables for $15-$20 each.

Re: padKontrol Playback Indication

The padKontrol responds to MIDI note messages sent to it by lighting the pad(s) associated with those notes. You'll need to explicitly route your MIDI clip back to the padKontrol in order to make this happen: Create a new MIDI track. Set the "source" to the MIDI track your clip is playing on, and ma...
