I still don't get why you'd pay cd prices (or more) for an album's worth of material in 256kbps aac compressed crap format. What happened to the idea of lossless downloads? Hard for me to swallow "upgrading" my music collection over and over again (oh they will charge again you when lossless/PCM dow...

It still sounds like a failing voice chip to me. My Juno 106's death was slow and painful, starting out much as you describe and gradually worsening until 5 out of 6 chips are dead. The cost of replacing them is more than the synth is worth, but I'm too discouraged to get another one because it will...

fluoride is basically a population control drug. It was used to lower the aggression of the jews in nazi germany (the first time it was used) and is still used today. It simply has the effect of making the drinker docile and easily controlled. It has no link to increased tooth and gum health what s...

This of course should get fixed in an update.

But also, it would be nice if when you disengage EXT sync, live would keep the current (synced) BPM instead of jumping back to the default set BPM. This way you could change clock masters on the fly without the tempo jumping all over the place.

You definitely need to disengage the EXT button before you remove Augustus Loop if you were using Augustus Loop as a clock source or Live freaks out. It SHOULD just revert to normal operation, but it doesn't. I can remember to do it this way, just seems silly that if you mess up, you totally lose c...

Augustus Loop 1.7 Sync Problems

While slaving Live 7's tempo to Augustus Loop, sometimes the tempo seems to glitch and speed up or slow down momentarily. I have the box checked for rounded tempo values in AL's prefs. It 's especially common (and problematic) while recording a new clip in Live since it warps the new clip in strange...

EXT sync button disappearing

If I slave Ableton Live 7 to an instance of Augustus Loop with the EXT sync button (upper left corner), and later delete Augustus Loop, the EXT sync button disappears too.

And there's no way to get it back.

Or use the transport controls.

I guess I forgot to mention that you don't even need to use Live's master tempo :lol: I guess I don't really understand what tempo you're tapping if not Live's master tempo... :? I guess my issue is that in order to keep your loops in sync with Live's Bar/Beat divisions, you need to start out with ...

That Electrix Virtual Repeater looks like it might solve the initial loop problem.

Anyone know if it can serve as a MIDI Master Clock? Then you could slave Live to it and all would be gravy...

Problem I have with that is I'll tap tempo, then while I'm playing guitar I'll stray slightly from that tempo if I don't have a click track, so that when I close the loop it'll be a little off. Which means a lot off when it comes to looping.

So it looks like I'm stuck with a click track for now...

Another neat trick is to map all instances of A.L. tap tempo buttons to a single midi control (like a foot pedal) so that when you set the length of the first loop, all other tracks will have the exact same loop lengths. I'm not sure if we mean the same thing, but I have found it very difficult to ...

Macbook Pro headphone balance is off.

Working with Macbook Pro C2D 2.33. Updated everything. Problem is new, and concerns the built-in headphone output (1/8" jack). It seems to be sending out low signal on the left channel. I've tried it with different headphones and into my stereo receiver but the volume sounds low on the left. Playing...
